Oil drip on bottom of gearcase Kenmore Model 110.21882 washer

While replacing the motor drive coupling, I noticed oil-grease around the gearbox shaft where the coupling slides on as well as some oil drips on the bottom of the gearbox case.
I am assuming the shaft seal has gone bad.
Can the seals be easily replaced?

Unless there is an abundance of oil this is normal.
If you tilted the machine to replace the coupling that could cause some oil to escape also.
There is a small hole in the top cover of the gearcase to release pressure. Sometimes a little oil comes out too.

My mixer simply does not turn on and has an oil leak. How do I troubleshoot and fix?


Check for circuits through cable, switch and field windings. While checking the fields check that your carbon brushes aren't worn out. Remove the chrome drip ring from around the planetary (it just taps off) and clean the oil out. If you are feeling brave you can knock the planetary pin out that connects it to the driving shaft and lever the planetary off. Wipe the excess oil out of there remembering that the gear does need a smear of grease remaining. The oil is the grease in the gearbox breaking down with age, eventually you will need to open the gearbox, remove the old grease & replace it. The oil itself is harmless as the grease is food grade so it's not a petroleum product.

Cv boot failure


The best thing to do is completely remove the front drive shaft (assuming you are talking about the front CV boots).
1) Jack up the front end of the vehicle.2) Remove front wheel(s), track rod ends and slacken [don't remove completely just yet] the centre hub nut and remove split pin.3) With the gear in neutral, and using an appropriately sized round punch and hammer, punch out the location pin from the drive shaft where the drive shaft meets the gearbox output shafts.4) With the assistance of a flat screwdriver, lever and pull the drive shafts off the gearbox output shafts and let them drop down. 5) Using a rubber mallet, hammer the drive shaft through the front hub. You kept the nut on the end of the shaft initially so as to prevent damage to the drive shaft threads during hammering. This nut will have to be backed off and eventually removed as the shaft slides through and out of the hub unit.
With the entire shaft removed from the vehicle:
1) Cut off or slacken and remove any rubber boot retaining clips.2) slide the rubber boot(s) towards the centre of the shaft.3) Remove the inner joint first by using a small, flat screwdriver to flick out the retaining wire from the inner lip of the joint. (Keep this wire)4) Slide off inner joint cup and clean.
5) Locate the spring clip from the inner end of the shaft and carefully remove without over-stretching. if you have no replacement.
6) Slide off inner C.V. joint, and clean.
7) Remove damaged boot(s), clean all components, re-grease with LM grease and replace.
8) Reinstallation is the opposite of removal steps.


Note: Take care when re-installing drive shaft to gearbox output shaft. This will usually only align to a single position. Before tapping retaining pin back into place, visually inspect alignment of the shaft's holes. You can use your round punch to help align the holes before re-installation of the retaining pin.


Tip: With the removal of the front drive shafts, it may be a good opportunity to also replace front gearbox output oil seals and front wheel bearing-drive shaft dust seals. These are fairly inexpensive and may prolong the life of components as well as reduce the need for repetitive removal of parts.

I have oil dripping onto the catalytic converter


It could be the gear position switch neutral switch on the rear of the gearbox if oil dripping from rear
Could also be output shaft seal going
A good site for help from other oil head riders is ukgsr as the only way to find leak is to remove drive parts till you find leak

2005 BMW 320D E90 MANUAL TRANSMISSION Hi a noise on my clutch when pushing it down and releasing it just after the free play travel the clutch seems to be 100% still pulls well not slipping or shuddering...


most likely its the thrust bearing noisy but it could also be the layshaft bearings in the gearbox as well ,check the gearbox oil level and check its ok if ok then its a thrust bearing ,these modern motors with a nylon bearing holder are not very good to say the least ,now if oil level is low in gearbox then before you top level up use a grease gun and remove the nipple thing on the end and then pump a good grease gun full of LM grease into gearbox and then top up with EP90 as this will help seal any leaks and stop a lot of the noise ,you cannot hurt anything by putting the grease in the gearbox i do it lot to stop a leaky gearbox from leaking as the grease gets hot and sinks to the bottom and solidifies stopping a lot of the leaks from gear linkages and around the drive shafts although this is a rear wheel drive vehicle so that is less of a problem

The resistance motor on our WESY75740 stopped working. We tried to recalibrate, but it failed to do anything. What should we do?


I would check the wiring harness. I have a Weider Platinum WESY78732 and have had issues with wires coming off of the motor. I ended up putting an automotive (female) spade connector on the end and squeezing it with pliers to keep it on there tighter. A lot of these Weider Home Gyms have wiring issues.

Whirlpool toploader gearbox/clutch removal


Last Night I took the machine apart to find clutch/brake assy ok gearbox was also ok then I noticed shaft coupling was different than new part I had in stock, new part made totally of nylon, old part fitted to machine has steel insert built into nylon. this was not fully located onto motor shaft and the first 1/4" of motor shaft had been stripped back to round ( no flat faces) also inside the steel lined bore of the nylon coupling had been worn to round.I replaced with new coupling of nylon and ensured both nylon parts fully pushed home onto motor shaft and gearbox shaft with any freeplay / gap being allowed in the rubber drive link. This has worked for now but expect trouble in future with worn motor shaft.

Kenmore 90 series washing machine


there is a coupling between the gearbox and the motor, it is broken, it is easy to replace, and inexpensive
the coupler can be purchased at a local parts store
'Kenmore motor/gearbox coupler' will get it for you, there is only on for all the models.
it is an easy fix
  • unplug washer
  • remove trim ends of control panel
  • remove phillips head screws from bottoms of control panel under where trim was
  • slide control panel forweard & up about 1 inch, then flip over the back of the control panel, do not dislodge the air hose
  • remove brass clips in rear corners of top with screwdriver, remember how they fit
  • unplug lid switch connector
  • lift body 1inch and slide forward to remove
  1. front center is the motor pump and gearbox
  2. do NOT disconnect hoses
  • remove spring clips holding pump on to motor shaft, note where they go for reinstall. there may be a lock screw in the top right clip.
  • swing pump to the left and use a string or bread bag tie to hold it out of the way.
  • remove spring clips holding motor to gearbox shaft, note where they go for reinstall. there may be a lock screw in the top right clip.
  • heave motor forward, to separate the coupling
  • remove coupling halves from gearbox shaft and motor shaft and discard.
  • using a wooden dowel and hammer, on the center of the new coupling halves, drive them onto the motor and gearbox shafts, (dont hit the fingers, they break, note the new couplings have metal centres to solve ongoing problems.)
  • rotate gearbox coupling, 1 up 2 down
  • rotate motor coupling, 2 up 1 down
  • install rubber shock pad on gearbox coupling
  • install motor on shock pad
  • reinstall spring clips and lock screw if fitted (bottom first, rock the motor on rubber shock mount to ease spring clip installation)
  • rotate motor shaft to align with pump input
  • install pump on motor shaft
  • install spring clips and lock screw if fitted
reinstall body in reverse order

it takes less time to do the repair than it takes to type this
