Question about Washing Machines
I took off the fabric softener cup to expost the dust cover, but I can't seem to get the dust cover off to get at the spot where the dogs are at.
Shoot some wd40 or some other spray lubricant around the edge of the dust collector and let it soak for 30 minutes and the you can take a pair of pliers and grab one of the ears closest to the edge and pull up. There is a rubber seal that has dried and gotten stuck. That should removemthe dust cap and allow you to access the 1/2" nut to remove the upper half of the agitator and replace your dogs.

SOURCE: Fabric softener doesn't dispense
Fabric softener dispensers are notorious for getting all gummed up and clogged. Remove the dispenser cup and soak in some hot water to dissolve all residue. While you have the dispenser removed check under the dispenser cap in the agitator for gummy residue as well. Clean with hot water. There should also be an agitator seal cap under the dispenser. Make sure the cap and rubber o-ring are seated properly. Last of all, if the dispenser has a cone shaped cup inside, make sure it is inserted cone-side UP. The cup is designed to allow fabric softener to roll down the sides of it, NOT hold it. I hope this helps.

The should be a bolt that goes thu the center that holds that down with the bottom part of the agiatator.. it might have pulled loose or rounded out the whole for the top part here is a link and a pic http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImagePageJava.shtml?productTypeID=0153200&brandID=3048&modelDesc=WASHER&modelNumber=SAV365ZAWW&documentID=M0512408&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PV&titleType=TUB%2C%20INNER%20%26%20OUTER%20%28SERIES%2012%29&titleID=00010&

SOURCE: gunk in middle of agitator
the fabric softener spins out of the cup after the wash cycle when spinning the water out of clothes, then the washer fills back up for the rinse w/ your softener having been dispensed. is there a nut at the bottom of your agitator where you see the gunk? If so you can take the agitator out by removing the nut but be careful of the little parts that make the agitator agitate. Do not disturb these little parts if you don't know about them. Does the gunk smell like grease or a mechanics garage? If so chances are it is a lubricant and should not be removed replace the cap and your softener cup and continue enjoying your machine.

SOURCE: replacing dog agits
Should be a plastic insert that you have to turn counter clock wise till you can pull out. Then remove top section of agitator. then with a socket 9/16 deep socket remove the nut. When you remove nut the bolt may come with it thats ok, then you can remove agitator. good luck
