I removed the cap of the agitator assembly to reveal a seal cap. This was easily removed. The bolt holding the agitator assembly involved the only tool a 7/16th deep socket. With the bolt removed the entire agitator assembly came out of the drum. Separating the two pieces of the agitator assembly was easy due to a broken tab on the agitator cam assembly. As long as you pay attention to how the parts come apart assembly with the new part is easy. The cams will go into cam assembly two ways only one is correct. The next part was a little tricky. There is nothing to hold the cams in the assembly so I had to invert the top part of the agitator assembly put the cam assembly into the agitator then turned everything upright. With the cams in the assembly line up the two parts of the agitator and line up the post with the holes in the cam assembly. Push everything together until the post are fully seated in the cam assembly, it should click when seated. Install the assembled agitator into the drum and secure with the bolt. Make sure the seal on the bolt is good. Install the seal and the cap and your done. I estimate I saved about $100 with the help of Part Select. Thank you very much
