I have scoured the Net, read everything I can find and then found someone who refered to this post
on how to get the two pieces of the agitator apart once out of the washer. The concensus is to place on the ground, step on botton with 2 feet, and pull up. Even following the picture tutorial on this site. I have tried and tried this along with two burly maintenance men from my work and none of us can get this sucker apart. This is a whirlpool about 10 years old and the dogs look just like the replacement ones I got, but I can't get to them to replace. Was this another model with some trick to release it? I know you must be thinking I'm just not pulling hard enough, but anymore pulling and I'll have an break my spine. Looking down in to the top it appears to maybe be a yellow gear piece down inside the gear ring. It looks like it had 4 little tabs that were melted? Could that be the issue? I can take a picture if someone thinks it could help. Has anyone else run into this? The model on a barcode said it was a LSN1000JQ
