Ihave grease coming from under the agitator How do I get in to have a look


The grease seal on the agitator/washer transmission has failed. The agitator is held in by one bolt/nut on the top of drive shaft under the plastic cover, which can be glued down and hard to remove.

How do i remove agitator to clean dirt and grease?


Top Loader?

Undo that big plastic cap on the top which clicks as you undo it. Once removed lift the agitator up. Wear rubber gloves and remove fluff and grease. Put agitator back making sure it on the splines. Screw down the cap by hand.

My 4 year old roper washer leaves grease on clothes. On spin cycle the machine makes a screaching noise, and the clothes don't spin dry.


Possible that the belt is slipping and also there is some issue with the agitator as the gaps within seems to bring up the dirt or grease mix to the clothes.
So it is important to remove the panel and check the play on the belt, replace if the play is high and check if the agitator bearings are worn out. If so the agitator assembly must be taken out and checked.

Fine garment caught under centralrotor has black mark on it , is this grease?


It is not grease. Under the agitator there will be a sticky buildup of detergent and dirt that has stuck to it. Overtime this buildup can become quite a lot. When your garment became caught up under the agitator, it was becoming stained with this buildup.

Whirlpool washer (model LA9100XTW1)


Usually problems like this, you just have to take it apart and see. I can tell you a few things that will help though. It's not a deteriorating belt. In fact this machine doesn't have a belt at all, it's what is called "direct drive". The closest thing it has to a belt is a round piece of rubber in between a gear but that's near the motor and it's not possible for it to get inside the tub. In fact, it's hard for anything to get in there to stain clothes. Usually what causes this, is a build up of dirt, soap, mud, mold, etc that collects under the agitator and finally just gets enough to start releasing into the tub. It's pretty easy to take out the agitator and check under there, here's how.

To remove the agitator on a Whirlpool top-load washer, remove the solid cap or fabric softener dispense from the middle of the agitator. Then remove the white cap on the inside of the agitator. This might be stubborn, so just start off pulling gently and keep pulling until it comes out. Under that is a 7/16" bolt. Remove that and then the agitator will slide off the transmission shaft.

The only other option is removing the inner tub entirely, but that requires a special tool to get a nut off of the drive block, so that limits DIY repairs.

Kenmore 80 Series washer leaves brown grease marks


Remove the agitator and check the shaft seal underneath the plastic drive block at the top of the shaft. Move the shaft in different directions to check the condition of the top bearing. If none or very slight, replace the seal at the top of the shaft supporting post. Clean any grease that is outside of the seal when you are done. Be sure to not damage the seal surface on the shaft when removing/replacing the seal and pre-grease the new seal's inner lip before installing.

My Whirlpool Calypso top loading washer (purchased in June of 2002) is starting to leave brown or dirt colored marks on clothing and sheets (I think they are permanent!) - I don't see any obvious place...


Run the washer empty with vinegar on the hottest, longest cycle. Usually this is caused from fabric softener and liquid detergent build up. Use powder detergent only and don't use cold water to wash in all the time. Only use cold water for your bright, finer cloths. Cold water use causes detergent build up.

SPOTS ON WHITE CLOTHES


if your washer has a slight rumble noise when on the spin then it is most likely that your bearings are on there way out,what it is is the bearings have grease in them and once the bearings start to go this grease starts to leak into the drum which is what the brown spots are it also leaks at the back around the bearing at the back of your outer drum and also leaks onto the floor this will need fixing by a domestic appliance engineer but it is sometimes cheaper to replace the washing machine
