On that model, the agitator (number 300 below) is just pressure fit over the coupling (number 310) and is designed to pull off with a sharp lift upward. Sometimes they can be hard to get off, so be persistent.

WATCH YOUR FACE WHEN YOU PULL THE AGITATOR OUT, THEY TEND TO SNAP OFF AND CAN EASILY HIT YOUR FACE WITH THE UPWARD JERKING MOTION!

We tried what Kelly said to try but there is a clear cover that we can't get off. It is there as soon as we take the softener cup off. There is nothing to grab so we can't get to the bolt.

You don't take any bolts off, the agitator simply pulls off the coupling. It is pressure fit only.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

All you have to do is grab the bottom of the agitator and lift sharply up. NO BOLT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED.
