My Kenmore 90 Series Washer used to click very loudly during spin cycle. The clicking has stopped, but now spins at full speed first, then goes to about half speed. Clothes come out still wet. I pulled the motor and gearcase out, and pulled them apart to check the rubber piece between them. It appears to be ok, as it's not broken at all. Is it still bad? Would that also attribute to the spinning at half speed?
Also, when I pulled off the agitator, I noticed small metal chunks as if something basically disintegrated. I don't see any wear or grinding evidence anywhere. Is there a metal washer that goes under there?
Thank you so much for your help!!

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete
and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in
excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement. Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the
shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or
damaged. If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
manofred, you either have something in your pump or the coupler is starting to break up. Tip the washer back and take a look. See if there is a bunch of black debris under the trans. If so, your coupler is failing. The pump will come off with 2 clips and 2 clamps. Check to see if something is in the impeller. Check the attachments....Catriver...post back.
