Question about Kenmore 88752 Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer
Model 110 88752 791
Technician came out yesterday, said 2 of the 3 supports have punched through the big black center support (part #671012 at RepairClinic.com) for the washer tub.
Until we can buy a new unit, I want to rig up some alternate supports, like bricks or wood, so we can run an emergency load now and then (we have a not-fully-toilet-trained kid). I know this is not ideal, but I think the benefits outweigh the risks.
Now I need to open the front cabinet back up, so I can get at the machinery, but I can't remember how the technician did it. I do remember that the cabinet clips are down near the bottom, one at each side, lined up vertically on the side lip of each side panel.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)

Should be two screws on each side of the bottom of the front panel. Takes those out and push the panel up and out. (There are two "tabs?" in the middle of the front panel that lock into the side panels, so you have to push up and then pull out.)

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
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.
The illustrations also show how to remove the transmission.
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.
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.

Testimonial: "All the reference sites are very helpful and a time saver, so thank you! Now on to my further repair homework to solve all the mysteries of machinery."
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!**((
