Speaking about couplings.  I bought some fsp couplings from an ebay source and noticed it said USA on the fsp label and Mexico on the coupling. Anybody know where these things are made?

I don't know if Whirlpool is really proud of their packaging being made in the USA or if they are trying to deceive the customer into thinking the parts inside are made in the USA.

I need to amend my comment made earlier. The fsp product was a lid switch not a coupling. USA on the fsp label, Mexico on the switch.

As the unit comes up to speed in spin, does it start getting louder and louder? Most likely your trans is binding up in spin and taking out the coupling.

Now 1985 change over sounds more right and 1985 is when I started in appliance repair and one of the first factory tech class that I remember attending was on the new neutral drain transmission.

 

They had a cutout transmission mounted on a display platform so the internal operations could be somewhat observed.

Could be multiply issues showing. If it were only one it would be fine but...
1. Neutral drain
2. Batch of bad part
3. Bad transmission
4. Gremlins

Is the coupling on, so that the shaft of the motor and trans are just barely peaking out from the coupling. If not that could pinch the rubber/nylon piece causing a slight bind.

I've ordered new FSP couplings and I'm waiting for them to install them. In the mean time, I put on a coupling half of the inferior design. So far I've done eight or so loads without any issues. Looks like it was just the inferior couplings that were failing. 

I guess on the bright side, I've performed a decent overhaul of the machine replacing the clutch, pump and agitator assembly, overhauling and cleaning the brake and transmission. When I get the FSP couplings installed I shouldn't have to worry about this machine for several more years. Doubt I'll get another fifteen years out of it, but anything is possible.

 

Thank you all for the helpful hints and suggestions. And special thanks to Eric (bairbank56) for a dose of reality by pointing out the now obvious issue with knock off replacement parts.
