Is there a rule or something about pronuncing "ed" /t/ in past tense of some irregular words such as "worked, walked, whoped, etc? Please explain.

The final –(e)d of this form is pronounced:
/t/ after unvoiced consonants except /t/: /kIkt, stɒpt, kɒft/
/d/ after voiced consonants except /d/, vowels and diphthongs: /hʌgd, lIvd, friːd, pleId/
/Id/ (or /əd/) after /t, d/: /wɒntId, wɒntǝd; niːd Id, niːdǝd/
