Remove the agitator and see if the noise goes away.  If it does, then replace the agitator dogs Part number: 80040

Thanks, It is within the motor area, not the agitator. I found a youtube that showed the malfunction but no answer as to what it was. It goes Click Click down in the motor area when the setting is on slow abd medium agitate thanks

  If it's not doing it in high speed agitation or in spin modes, then sounds like a faulty speed select switch.

If you have lost low or med speed on your motor than you can have motor pulsing. Motor starts on High speed and then cintrif switch throughs out to which ever speed is selected, if low or med is dead or open, motor will slow until cintrif switch resets at which time it again will start on high and the process starts all over again

So if either the slow or Med are out, it will go through the speeds until it reaches the selected speed (in this case low or medium) when set on either low or medium, and that is why it is surging and clicking in those speeds?? This would make sense as it does fine on high. So looks like a bad motor in that case... I will try the connections and check for burning at the plugs before replacing the motor!! Thank you!!! Great insight and obvious experience!! Brad.

It's not very common for the motors to fail in this manner, if you have a speed control selector switch I would look there first, (timer and speed selector switch problems are much more common).

  Agree with Willie. On this model, the motor switch does not select motor speed, it just redirects power back up to the timer after the motor starts. From the timer, power goes to the speed select switch and then to the motor winding based on speed selected by the user. I don't ever recall seeing or hearing of a Whirlpool direct drive machine with a bad motor winding. Not that it couldn't happen, but would be extremely rare and your saying it does it in medium and slow so two bad windings??? Timer doesn't select speed on this model either, except for drain which is high speed direct (bypasses speed switch), so if it's working fine in high speed and you switch it to medium or slow and it starts cutting on/off, then it's most likely the speed switch.

Easy enough to find out. Just ohm the windings. Have found wires broken between the motor switch plug and the windings. Have seen this also on the Amana 3 speed motors. Usually when the speed selection switch fails, it sends power to two windings at the same time causing high amp draw and cutting off on the motor overload, but not causing a pulsing of the motor
