Direct Drive Washer Black Powder

What is that black powder or filings under my washer??

On a Whirlpool - KitchenAid - Inglis - Kenmore direct drive washer there is a motor coupler that will normally wear out. You might start to see the effects of the coupler coming apart on the floor.

This is a picture of an worn out motor coupler.
