Seal a round shaft of transmission leaking what oil does the transmission require


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washer.

See the following Whirl[pool parts list for their commercial washers although the consumer models use the same transmission and parts.

The part you need is probably the 3349985 Seal, Gearcase
Cover, a relatively cheap part.

I've found that basic 80-90 weight non-detergent gear oil ( available at auto parts stores) seems to work well. It's certainly less expensive than the gearcase oil from Sears.

NEED TO KNOW THE TYPE OIL IN THE TRANSMISSION OF WASHER


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+110.26912691

You'll see part numbers and prices for oil.

When we had to tear out transmission apart (3 times) we did some research and found that basic 80-90 weight non-detergent gear oil (available much cheaper than Sears oil at most auto parts stores) works for these transmissions.

How to put oil back into the Karcher water pump


You need to remove the pump and sit it brass side up before removing the bolts holding the brass to the aluminum part (you have to do it that way so the oil doesn't spill out.) CAUTION: there is some spring tension on the brass head.

Take the brass head off and set to the side on a rag or in a bucket. Dump out whatever oil is in the oil side, making sure not to drop the swash plate or bearing (the pieces sitting in the oil). Fill the oil end with aproximatly 4.5 ounces of Karcher pump oil, (or just 20w 50 weight non-detergent oil). Put the brass head back on and tighten bolts. Put the pump back on the machine.

If this helps please rate.

Stack washer/dryer spilled water on floor


Sounds like you need a pressure switch, before you go and buy one, take front panel off and blow into little thin clear hose to see if the is a blockage

Model# 110-503110/ Sears Washing machine, Ser.# 4045 Need to know what type and weight of oil to use in the gear box.


From everything I've read, top load, direct drive Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a 80-90 weight non-detergent gear oil.

Most likely non detergent since some of the parts in the gearcase are plastic.

Following is the Whirlpool service manual for these washers that might help.

This Kenmore Elite Top Load Washing machine has


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

This gets a little tricky.

It sounds as if, based upon the weight in the tub being reduced, the noise gets less. Something is pressing on something else due to the weight.

If you look at the gearcase parts section of the Sears site, you'll see parts called the agitate gear and agitate cam.

If the agitate cam wears (it's two plastic pieces) when the transmission moves to the spin cycle, the cam is supposed to lift the gear above it.

If it doesn't lift the gear high enough, you'll hear loud gear noise. This may lessen as the washer pumps water out and there is less weight on the spring.

We had the same problem with a washer and found that by replacing the cams, the noise went away.

Please see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase


Assuming that you know how to remove the cabinet, agitator (you don't need to remove the tub), pump, motor and transmission the agitator cam and follower use the same whirlpool part number 62580/01. This is a plastic set used to raise the agitate gear on the shaft.

I had the same problem with gear grinding and this solved it.

Pull the transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (15 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.

Remove the transmission cover.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

NO SPIN


Normally on a top loader such as yours, these symptoms are an indication of a broken motor coupling. The coupling is located just behind the drive motor and couples to the gearcase (or transmission). The oil you mentioned may be coming from the gearcase. They can leak at times. This may be a sign the gearcase is beginning to fail, or....maybe not. I would clean up the oil and replace the motor coupling, first. Click on the following link for step-by-step instructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385250-replacing_motor_coupling_kenmore_top

If you need assistance in locating parts, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the wash tub opening under the lid), and I can provide that information for you.

When you disassemble the washer, a tell-tale sign of gearcase failure will be signs of oil spray marks on the interior cabinet walls. If the washer has gotten to this stage, it may be a good idea to replace the gearcase as well. If the only indication you have is a few oil spills on the floor, try running the washer for a while with a piece of cardboard under the gearcase to see if the problem persists. The reason I suggest this is because I have seen signs of leakage in these gearcases before, cleaned up the spill and never had another problem. Its much easier to replace the coupling first. I hope this information is helpful to you. Let me know how things go, and if you need further assistance.
