Nash, your unit appears to be made by Whirlpool. (Kenmore doesn't manufacture anything, they purchase from major manufacturers and put the "kenmore" name on them) If, as I suspect, it is made by Whirlpool... the top transmission seal is failed allowing small amounts of water to enter the tranny. The water, being heavier than oil, will displace the oil through the top of the tranny... out through a "weep" hole. The weep hole is not designed to allow fluid to escape, it's designed to allow air to enter and exit the transmission housing, compensating for the heat expansion and contraction of the lubricant that should be contained within. Regardless of the manufacturer, you have a main drive system failure on your hands. It'll only get worse from here. Most manufacturers put a 5 year warranty on their drive-trains, you should call them immediately. If it's over 5 years old, it's a very expensive repair.

Check your hoses mostly the small hose going from the side of the tub to the water switch these come off a lot. you need to look and see if the seal is leaking from the center of the tub you do this by putting water in the tub and just looking around the bottom of the tub and transmission

Sorry, this could be bad. The transmission might have blown a seal. It's a big job to fix, if this is the problem. It might be time to consider replacing the machine.
