Dear RH
Split the power cord outside the washer cabinet, and used amp clamp on the black wire. with the washer set to super plus for a full tank of water, the amp probe measured at most 8.6 and at least 8.0 amps during the spin cycle. it never reached 10 amps and never fell lower than 8.0. OK, or what do you think? thank you for your most valuable help by the way.

That is a safe current level for the motor and I assume now you have no more noise.
In my "stickey" I explain that the tranny nylon gear can be damaged by a high impact load like a load of sneakers with insufficient water. Maybe that is the reason your tranny failed.

Thank you, and I assume the washer is spinning up to full speed.
