Whirlpool Imperial series washer spin problem

I have aquired a whirlpool imperial series washer model LSN1000JQ1. It fills washes drains no problem but when it goes into spin it jerks a few times like it canīt keep up. After it does this a few times it will go up to full speed spin. Could the clutch be going or the trans going or the tube brakes grabbing when there not supposed to. I have included a video Of the machine in spin. It goes into spin around the 2:30 mark



any ideas.

Tilt washer back against wall and look under it. About 6nches up around cabinet see if there is a streak of oil. If there you need a gearcase top seal, clutch and drive coupler.

The bottom of the trans seams to be covered in oil. The middle on what looks like a shaft or bearing there is a yellow like oil that is fresh. On the rest of the trans is old oil that appears to have been on there. Nothing on the inside of the metal washing housing.

So I need Transmission P/N 3360629
Clutch P/N 285785
Motor Coupler P/N 285753A
Repair Manual P/N 4313896

Any gaskets or seals? Does the trans ship with oil in it or do I need to get that as well?

Gearcase comes with oil, can be rebuilt (google whirlpool gearcase repair) no gaskets or seals needed

Well I went ahead and ordered the parts. Had to wait for funds to become available.Also I want to paint the machine. The top is white but the rest is beige type color and stained. I want to paint it red but can't find red appliance paint. Would a oil based gloss spray paint work?

Don't know anything about paint but don't think spray paint would stick.

Ok it appears to work fine no issues during the wash spin. The rinse spin the tub seams to shake allot even if there's nothing in it. But right now after 1 load it appears to be fixed.
