In 08 my grandparents gave us this set of 98 Whirlpool washer and dryer. So far over the years I've replaced the coupler and water inlet. It works but makes a terrible racket on spin, confident it's the clutch. The dryer works ok but maybe need to check the element as it doesn't seem to dry as good, but maybe that's the washer not spinning as it should. I can get a clutch for less than $10 and doesn't difficult, a new set of Whirlpools are over $1k. The other factor is the wife is grossed out by how the tub looks, it does look nasty. I might be able to get the pressure washer to it. I'm not worried about it but married guys you know how that goes. What would be forum consensus be in this scenario?
