second  of these washers in as many days.really loud clicking in spin after 90-120 seconds.tilted washer back a bit and stuck my phone under to record and looks like the synch motor attached to drive system slightly disengages during spin,causing the plastic teeth of cam/clutch to bang into each other.is it likely the spring is weak? ordering the motor and that assy. anyone run into this ?

Is the drive pulley tight? If not it causes the splutch to "grind". I have had many problems with that drive pulley nut backing off.

Its Whirlpools Virtical Modular Washer.  I actually really like these machines. Sorry i couldnt help more. The only thing i could think of would be the splutch and check to make sure that the tub is tight and in the correct location. (unlike the old whirlpools they have to be in a certain spot). Good Luck. Keep me posted on what you find.

Did a little more research. May be a bad transmission. Maybe these washers are not as good as i had hoped. lol.

i thought the trans was ok,washed normal .spin made no noise initially but after about 90 sec. very loud clicking noise,thats when i saw the gears on the splutch seperating,looks like a spring holds gears engaged when the synch motor slides the bottom gear over.
