Took off top cap of agitator then removed cover that is over the bolt that holds the agitator to the shaft.
With a rachet and extension & 7/16 socket and holding bottom of agitator still so the bolt could be broken loose then holding only the top of agitator to
loosen the bolt the rest of the way. It had been in for
so long the bottom of the agitator had to be broken loose and then the top of the agitator came off like it
was suppose to. Then I took out the gear that has the Agitator Directional Cogs attached to it and took
out the old COGS and replace them with new COGS. Held the top of the agitator upside and put
the gear with the new COGS. So the cogs wouldn't fall out and slide the gear into place and then turned the agitator right side up & put it back on the
washer Machine. Had to use pliers to hold the bolt
straight to line it up and put the bolt in place then
tighten bolt job is complete.
