It does not remove from the rear.
There are 2 phillips screws at the back right and left of the control panel.
Remove these screws and lift the control panel forward then backwards.
Unplug the lid switch wire.
Remove the 2 metal clips holding the cabinet to the back panel.
Remove the cabinet by pulling it forward.
Then you can view the leak from the tube causing your problem.

The water leak is from the white tub cover on top of the tub. The seal needs replaced.

The oil is from the transmission.

I honestly would replace the washer.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.92579110

LEAKING:

See the Sears site sub-components for the agitator, basket and tub. It's possible that one of the gaskets or seals has worn over time.

I'd also pull off the cabinet and check the hoses leading to and from the pump. It's also possible that the pump is leaking.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

The illustrations also show how to remove the transmission.

OIL

The black oil / fluid that you see is likely coming from the transmission.

Since it seems to be "spraying" around the inside of the cabinet, I'd assume that it is leaking from the top seal between the transmission and clutch.

See the following for a parts breakdown of Whirlpool top load direct drive washers.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

If you look at page 15, you'll see a Seal, Gearcase Cover. It is possible that that is the cause of your transmission leak.

The rust on the bottom of the transmission may (hopefully) be simply caused by the water leak.

I'd remove the gearcase cover (8 bolts) in order to check the gearcase cover seal, and to check the oil level. The Whirlpool transmission takes about 15oz or 80-90 weight oil.

Water is not filling in tub, leaks to the floor. hoses from faucet are good, no leak there


Check the connections from the water inlet mixing (control) valve to the tub. Access to the valve connections can be acquired (usually) from the rear of the unit, and access to the tub connection can be obtained from either the rear port, or by removing the front panel. I had a brand-new Maytag washer leak on its very first load because the hose clamp on the tub inlet line was loose. I tightened from the rear access port.

If these connections and other hose connections are good, I would begin to suspect a main bearing seal or spin bearing and seal, and would depend on your specific make and model. Repairs in this latter category can be both time consuming, expensive, and may require special tooling.

Machine leaks when clothes are washed but not


this could be a simple issue or a severe issue.
if you feel adventurous disconnect unit, and remove Rear access panel. inspect the rear bearring at the pulley, check for oil leakage and water residue. if there is water around the bearring the unit requires an overhaul. if nothing you should be ok.
it could be a disconnected vent at the top of the machine.
remove front access panel and inspect all rubber boots and connections for water.
this is best done just after washer has leaked, inspect where water is comming from.
there are many things that could be causing this.

I have a kenmore front load washer model number 4174104200 and water is leaking onto floor.


Can you describe WHERE the leak may be coming from? If the leak is coming from the front area of the washer, it may be the door bellow (rubber gasket), or the drain pump. You will need to open the door and pull back the folds in the rubber gasket and inspect for cracks or tears in the rubber. To inspect the pump, you need to remove the bottom panel under the door and look for any leaks inside the unit. The drain pump is in the front, directly under the wash tub. Also check all hose connections. If the washer is leaking from the rear area, check the fill hoses and drain hoses for cracks or holes. Make sure all hose connections are tight. The fill valve is another possiblity too. You will need to remove the top panel to view the valve to ensure it is not dripping. Please verify your symptoms and let me know. I hope this helps.
