Went online to Parts Select and typed in Model #. Looked thru repair help and found very simular problems. I did disassemble the upper prtion of the aggitator by removing softner dispenser. Once inside I used a shoe string and routed it thru the two handles on the plastic cover and pulled up moderately, exposing the cam and doggs. I used a 7/16" socket on a 6" xtension to reach the mounting bolt. Slowly turn bolt counter-clockwise holding the lower agitator. Once the mounting bolt was out I temporarily replaced the plastic cover. I pulled up on the UPPER agitator to completely remove it from the tub. Once set on a firm surface I again pulled out the plastic cover ,bolt and cam cover, exposing the cam and dogs. I shook them out. I replaced everything with what was included in the agitator repair kit ( great kit). Everything for assembly is as the instructions state and totaly a reverse process. Take care not to over tighten the bolt. I did take this oppurtunity to clean the tub and agitators. I did also remove the lower agitator to clean the area. Thanks Parts Select!
