The (-ed) ending of regular past forms has  three  sound realizations: [-d]  [-t]  [-id], depending on the sounds just before it.

phonemes

• If the verb ends in a voiced phoneme, the ‘-ed’ ending sounds like [-d] 

• If the verb ends in a voiceless consonant (i.e.: no vibration of the vocal chords), then the ‘-ed’ ending becomes  [-t]  

• Neither [-t]  nor  [-d]  can be added to verbs ending in ‘-t’ or ‘-d’: it wouldn’t be perceptible. What we do, we add an extra syllable [-id] . This only happens with verbs ending in ‘-t’ (“waited) or ‘-d’ (“needed)

Θ  All the past forms that follow are one-syllable words. Notice that by mispronouncing these endings, you are causing serious trouble to the listener. You may be saying something like:
 
“Lock it” instead of  ‘locked’   [lɒkt]
“Stop it” rather than  ‘stopped”  [stɒpt]
“Pass it” instead of  ‘passed’   [past]
“Push it” rather than  ‘pushed’  [pu∫t]
“Stuff it” instead of ‘stuffed’   [stʌft]
“Watch it” rather than  ‘watched’   [wɔt∫t]
