Check your coupling, sounds like it may be in the process of breaking up. On the way in check to make sure nothing is caught in the pump or drain hoses.

Here is a video which will show you how.

Default Checked Coupler

Okay I've checked the coupler. Seems okay and doesn't look worn. I've also checked for a blocked drain. Nothing there either. Any other suggestions?
I can rotate the drum by rotating the clutch by hand clockwise. Rotating the clutch counter clockwise, the clutch will turn about a quarter turn then stop.

You may have brakes which are hanging up. Check Richappy's sticky on direct drive brakes and take out the transmission and brake tube and see if you have any problems.

Default Check the brake

Thanks again for your reply. I'll check the brakes.

Have you ever heard of the motor start switch causing the clicking problem? I've noticed the contact arm on the switch doesn't seem to slide on the contact wheel smoothly, rather it jumps and coincides with the speed of the clicking.

I haven't heard of that, and I think you will find your problem with the clutch or the brakes, and let us know how what you find out

Default The Brakes

Yep, you're right. It's the brakes dragging. The clicking sound was from the motor switch arm chattering against the wheel it rides on. The motor was jerking due to the brakes binding.
Thanks again for your help. New brakes and it's working fine.

Great, glad you got it fixed, and some credit has to go to Richappy. Thanks for the update.
