I removed the top part by hand (where additives go), reached in and removed the inner cover by pinching it and picking it up. With a socket wrench, I removed the nut, then jiggled the whole thing until it came off. I took the complete agitator (upper and lower) out of the washing machine, then took it apart on a table. I noticed the cam had broken pieces in it so I ordered the complete cam package (under $7). If I ever do this again, I will take several pictures with my digital camera because I wasn't sure if certain parts were to be replaced upright or downwards since they appeared to go either way. Fortunately, there were other descriptions posted that helped me do this correctly...not to mention the diagrams provided by PartSelect. With this information, I put it back together and the washing machine works great! I highly recommend PartSelect! One more thing...I got my parts in only 2 days, so we weren't without a washer very long.
