My whirlpool washer just started making a loud "clacking" noise when it starts the spin cycle... repetitive sound and it does not actually spin any more. Otherwise it works. Do you think this is the motor coupling or would you suggest I start with other repair options? thanks

Cathie for Model Number LSR844LQ0

ANSWER Cathie, The motor coupling 285753A may be the issue, there could be a bent or broken tab on the coupler making noise and not driving the input shaft. But the issue is most likely in the Clutch assembly 285785 The mounting tabs may be damaged or one of the engagement pawls worn out and not engaging the gears properly to spin the wash tub.
