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?

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.
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.
Replace water pump. Common problem. Unscrew the control panel ,two screws on each end. Flip control panel over and unsnap gold brackets from base to the back. Lift up housing and disconnect lid switch, remove housing. The water pump is in the front lower that has two hoses , disconnect hoses and unsnap pump. My sister fixed hers in about 25 minutes.
