Top of the agitator wasn't spinning.

I simply removed the bolt from the inside of the agitator and pull the whole the straight up. It came aloose pretty easily. I took the old clothes mover off and put the new one on. On the inside of the mover the dog ears and spacer easily comes out. I removed the spacer and replaced the dogs ears. I put everything back together the way it was when I took it apart. It works as good as it did when I first got it.

The top agitator was not spinning

I popped the dispenser cap off, pulled off the plastic cover that sits on top of the agitator directional cogs assembly, and used a socket wrench with 2 extensions on it to unscrew the nut holding the assembly in place. I misplaced my socket screwdriver and rather than try to buy a nutdriver that matched the size, I just bought a little 3/8" socket extension kit (I needed about 8" of length to be able to use a normal socket wrench). My hands are pretty big so I just had to use pliers to pull the agitator cogs assembly out. Next I just turned the assembly upside down, slipped the plastic ring off that holds the cogs in place, and put the new cogs in place of the old ones. Reassembly was just as easy. The job took about 15 minutes, and once everything was back together the agitator worked like it was brand new.

Replaced the dog ears.

It was easy, take off the cap, then loosen the nut. Take it apart, change the dog ears, put back together. It was done.
