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!
