Pulled off fabric softener cup and beneath that is a 7/16" bolt. Removed that and changed the cogs. Super easy.

Followed instructions on website, replaced agitator dogs, flawless repair and very easy. Works like new
Followed the simple instructions on youtube, searching for "kenmore upper agitator doesn't work." There are a number of videos there. Find the notch on agitator cover and pry off the cover using a flat screw driver. Remove the nut in the center of the agitator using the 7/16 socket with extension. Remove upper agitator (mine came off easily but some may require removing the entire agitator, then pulling off the upper agitator). Remove assembly from inside and replace the dogs. Reassemble.
seems like the agitator is made together couldn't get it apart.it has four small tabs at the base where the cogs go the tabs have to be broken of to get to the cogs.no videos on how to repair this style of agitator
My washer is operational now. Thanks
Removed fabric softener cover, inner cover and removed screw and washer. Replaced cogs, changed the inner seal ring and changed out screw and washer. Put it all back together and done. This is the 2nd time I've had to replace cogs since I've had the washer.
Remove cap. Use socket to remove retaining bolt. Remove cogs holder. Use screw driver to remove retaining ring. Replace cogs. Reverse for installation.
Took detergent dispenser off..removed bolt and replaced parts..put back together
I looked at the pictures on the order form and thought I could guess what was damaged then I saw the trouble shooting section and it said that it could be two parts, I saw the price and ordered both. I watched the video on how to replace the parts I purchased, it only took me 30 minutes to replace both. My wife was so impressed she cleaned up after me and after I did a trial run and gave the OK she started washing my clothes. Thanks for making the video. Jay
After disconnecting hoses, drain pipe and plug and bungee cording them to top panel, I used 2 wheeler to pull it out into work space. This model did not have the bolt you see in the videos under the cap. It had a plastic retainer with a spring. It took the 1/2" drive adapter to remove the retainer. The cog assembly pulled right out. It had a plastic ring that was easy to pull up to release the cogs. That took only 15 minutes to fix. The DIRECT DRIVE coupling took longer because I don't do this for a living. The end trim on the panel comes off by prying the bottom by pulling it straight out toward you with your fingers or a small screwdriver then pull them out and up to take them off. Remove two screws at the bottom ends of the panel and pull it out and rotate it up. The rest is like in the U tube videos..
