Okay, so it is under warranty, that is good. The issue you are having is with the gear case, number 5 in the diagram at the link below.

I presume you are not wanting to assume the cost of repairing this yourself, correct?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Correct and I prefer to have repair man come to my location verus we take washer into shop. That is not an option at this point.

Okay, Just Answer is a site that connects consumers with experts to provide online help, so we don't have technicians, you would need to contact Whirlpool or Lowe's to schedule service.

I can get you contact information for Whirlpool, if you'd like.
