I have oil leaking on my 110 24622300 Kenmore washing machine


If oil is dripping on your washing machine, you must have something above it that is leaking. Look up to find it.

Your washing machine does not have an engine.

Washing machine leaking underneath


might simply be a small hole in the outlet drainage hose, this would explain why your machine leaks during the final spin, there is more pressure from the water inside the hose during the final spin than when the machine is draining. hope this helps.

The clothes are still wet after dry cycle is finished


Lift the washing machine and look underneath. Inspect the bottom of the gear case for evidence of oil. If oil is present, the oil may have leaked onto the spin clutch causing it to slip during your final spin. The transmission and clutch may need to be replaced.

Washer will not spin there is water on the floor and has a fault code of 130 it is fisher+paykel brand model numberWL26CW1


Hi just read your posting.Error Code 130 means your fault is called Single Rotor Position Sensor Error.This component is attached to your motor which is underneath your machine.What concerns me is your machine is leaking.Did the Error Code appear the same time your machine started leaking?The reason I am asking this is because the water could have damaged the rotor sensor.Is the water leaking underneath the machine?Please reply with additional information and I can help you rectify this fault.

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.

Whirlpool washing - clothes are still dripping wet at end of wash


Hello, sounds like you have a problem with your clutch assembly, tilt the machine back and access it from underneath..if you see oil at the base next to the motor this means your transmission is going bad and the oil has got into the clutch assembly..If this is the case you may as well go buy a new washer now since it is really expensive to replace the clutch and transmission. If however you don't see any evidence of oil underneath your going to need to replace the clutch assembly. If you have mechanical experiance by all means try yourself...if no experiance get a tech in to do it :) thanks for using fixya! Mike

Washer barely agitating and not spinning


This may be an indication of a failing transmission. Look underneath the machine and particularly at the base of the transmission for signs of leaking oil. If so, the transmission is definitely failing.

Kemore washing machine


The spin problem is related to the clutch and possibly the transmission. The transmission will leak oil which gets into the clutch causing it to slip. Reach underneath the machine and wipe your hand across the base of the transmission. If there is oil on your hand replace the transmission and clutch..

WASH MACHINE IS LEAKING GEAR OIL ON FLOOR AND WON'T SPIN THE CLOTHES OUT


If there is oil leaking out, you may have a leaking gearbox.
There is nothing you can do about that but replace the gearbox.
Here is a website link for parts.
