Question about Kenmore 26642 Top Load Washer
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Also see the Whirlpool / Kenmore PDF on installation and maintenance of top load direct drive washers. See the section discussing the tub brake.
Also see the following description of how to remove the cabinet, agitator, motor, drum and drive tube assembly with the brake.
Since the clicking appears to be connected to the brake operations I'd pull the drive tube / brake and inspect the springs / shoes for wear or damage.
