To do this remove the top cap on the agitator (see picture below). There is an inner cap. Use a small screw driver to pry it out.
Once you have the inner cap out there is a 7/16" nut in the center of the assembly. Use a ratchet with a short extention and 7/16" socket to remove it.
You can now remove the top part of the agitator. Once removed look inside the top half for some tabs that lock the middle lower portion of the unit to the top. Use a screwdricver to push then to the side and allow the bottom to be removed.
You can now change the dogs and replace the unit on the main agitator.

Hello, thank you for your answer. I have a piece in the top of my agitator assembly that is not shown on the enclosed diagram, and it does not just pull out with plyers. It seems to be on top of what looks like the head of the bolt underneath. I would like to email 3 photos so you can see. It is hard to see the depth, but this is a cylindrical shaped piece, about 2 1/2" deep that fits inside, and as I said, it looks like the head of the bolt is underneath that. Please see photos and help! :) I can't attach the photos to this email form; do you have another email I can send the photos to get help?

Can you send me a picture of the parts you have removed, please?
Something is not right here. Nice pictures by the way. Nicly detailed and clear!
Nevermind. This is a diffrent configuration than the model I posted above. Here is a breakdown of the unit you have. Sorry about the mixup.
It does appear that something is jammed in the side of the agitator though. (see photo) It looks like pieces of #4 in the breakdown.
You need to remove these before you reassemble the unit.
Ok got it!
You need to find something that will turn this-
It is threaded onto the transmission shaft.
Mr.Bill (thanks for the info Bill) says that they use the motor clips to remove these. They are the clips that hold the pump to the motor . They can be accessed from the bottom by tipping the unit on its back. One of these and a pair of pliers work .
I was thinking you might be able to use a 1" wood chisel and a pair of channell lock (slip joint) pliers. Either will work.
Let me know if you have problems with it.
