Whirlpool washer 8525079 has 2 problems. First, with heavier loads the auger barely moves. Probably the dogs from what I'm reading. Second, during spin cycle, it sometimes will spin and sometimes won't....


I found replacement agitator dogs at a local appliance parts store. Pretty simple fix for the worn-out dogs. The parts came with installation instructions.
If the drum won't turn by hand, then it's probably a stuck drum brake just above the transmission. You can fix it by putting a little dab of silicone grease on the inner surface of the cup-shaped brake drum, and then working the drum back and forth until the grease comes in contact with the brake shoes. You can do this from the bottom of the machine without removing any panel - just tip it over on its back.

Loud in spin cycle/throws oil


If the pulley wobbles, it sounds like a bad bearing, and that could account for the oil/grease. One more thing you might check, mine acted bad in the spin cycle, but mine was the leveling spring at the bottom of the drum. The way to tell from the top is if the drum tends to lean forward instead of being centered when sitting. Good luck.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It sounds like it is your spin bearings. It would explain the grease and the noise also. The spin bearings have to do with the spinning of the washer. Usually, if there are loud noises associated with the washer, it is either the motor drive or the spin bearing.

Grease /oil spots on clothes coming from washer


Hello,
This sounds like the drum bearings are starting to wear and allowing grease to infiltrate through the inner seal.Does it sound noisy on the spin cycle.

Oil is spewing into the wash tub during the spin


This may be a busted tub seal, but is usually caused by the outer plastic tub retaining grease and debris from previous loads. I would try running a hot water only wash cycle at full water capacity and adding a strong degreaser. This should emulsify any left over grease while also washing out the outer tub. If the problem persists, you may need to repeat the procedure. Remember that your washing machine transmission is located below the drum and tub assembly and is full of oil, but that oil simply cannot travel uphill.

LG Washer makes LOUD noise when spinning


The main seal is leaking on the drum bearing hence the splatter of soap softened grease The water from the drum is coming through the seal and into the bearing and this is washing the bearing clean of grease. No option than to get it replaced with a new drum bearing kit , Sorry !!

You could replace the snubber ring and springs,, if you love the machine, and make sure no grease is leaking. It's a lot of labor. These are not the real Maytags of the past.
