Question about Washing Machines
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.
If you have a 2 part agitator assembly (Fabric softener dispenser, top agitator and main agitator)
First, push down on the ring around the bottom of the fabric softener dispenser and lift it off the agitator.
Pry the top cap (a short screwdriver into the slots in the cap works) of the top agitator.
Looking into the center of the top agitator, you'll see a plastic piece with a 1/2" square hole. Using a 1/2" socket set extension, unscrew the piece carefully. You might have to hold the bottom agitator in place while you do this.
The top agitator pulls up.
You'll see a bolt and screw holding the bottom agitator on. Carefully unbolt this one and the entire bottom agitator will pull up.
