Question about GE WBSE2090A Top Load Washer
I'm not sure if it's happening in the wash or the rinse cycle or when the water is on cold or hot. The oil is coming from inside, underneath the agitator in the bottom of the clothes barrel (drum). Also, when you open the lid when the cycle is finished, you can smell an odor of old oil. Where is the oil coming from and is it an easy fix or it time to get a new machine?
Initially and based on your description, one strong possibility is that the seal on the bottom of the drum is faulty. This seal acts as a cover for the bearing underneath. Although this is repairable, most techs would not go through the trouble of replacing the bearing alone since it is force fit into the drum. The normal procedure is the replacement of the entire drum assembly, rather expensive. Due to this your posted comment of considering purchase of a new unit may have more merit. Depending on the design, in some other versions, rather than the bearing, it could be the differential.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
