Leaking at drum where drive shaft enters

My Amana Super Capacity Plus Washing machine is 10 or so years old. It has recently begun leaking where the drive shaft enters the drum, and the water is not spinning out completely during the spin cycle. Is it time for a new machine, or can I fix this myself? Any suggestions?

    Thanks Doc. That's what I was afraid of. Any chance its a seal or a gasket that's blown? I think the spin cycle issue is related to the water on the belt due to the leak. I saw some smoke today when I opened it up. I think it's the alternator/ agitator. I'm guessing any fix would only be temporary. We're shopping for a new washer now. I'm hearing good things about front loading washers. What's your take?

I have a whirlpool ultimate heavy duty super capacity plus an over loaded it an the cold water hose is leaking. Is that normal?


Overload is too many clothes. So that is a choice to be made, and not normal for the machine. It isn't made for overload and
does not like that situation. Cold water hose leaking is not normal.
How old is it? Most plumbers appliance installers recommend changing the hot and cold hose every five years. It's cheap insurance against a "flood" if one or both break.

Whirlpool Super Capacity Plus washer drum removal


What kind of residue? Grease? Sometimes a buildup of fabric softener will look like grease. If so, removing the agitator and inspecting it will show a buildup of fabric softener on underside. Rinse with hot water to remove. If you need to remove the inner drum, you will need a special tool for that. Try a local appliance parts business. They might loan or rent one, or sell you one. No filter to clean though. Grease should not be present as there is only the shaft of the transmission coming through a seal into the outer tub. Not likely to have grease migrate into tub. Fabric softener will be present on outer tub as well. Remove with hot water and plastic dish scrubber. Rinse and re-assemble washer.

Amana top loading super capacity LWD35AW leaking


Hello horshomom
Welcome


You said, You just found out my machine is leaking underneath somewhere and you haven't taken it apart yet. Any suggestions or ideas?

How old is the machine?
How much water leaks and when?

It usually is a leak in or around the drain hose.
I've seen a clamp vibrate loose near the pump.

You should be able to find it!

Let me know. Huuum
