The oil is coming from the transmission. You should also check to see if there is any pieces of black rubber, and see if you can move the coupler kit with your hand. Either the coupler is bad or your transmission is bad. A little oil from the transmission doesn't mean it is bad, however.

What is causing my Kenmore top washer to make a grinding noise before the rinse cycle?


Have you replaced the clutch or spin tube? There is a brake actuator that comes with the clutch kit and if this is broken it can make a very loud grinding or clacking sound.

Kenmore 90 plus series washer won't spin, barely agitates, will drain - but makes loud noise


It sounds like the transmission is done. Can't pinpoint what it is exactly, but I would start there.

My Kenmore 80 series washer won't spin, and it just makes a loud gear grinding noise. What could this be, and how do I fix, in the simplest form please I'm chick... :)


rebecca it is probably the motor coupler. Move or slide ur machine over and if there is ruber filings under it then it is the coupler.

Series 90 with loud buzzing/grinding noise, won't spin


It could have gone out of balance. See if the drum looks off center and center it if necessary. Turn it off and back on to reset the switch. If that doesn't work, try pressing on the lid either 2/3 of the way back on the right or all the way back on the left (depends on the model -- try both) and see if it starts. If it does, I would suspect the lid switch.

I have a kenmore 90 series washer that won't spin. It makes a grinding type noise at that point in the cycle. I followed the trouble shooting guide and checked the motor/gearbox coupler. The coupler looks...


If the coupling is OK then the problem is most likely to be further up the drive-line, which means the gearbox has probably failed. .........Nomess
