Agitator is not turning well. The basket spins fine. I took out the agitator and the shaft turns but I can hold it so it doesn't move at the same time the basket is spinning. There is also a clicking, grinding noise. Is this most likely transmission, clutch or drive tube problem?

I can not get my drum off of the drive block. I have removed the nut with the spanner wrench and removed the gear box so there is nothing but corrosion and a snug fit to keep it in. I am currently soaking it with lube/penetrating oil. Any thoughts? Thanks Dana

The washer is basically working fine, but... on occasion... makes a clicking noise when in wash cycle (agitator looks like it's slipping a bit, but still turning) and also in the spin cycle (drum is spinning, but not as smoothly and quickly as it should be). Also, my fluorescent lights in the room flicker in unison with the clicking. At the completion of an entire wash cycle, there is a light electrical smell, almost as if something electrical was getting a little hot. Any idea what the offending part(s) may be? Thanks!

Originally, my Whirlpool was not agitating. I replaced the Motor Coupler and Agitator Dogs and reassembled the machine. As I ran a test cycle, the washer filled correctly, agitated correctly, but encountered a new problem when spin cycle started. There is a loud clicking noise, not quite grinding, but clearly metal "slipping" type of sound. The machine will spin with no problem, but as speed increases, the sound intensifies. I pulled off the agitator to watch the spin cycle and see if I could identify the problem. I could see the metal rod, where bolt is inserted to hold agitator in place, "slipping" (not spinning at same speed as drum). Is this a clutch issue? A washer drive block issue? Maybe something else? One last bit of info, for years, the machine has leaked a orange/red substance that I assume is grease (not a black oil). Wondering if I've finally run out of something and this is what's causing the metal clicking / slipping sound? Any thoughts? Shawn

My Whirlpool Gold washing machine is making a loud clanking noise during the spin cycle. It gets louder as it goes through the cycle; this is a consistent ping, sounding like a hammer hitting the drum. I just replaced the washer drive block and spanner nut. I also replaced the clutch assembly kit prior to that. Both parts didn't look worn, however I still replaced them and the sound remains. QUESTION: What part needs to replaced when the washing machine makes this noise? The sound still remai

What are the SYMPTOMS which would require you to replace the "Drive Block"? I have a machine that washed fine. But when it started the Spin Cycle, it just runs with a slight clicking sound, but does not spin. I pulled the motor and transmission out. The clutch looks fine with no apparent wear or damage. The Coupler looks new also. Hand turning the clutch in one direction, I get agitation with the shaft. Turning the opposite direction I get nothing. I need an education in HOW the spin cycle works and what engages the tub. I'm guessing a reversed motor does it, but I'm not sure where this engages the tub and causes it to spin. What TESTS can I run to help IDENTIFY the problem ... and why it does not spin? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Three weeks ago the washer was not spinning the water out of the clothes. I ordered and replaced the clutch. It worked one week with no problem. Now it makes a machine gun sound on the spin cycle. Even after I replaced the drive block. Can you help me?
