The Agitator should be two assemblies. You pull the top off, and the main part will have a cap, that you remove and then there should be a nut in there, that you loosen to pull that assembly off the transmission shaft.

There are some units, that the agitator is actually two sections, which you can remove the top section, when you have a larger load, that is the part that you are stating is loose. Here is the Care & Use book for your model, if you do not have it around http://products.geappliances.com/Mar...e=49-90144.pdf

Usually stuff like fabric softener will cause it to stick. A screw driver will pop it, or a butter knife. Pouring boiling hot water over it, helps to allow you to pop it off.
