The reason I asked where you bought it from was because lots of DIY'ers have purchased the $8.95 clutch from Amazon and found out that they only last about 2-3 loads before they fail. I'm not trying to drum up business for Appliancepartspros. I'm trying to help you fix your washer. If your clutch came in a sealed bag with the Whirlpool FSP label on it, then you got a genuine Whirlpool part. If that is the case, I can continue to try and help you if you like.
