Question about Washing Machines
I need to replace the dog ears in the agitator but can't figure out how to remove that assembly which is over the bolt.
See parts blowup at following link: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/displaySubComponentFullSize.action?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fcontent.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fP0112199-00004.png
On my Kenmore 110.28922790 Washer, after removing the cap on the agitator, only the top of the rod was visible. The plastic cup over the rod has a square insert which my 5/8 in. flat wood drill bit fit into. Turned it counter clockwise and unscrewed and removed the plactic cup. Then the cam assembly with the wornout dog ears lifted out. The bolt did not need to be replaced to replace the dog ears.

Tips for a great answer:
1 First you must determine the brand of washing machine you have.
Maytag and Admiral washers are very similar to remove. General Electric, (GE) is different, To remove a GE agitator simply pull upwards very hard, GE agitators snap on. Be careful not to pop it into your mouth, that really hurts.
