Whirlpool Washer Making Clicking Noise

It may also help if you orient the washer so that the front is facing east, toward Mecca. But this is just the opinion of an old Mujahideen warrior who spends his days adrift in the glow of the poppy plant while milking his male yaks.

With the machine leaned back against a wall turn the brake cam to release the brake and push the brake/basket drive tube assembly back up all the way into the brake drum. You may need someone to help, while you release the brake have them lift the spin basket up as high as it will go then let go of the brake release cam. With the brake locked the brake/basket drive tube will hold the spin basket up where it belongs and the transmission will install as easy as pie.

Our machine (22722100) has developed a tick during the agitate cycle. I've taken the cabinet open, and the sound is coming from the motor itself. There is a centrifigal switch assembly inside the motor that appears to rotate 20-30 degrees on the motor shaft and seems to be the source of the noise. With the motor removed and running on the ground (no load), the motor runs very briefly, every few seconds.
Is it normal for this switch to rotate like this?

I've noticed that the cycle select switch doesn't seem to make much difference, 'normal', 'gentle', or 'delicate' all seem to agitate the same. Also, I notice the lights on the same circuit pulse in time to the agitation, like the motor is drawing excessive current, or causing power surge.
Anyone else have info or experience with this?

I pulled the shell, and then the motor, and found the outer plastic part of the coupler split in two.
Literally, 10 minutes from start of job to removal, and hopefully 10 on the way back together. Just need to get the part now.
Thanks for the great pointers and pics. Well worth the $5 subscription fee!
