Most likely the washer transmission will need to be replaced, that is the only part that has oil to leak out in it.

Testimonial: "I thought so, but wanted to hear opinions of others. Any idea of the hassle factor in replacing this? Is it worth it to do so."

    It is a huge and really expensive job, best left to a professional, just my opinion.

    I looked up the cost of the part. Does not seem to be worth doing considering the time and cost of the part.

We have a hot point washer. That's washing ok spins ok some times. But once machines been turned off and I come to do another load. The machine is full of wTer why???

Maybe the cold/hot water inlet valve has a faulty seat or seal that is allowing water to leak thru to washer despite the valve being closed. Probably need to replace that valve. Look at some of these links on YouTube on repairing or diagnosing water problems:

1996 Kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic oil leak in the lower back of the engine

Hi, Anonymous external oil deposits fall into 3 categories:
1. WEEPAGE is oil that is sweated pass gaskets, seals, o-rings, and crankcase seams, it's covered by dry dust and is normal for older engines with lots of miles, no repair is necessary.
2. SEEPAGE is the same as weepage except the deposit is wet and confines itself to a specific area, repair is optional depending on the owner's cleanliness criteria, the deposit location and the amount of "DRACHMA" he is willing to part with
3. LEAKAGE is the same as seepage except it is enough to drop to the ground leaving a spot. Repair as necessary.
To find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.

Washing machine oil likeage? how to solve? what factors should be considered while repair washing machine?

your washing machine is leaking oil from the transmission. This is the gearing assembly that spins and agitates the washer while in cycle. Factors to consider, 1 cost of the assembly itself (the motor itself is possibly still in good shape) but since you have taken the machine apart to this level I would change motor out at the same time to prevent future repairs. 2 complexity of removal There are some machines that require certain types of tools to remove retaining rings. 3 Overall cost for repair, motor cost, transmission cost, tool purchase (if any) age of unit, is it worth the amount of money being put into it over the purchase of a new unit.

Good luck hope I have helped some

Kenmore Model 110.92586210 Transmission gear oil leak

You have to remove the transmission and disassemble the clutch assembly. If it is only a very small amount, maybe just a drop or two, just let it be.If it is leaking quite a bit, you can bet not only the transmission seal is leaking, but also the center shaft seals are going bad as well. The transmission doesn't hold very much oil and quite a bit has to leak out before causing problems.

Washing Machine-hot water source

Most washers require both hot and cold supply. If it has two hose fittings on the back, then you need both hot and cold. I've only seen Asko washers that need just the cold. Even if your washer has a water heat option, it will only heat during a portion of the cycle if the option is selected, it is not a substitute for the hot water supply.

If there is oil leaking out, you may have a leaking gearbox.
There is nothing you can do about that but replace the gearbox.
Here is a website link for parts.
