I was replacing the clutch on my Whirlpool washer and when I went to tip the washer back up, this part fell out. I know the picture is awful so I'll try to describe...it looks like a bronze colored nail with a flat side to the shank (the cross section of the shank is D shaped), the pottom of the shank has a small hole (for a cotter pin maybe??), 2" long, 1/4" dia and the portion of the shank near the head has impact marks. I looks like this part reacts some type of shear load. Any idea where it came from? Thanks in advance.
