I have or thought I have posted you a solution. Here goes again. Unfortunately you cannot refill it unless you remove transmission from the washer and then you'll have to open it up to refill it. It's very doable if you are somewhat mechanicaly inclined. Good Luck

I have a gs susuki gl 1982 driveshaft that holds 90 weight gear oil thats leaking out of the side by the gear shifter cover is there a seal that can be replaced or does it have a crack in the motor ca

Think the gear change end is not 90 grade oil ,it is 20/50. The bevel drive end is 90 but the motor is 20/50. And there is a seal in the case, unless you have a crack somewhere, depends where the leak is coming from.

My washer has water leaking from motor

There is no way for water to leak from the motor . Check for water running down on the motor from the bottom of the tub. The seal may be bad water is comeing from somewhere else just have to find where it's comeing from. Hope this helps you.

My Whirlpool washer is leaking oil out of the bottom and onto the floor. Model# LHA5500WI. How can I fix this problem? It has a 1/2 hp motor, 1725 rpm, 1440 rpm, rubber mounted.

The leak would be from the gear box. The seals on the gearbox are worn out.

Best to get technician to remove gearbox, and have it reconditioned.

You lost a seal in the gear-box, needs a new one, burning rubber smell is from the belt slipping and the gear-box being low on oil giving too much resistance on the belt.
Don't run it until you solve the oil leak and refill with oil

Oil leak in washing machine

Sounds like the transmission is leaking. These transmission don't need to be full of oil to function. But, if it's leaking a lot, like tablespoons, it should be checked. It's not the end of the line. Just may need a service call if it's a plentiful leak.
