I checked the the coupler and its fine. although it wasn't attached to the motor. it is very loose on the motor.  It has a loud gear sound underneath by the motor. i'm trying not to call a service repairman. any help will be greatful.

Hi ellisel,

Could you post the model number of your washer.
The model number is located on the model/serial number tag that can be found on the washer.

Check picture below for possible model number tag locations.
