Loose agitator in washing machine

Top loading washing machine (Pope: an Australian brand no longer in production) has developed a loose agitator. It floats up as the machine fills with water and I cannot see any obvious way to make it stay down where it belongs so it can wash the clothes.
The instruction book says I should be able to remove the agitator with a 10mm socket and extension arm, but I can neither see a nut at the bottom of the well (too narrow to shine a light and see at the same time) nor feel one when I probe with a socket on the arm. I certainly can't get the socket head to fit onto anything.
An exploded diagram would probably help – at least I would know what I am trying to deal with – but I can't locate one.
Ideally I would like to see an exploded diagram, but as this is probably not available would be grateful for any other advice on offer!

Need to remove agitator to remove lodged medallion

Remove the agitator top cap, and unscrew the mounting bolt part way. Pull up on the agitator by both sides of the rim, then finish removing the bolt after the device is loose. (Keeps you from smacking your face when the agitator comes loose.) Hope this helps.
