Oil is leaking out from under agitator and soiling clothes. How can we repair this?


washing machines have a 'transmission' which controls the agitator, if the seal is compromised you might get contamination as you describe. Unfortunately, the transmission and seals are the single most expensive part of your washer, repairing it might actually cost more than replacing the entire machine, considering the price of a good used device.

Whirlpool washer 1987 model CA7800XPW1: the agitator slow and/or stops only to resume to full speed at other times. I can't get the agitator off; got the back off and the belt looks OK; it seems like...


Hello,
The agitator should be able to be removed once the bolt in the center of it is removed,the oil you see is from the transmission that contain the gears that make the agitator swoosch back and forth,if ya see a lot oil its leaked out of the trans. and the internal gears are stripped.It could be that the center spine of the agitator itself where it connects to the trans. shaft is stripped but unless the agitator comes off where will be no way to see if that is it. IF you want to invest in tl that most likely you will never use again there is a tool out that is a rubber bladder that slips under the agitator and is filled w/water when its filled it expands and pushs the agaitator up from the bottom

Oil is leaking from under washing machine. Looks like motor oil but has no odor. Is this fixable and if so, approx. how much would it cost ?


The only device holding oil under your washer is the transmission. If your washer still has agitate and spin cycles the transmission has not failed but being that there is a leak it will fail soon. Depending on the washer a transmission can be from about 180.00 to 230.00 if you buy the part yourself and do your own labor. If you feel like wrestling with it the front cabinet is held on with two clips under the control panel.

Agitator is slipping


sounds like the belt which drives the agitator is either slipping (because or wear or stretching the tension required for proper rotary function has decreased). The other thought is that the pulley system is slipping on the belt becasue of oil or grease leaking from the transmission, which controls the agitate and spin function.
Get under there and look, and clean it if needed. A degreaser may help, or, use an automotive BELT DRESSING spray, available from the local auto parts store.

ON the second wash I did today, after the second wash my clothes came out with streaks of black. What would cause this?


Grease is leaking into the drum under the agitator cone.

Remove the agitator cone. There will likely be a removable plastic piece with an O-ring. Oil could be leaking out of the O-ring into the washer, and water could be leaking into the bearings. If there is damage to the O-ring replace it, or if there is a bunch of schmag that is compromising the seal, clean it out, and re-install everything. This solved the problem in my washer; hopefully it works for you.

theres nothing under your agitator, first take cover off your agitator there should be a small bolt
holding it down, take that bolt out then grab agitator from bottom and pull up it should come off easy.
