Agitator wasn't working

I'm really impressed with this website. I was able to quickly diagnose the problem with my machine. I watched the video and thought that this was something that I might be able to do myself. I'm a woman and I like to understand how things work and do my own repairs when I can. My machine is over 16 years old, so I had to scrape some waxy-like buildup from the inner cap before I could remove it. Other than that, I followed the instructional video, which was excellent. I found that I did not need the inner cap seal that I had ordered because a new one was included in the agitator repair kit.

Top section of the agitator not rotating.

The agitator kit comes with everything you see in the picture plus the Thrust spacer and O ring. Removed the fabric softener container from the top of the agitator. This revealed the sealing cap that covers the bolt. Removed it using the 2 little handles and rocked it back and forth until it came loose. It doesn't take that much force. Now you see the the bolt to remove. You'll need a socket wrench that has a long extension section ( I didn't have one so I put 2 smaller extension on / it works). Once the wrench was securely in place on the bolt, I held onto the bottom section agitator/ fin with one hand and removed the bolt with the other. I pulled up on the unit and both agitator sections came off together. Once out of the machine, I held the bottom section with my feet and pulled up on the upper section to separate them ( pretty easy) . Removed all the old parts to replace and did a complete clean up of the shaft and bottom( mine was 21 years since serviced there). Used agitator grease on the cleaned shaft area and on the Thrust spacer section. I assembled the agiator dog ears part asper instruction and used a needle nose pliers to remove the plastic nubs that are only use for factory installations. Put the assembly into the agitator tube, then onto the lower section. I put that back onto the shaft, wiggling it until it fell into the grooved section. Once everything was in place, I put in the bolt ( didn't get a new one in time, so I used the old one / it works) and tightened it good. I put a new O ring on the protective cap. I greased it a little so it would go back into place easily, it did. Replaced the softener holder and I was done. Works like new.
