Your video told me all the tools required and what steps I needed to do. Directions were fool proof, except the required Agitator Grease (your part # PS347804) described in the video is not part of the agitator rebuild kit. Bad planning. Maybe a waterproof grease from the hardware store would work...anyway I took the time to reorder the grease before starting repair. The repair kit did include a new rubber washer for the agitator bolt (I had ordered a whole new bolt). Caution: it would be easy to over tighten the agitator bolt. Make mental note of taughtness, during dissemble. Aside from that I was totally finished with the repair in 30 minutes. And the best was: what a difference in agitator perforance! A twenty-plus year old machine like new again.
