This kit contains one screw with rubber gasket and threaded sealant. The screw head is 7/16".
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
First I watched the online video to be sure of the parts I would need and for any tips that might make the repair easier.(The video suggested replacing the bolt, and it looked to me to be a good idea to replace the seal). I removed the softener dispenser (which exposed the inner cap). Then I removed the inner cap (which exposed the agitator bolt). I removed the bolt and lifted out the agitator. Popped the top portion off, replaced the directional cogs and then put it all back together. I am a fairly handy person but appliances are not my thing. The video gave me all the assurance I needed. Fifteen minutes and $15; sure beats calling a repairman!

Fantastic. With your exploded views and video it was super simple. Will definitely use you again.
I removed the top cover of the auger and then pulled out the cap and seal. Removed the agitator mounting bolt and lifed the whole assembly out. If you are new at this just follow the instructions that are very well put togother to help if you have not done this before. For me I use to do HVAC and Appliance Repair work so that made this easy repairs for me.
remove softener dispenser,remove seal plate,remove bolt,than lift out agitator. Seperate agitator halfs. Then remove agitator section. Follow diretions that come with repair kit. Then reinstall
The "dogs" were worn out; I used a socket and extension to remove the auger, then replaced the thrust spacer, auger-agitator along with the repair kit. The most common culprit which wears out is usually the cam dogs. When you hear a grinding sound with the machine under a load, it usually means the dogs are not grabbing properly. If you see that the agitator isn't rotating, you will need to replace the nylon dogs. In most cases, the old auger will likely be in good shape, so it's important to check the teeth where the cam dogs make contact before ordering the parts.
I am a woman and not very experienced with large appliance repairs. This was very simple thanks to the diagram posted and the other comments. It saved us time, repair costs and a new washer for now. The ultimate recycling :). Thank you to all who posted

Followed the "pictures" and was easy enough.
It was easy after watching the video. No need to replace bolt. Recommend to remove the agitator inspect and the order the parts so that you get all in shipping. Grease is not needed and expensive to buy a tube, should have included as small one time applicator. Cleaning took more time then replacing the part.
Pretty simple, I removed one of the screws that holds the agitator, pulled it up completely and put the new one in. Took me 5 minutes to do so.
The cam in the agitator of the Whirlpool Ultimate Care II (LSQ7533JQ0) was a little different than the instructions and videos I could find on the web. The difference is that the cam has tabs that keep the cam in place with the agitator. I had to try to pry the tabs loose enough so that when I stood on the agitator base and then pulled up on the part of the agitator that pulls the clothes down, only then would the cam finally pop loose. Once I was able to do that, everything was easy to replace.
First, know that I am the least mechanical person in the world. Second, kudos to this website. Diagnosis was perfect, and the kit worked perfectly! If I were able to do this in under a half hour... anybody will be fine. Be sure to get the grease separately... I used silicone gel because that's what I had.Saved about $90 probably!
