If you can do snatches without it hurting your wrist, then you have a major form problem on the clean...to put it simply.

Remember that the KB goes around the hand/arm on a clean, not OVER the hand (and subsequently crashing on the wrist/forearm).

Cleans are very difficult (compared to snatches, IMO). Practice putting the KB into the rack, helping with your other hand, then kicking it out (mostly down) to the "hang" position to learn the groove of the clean from the top down.
