Do you have an automatic oiler on machine?
If so, drain the oil, unscrew the reservoir plug and wrap threads with teflon tape.

The problem could come from the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder. The cause could be external or internal.

First check the fluid level in the reservoir. The reservoir could be independent of the brake system or using the same.

If the level is too low, air may have entered in the line and the hydraulic compression is affected. So first, adjust the level in the reservoir using recommended oil. (normally brake oil is ok).

Check for any oil leak starting from the clutch pedal following hydraulic circuit up to the transmission.
Your vehicule should have two clutch cylinders: the master and the slave.
The master cylinder is operated by your clutch pedal, it's located under the dash, fixed to the firewall and connected to the hydraulic line on the other side of the firewall. Check for any leak on the carpet, under the carpet and near the hydraulic connection. Pumping the pedal making that verification could help to detect leak. Then follow the hydraulic line going to the slave cylinder attached to the transmission making a visual inspection for leaks.
If for any reason some air entered the circuit, the line could be purged from air bleeding the slave cyclinder as you do bleeding brake component.
If there is no air, no leak detected then it's probably an internal problem that you can't see. Remove the cap from the reservoir, depress the pedal. If the oil is moving in the reservoir then the master slave is probably bad otherwise I would suspect the slave.

Some other Gurus could complement or correct my saying.
Hope it will help

Gearcase is leaking oil


What brand??? Whirlpool ,kenmores leak through the front shaft by coulpling. It will still run with low oil, it may get oil on clutch wich can make it slow spin.
Ge's old and new leak oil and can run for a long time with no oil. They will get loud and scize up after awile. Old maytags leak and keep on running. New ones drop dead.
Run yours till it dies, replace the trans with a new one or buy a new washer. There is no fix for any leaks, just replace transmission or washer.

Their is an oil leak onto the floor under our washer. What is this and how can it be fixed?


You will need to replace the transmission to fix the oil leak.
Really not worth the repair tho.

Machine is usually very noisy ( like it was out of balance, but isnt) 90 percent time very noisy in the final expell of water, also some oil on the floor under center of machine ? this is a top load...


oil on the floor means your gear box is leaking
if it has been leaking. if it has been leaking for a while, it may have done major damage,and would be cheeper to replace the machine second hand than to fix.
if noise is happening while you are pumping , it may have a bra under wire or small coin in the water pump.
if it is sounding like it is out of balance it may have a support or spring broken or unhooked
as the tub is usually suspended by springs

Air Conditioner 3 in 1 danby SPAC12030 leaking water on the floor. No water in right side compartiment also no water in the back reservoir. Water leak from right side of the machine. From the right side...


I had that problem last year. When I took it apart I found that the drainage hoses that lead to the reservoirs were plugged with dust build up. I clean out the hoses as well as the rest of the insides. I have since placed the entire unit inside a shallow (under bed) style rubermaid tote and have not had any more water leaking. Hope that helps you.

Washing machine leaking oil


your washer has a transmission and this is what is probably leaking. You might simply need a new seal or the a new transmission. You need a good handyman or contact a repairman.

Karcher pressure washer leaking oil


Usually electric pressure washers only have oil on the pump, so its very likely that you will find the problem there. I'd say check all the pump seals and if that doesnt solve the problem, you can check to see if all bolts are tight when you close the pump back.
If by any chance you are looking for a new machine and/or parts for your machine, log in to www.roncoshop.com where you will be able to find pretty much anything for your preassure washer.

Possibly, if it is leaking from the bottom only, and if you have a Domus Due model, you might just need a new water reservoir as the water reservoirs are a different system than all of the other briel machines and a new reservoir will usually fix the problem of leaking on the bottom in the Domus Due machines. Something with the seal on the reservoir.
You can order just a water reservoir by contacting the service center at:

If your machine is leaking over the filter handle, brew head etc, that could be the coffee oils have built up in the Brew Head Screen and/or filter basket itself. For that, remove the Brew Head Screen and soak along with the Filter Basket in a coffee oil remover (not descaler) you can get the Cafiza powder at www.urnex.com or any other brand and then use a brush to clean it after soaking. If you have the Briel filter basket with a screw in the middle, please remove the screw and clean in there as it tends to get clogged. Then just be sure not to screw it too tight again as this can cause leaking.
I hope the info was helpful.
