Question about Washing Machines
The fact of the matter is the spline on the drive shaft has most likely slightly corroded into the plastic agitator spline. Although the shaft is called stainless steel the grade is not 18/8 so it does contain some iron. This GROWING together might require s =special puller which I have made for myself in these situations. Otherwise if it is imperative that the agitator must be removed, then you will have to break it with difficulty because it is quite tough plastic.

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.

SOURCE: Agitator Removal
Most agitators also have an air gap cap underneath the fabric softener cap as well. This is to prevent water from rising inside the agitator and getting to the drum bearings. Look closely under the fabric softener cap to see if there is another cap that you might have to remove. You can usually use a small flat tip screwdriver to lift the cap off. You will need a socket (with extender) and ratchet to reach the mounting bolt. As you loosen the bolt, you will need to hold on to the base of the agitator at the same time to keep it from turning. Now, not knowing what your agitator looks like, it may or may not have this set up (just a thought for you try). If there is no mounting bolt of any kind as you say, the type of agitator you may have is held on by plastic grips that snap on to a mounting hub under the base. Unfortunately there is no easy way I know of besides lifting straight out. You may have to rock it side to side a little while pulling up to get the clips to release. Normally, the problem encountered with this type of agitator is the clips wear out and no longer grip and it keeps falling off. Why do you need to remove the agitator? Just wondering because you didn't mention any problems. Good luck to you. 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&

There is a 1/4" machine screw in a recessed hole close to the bottom of the agitator. Remove screw. Lift agitator off agitate shaft.
