Is there anywhere that you can tighten the seal retainer if not needs a new seal . My experience is that a seal kit is as expensive as buying a new jack plus the work that goes into it. Look up how much to buy a new one and a set of seals then decide

SOURCE: MOdel 110.92579110 leaking water out bottom of

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.

How to overhaul/ repair a hydraulic floor jack?


Sounds like a bad seal on that plunger that pumps up and down. That plunger should unscrew and then it's pilled out , there should be an O ring. That is where it probably is leaking. You probably need to top off oil. You can jack oil in an auto store or Lowes, etc.

Repair all leaks to get true test of condition of cylinder / piston ring and check/reed valves. It is reccommended to know amount of time to fill tank when new and compare this time to present. Filling time is indication of wear. Another method to discover wear is to remove cover to pump and examine condition of cylinder wall close to top of cylinder (on oil-less models). If you see scratches on cylinder, air is leaking past piston seal. On pumps that use oil, very hot discharge air hose or pump head is indication of leaking valves or head gasket. Sears usually has good prices on replacement parts. Good holidays

Sears model # 875.501390 floor jack will not raise at all.


IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS CAPABLE OF MOVING FLUID FROM THE RESERVOIR TO THE CYLINDER. CAN YOU SEE THE SMALL PUMP PISTON POP BACK OUT WHEN PUMPING THE HANDLE? MOST JACK PROBLEMS BELIEVE IT NOT IS AIR. THEY GET AIR POCKETS IN THEM AND CANT PUMP THEM OUT. TRY REMOVING THE FILL PLUG ( TYPICALLY A SMALL RUBBER POP-IN CAP ) FROM THE CYLINDER AND JACK IT UP. IF THIS WORKS DO IT FEW TIMES, THEN REINSTALL THE PLUG. YOU COULD ALSO HAVE A SMALL CHECK VALVE PROBLEM INSIDE. IF YOU DISASSEMBLE, BEWARE OF SMALL SPRINGS AND CHECK BALLS. MAKE NOTES. HOPE THIS HELPS.
