That model number doesn't appear to be correct. Can you look at the model number again and try to resend it please?

OK so on this washer to remove or tighten the agitator, you just pull up on the top plastic cap on the top of the agitator and it pops off. You can use a flat head screwdriver to pry on it if needed for help. Once that cap is removed, there is a bolt down the center that you can use to tighten the agitator down to the transmission shaft if it's loose. You can also loosen and remove the bolt if you want to pull the agitator completely up and out if the bolt is tight and you want to get a look under the agitator to see if it' stripped out or something like that where the agitator would need to be replaced.
