Re: Washing machine

Deatsy, my advice would to buy a new washer. These GE's transmissions are not fun to replace. Taking the age in consideration the job could be compounded by rusting or corroded parts. Get a Whirlpool or Kenmore direct drive and it should give you years of service at a reasonable price. Information on the price of the transmission can be found here: Catriver, post back.

Grease blobs appear in wash, Maytag washer A211. How do I fix?

Searched for the model on the web and didn't find it. I am assuming that it is an older top load model. Front loaders I don't know about.

Is the grease appearing just in the drum or is there some on the floor underneath. Either way I would say you need to replace the transmission. If you have an old 12-15 yrs washer I would get a new one. The replacement trannys only last a couple of years at best and aren't worth the money to replace $200-300 if your machine is ready to **** out. The only places on a washer that have grease are the clothes you're washing and the transmission. The tranny will mostly leak onto the floor but can sometimes get into the drum.

Oil leak in washing machine

Sounds like the transmission is leaking. These transmission don't need to be full of oil to function. But, if it's leaking a lot, like tablespoons, it should be checked. It's not the end of the line. Just may need a service call if it's a plentiful leak.

Washing machine is leaking from the bottom the washer is a whirlpool model LSR7233D

Check the pump, it's right up in front after you get the cover off. This unit is about 15-18 years old. The pump housing is plastic and eventually begins to leak around the input shaft. They're relatively cheap, about $30, and can give you another couple of years out of the machine if you want to try to fix it.While you're in there you might want to inspect/swap-out the flexible coupling betewen the motor and transmission. That's about $25 and it's pretty easy if you're handy.

Hotpoint washer top loading has oil dripping on the floor

The only place oil can be coming from is the transmission. If left as is, leaking oil will eventually result in full transmission failure. Yes, you can replace the transmission, but the repair is costly and moderately difficult. I'd save the expense and put the money toward a new machine. Please don't bother rating this solution as anything but a FixYa will drop my rating.

Peace BeeSuit,

Happy to be of assistance,

You asked:
Your, AEG 6200 Digitronic washing machine is leaking from the front door seal down the front and onto the floor.
Is this a common problem and can it be fixed?
- for example by replacing the opening rubber seal?

Yes I believe that replacing the rubber seal is usually the answer.

How old is the unit? And is the washer working well other wise?
Is it draining and not smelling like mold in side?
Some times in an old machine the pump does not completely dran out and it could smell like moldy water! Then if it's aged. I would consider not fixing both of these to problems in a washer 10 years or older not to put good money in to bad!
But if the leak is the only problem, go for the seal!
Happy to of assisted and made a different s in your life!
Bless you,

Please give me a good rating for my sound advice before you sigan off.
Thank You
