I thought the two parts would snap/connect together. They don't. Put the agitator on upside down over the "dogs" and their connector. Holding that together put the top agitator over the bottom. Carefully put over the metal connector inside the washer and connect the bult. The bult is what holds the pieces together.
To take apart initially I had to use a socket set with a long extension and a pipe over the racket handle to get enough torque to loosen the bult

To disassemble, you need to destroy the tabs that are holding the translucent thing to the four post on top of the bottom part. This of course means that the translucent thing needs to be replaced too. I hammered the screwdriver into the tabs until they gave way. The rest of teh parts come out undamaged.
(if you have snips with really long handles, that would be a better tool).

Had same problem with my washer. Check to see if there are little plastic tags holding top/bottom of agitator. after replacing dogs just ensure that you realign with tags so they do not break off.

If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.
See the part "Dog, agitator "
Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with a 1/2" square drive.
Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator should turn in one direction only.
Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.
Also see the following illustrated description of the above.
