SOURCE: Remove the agitator
The agitator is actually pressed on without mechanical fasteners . Grab the bottom of the agitator firmly on each side. Pull up with a quick, hard **** (careful not to hit your face). If this does not work, wrap a belt under the agitator. Grab the belt firmly and pull up with a quick, hard ****.

Starting at the center agitator stem, there should be a cover cap or something that is removed to allow access to the bolt or nut that hold the agitator on.
Reply back what you find and I'll help further.

SOURCE: no agitation
I have a Whirlpool Utlimate Care II LSQ8520JQ0. For those having a problem separating the upper and lower agitator halves, here's how I solved it after about 2 hrs of aggravation.
Called Sears and Whirlpool with no help (didn't have tech manual...go figure).
I saw the same post with the problem with melted hooks (I called them tabs) ontop of the dog housing being melted. You can differentiate the melted tabs from the dog housing as the dog housing is usually clear plastic (after wiping all the crud off) and the tabs are white as they are part of the agitator. There will be four white tabs on top of the dog housing. They look both smashed and melted. I took a flat head screw driver and and hammer and chipped off the white melted tabs visible on top. I inevitably also chipped some of the dog housing but only marginally. Once chipped off you'll see the tabs are actually rectangular in shape. At this point I EASILY pulled the top and lower halves apart. Those retangular tabs are the molded part of the agitator housing extending down past the dog housing. You're home free at this point.
It's the melted tabs on top of the dog housing that keeps you from separating the halves. What a pain but finally figured it out.

if anyone is still doing this.. i had a hotpoint model type vbxr1060. It had just a cap on agitator no extra bolts and used two hammers to get underneath the base creating leverage..
Work both hammers in (using the nail puller side) as far as possible towards the center of the agitator on opposing sides and use them to pull up and slightly outwards towards the sides of the basin. When you get it off you will see why this works as the agitator's base has mini clips that grasp the base of the air bell housing. hope this tip helps someone.
