Now you need to pull upward firmly but hard. there are small splines holding the agitator in position. carefull if the agitator has two parts to it as there are usually plastic (dogs)inside which could spring loose if you are not careful.

Hi s cowdroy, I will try to help you out. You have to remove the spool from the head. There are different ways this is done depending on the brand. At the bottom you will see different systems, that you either turn or just pull out. You will have to try just pulling or turning and also some might have left hand threads. As you remove the spool remember how everything goes back in. When you look at the bottom of the spool, different brands have different ways of attaching the cutting cord. One will have an eyelet, another will have holes that the cord fits snugly, etc. Some manufacturers use tape, and that is what I use on every machine I restring. I use packing tape, I wrap it around the cord and then tape it to the bottom of the spool. On the spool will be indicated the way to wrap the cord. When wrapping the cord do it in neat rows to prevent tangling that you will have to clear all the time. Something else to prevent tangling, is to wrap the same way you unwrap it, in other words put the spool and the roll of new cord end to end, and as you roll it on the spool you unroll it from the new roll. I hope you understand what I mean. Do not put too much cord on the spool, leave about 1/4" from top. To install the spool make sure it is the same way you took it out. Insert the cord through the eyelet of the head and install the spool in the same way it came out. Hope this is helpful. All the best and good luck. Denis.
you must first remove the agitater,then remove the inner tube,you'll need a spaner wrench,you now can see the tub seal,how you need to remove the 3 bolts around the bottom of the outer tub,now you can remove the outer tub and replace the tub seal,or use some 3m gasket seal,up to you,you can get a new tub seal on line for $10,let me know how you do-mike
withoout asking why , heres how to remove the inner tub, simple enough. theres abolt in the top of the agitator,(pop the little cover with a screwdriver). the agitater pops off, insert a screw driver under the maintop perhaps 3 inches in from both sides and pop the clips the main top leans back. Unsnap the white cover from around the outer tub and lastly there will be (2)) 1/2inch screws screwed into asolid block at bottom of agitator, thay are locking the inner tub to the transmission shaft. note the flat spot on the transmission whish the block is resting youll need to reinstall it at same point
