Well got the parts and put them in. Put the washer back together to test run and it spins but there is  loud noise like it's missing the gears or not quite lined up right. Hubby is trying to remove the agitator shaft. would that be the culprit? if so how does the shaft come out? Is it pressed in or what? please help before the washer gets thrown out in to the yard!!!! :(

To remove the shaft you drop the tranny from the bottom. But their ain't no need to remove it. Even if the main drive gear inside needs to be replaced you still ain't gotta remove the shaft.
You will have to remove the tranny to inspect it tough.

Double check the coupler installation. If both plastic pieces are not flush with their respective shaft a noise can occur.
