Disconnect power then remove the two Phillips-head screws securing the lower left and right rear corners of the console to the washer top. Tilt the console back on the hinges that secure the top of the console to the washer back.
Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.
The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cI have a 2002 Whirpool - 4e2277c.jpg/>

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the caI have a 2002 Whirpool - 8557e5b.jpgthe tabs in the front and back of the base.
Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up the cabinet and set it aside.

What can be done to finalise the source of the fault is to disconnect the power of the unit. Now disconnect the motor from the control panel connecctions.
Checking hte voltage on the motor apply a voltage so as to simulate the drive, be careful when you do this and do not lett your hands in as the motor rotates. You can now hear/see the source of noise as the mtoro is engaged or disengaged.
If there is a geared drive to the spin cycle to increase the RPM then it is possible that the unit be taken out and overhauled , to be greased and set back.
If not this can be the start of the spin which can be a drive slipping.
Reccify and reconnect the motor connection back.

Did you checked the lid switch.In some cases the lid switch gets short and this causes the clicking noise.If the lid switch is faulty the spin cycle will not start.But if the lid switch is getting short then spin cycle will work but such clicking noise occurs.
But if the lid switch checked ok then the other possibility is motor coupler,in your case the coupler is replaced,the other possibility for such noise before spin cycle is problem in clutch or problem in transmission or transmission pulley.As you mentioned the noise comes before the clutch engages,but still check the transmission and transmission pulley.
If the spin basket is spinning back and fourth during agitation the sifter coil is bad. When the sifter coil is bad and the spin basket is turning during wash the bottom shipping brace will hit one another this will make a loud click each time the motor changes directions during wash.
