I have a similar problem with a Kenmore top loader washing machine.It turned out a problem with the main shaft of the drum; it wears out and caused drag on it. at one point i installed a washer or spacer between the shaft and drum it worked for a while and the problem came back again. it is a mechanical problem and it is present with other brands that share the same drum and shaft.
Finally I end up buying a different brand this time a LG .

Yes the transmission is the only place for oil to come from. There are rebuild kits availabe if your mechanically inclined and can do this work yourself, if not you need to call a technician.

Amana washing machine makes loud noice when trying to spin


sounds like you are dealing with the same problem as me .
take off the front panel (after unplugging power) take a flash lite and look at the large pulley at the back just below the pulley is the helix check to see if they are worn .

Makes loud noise when on spin cycle


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

First: Loud Banging Noise. Now: No spin cycle.


Sounds like it may have been overloaded, or unblanced, I would say it would be better to replace....it can get pricey if the first fix doesn't work. Washers don't cost what they use to, get a scratch and dent sale item and save money too!

Troubleshooting Whirlpool Push to Start Mechanism for Washer


What kind of whirlpool do you have? is it a top loader or a frontloader. If it is a top loader is there water entering the washer? does it not agetate? Does it not Spin. If it does not wash or spin it is a possible bad lid switch close the lid. Do you hear a click? If you have no CLICK sound you have a bad lid switch.

NAV5800a top loader washer


The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.

Kenmore front loader drum grinding


This can be a symptom of drum bearing wear. A quick check for wear is to see if the inner drum moves up and down relative to the fixed outer drum. It should only move a minute amount. If it moves more than a millimeter or two, it is probably worn bearings. Regarding the bad smell - Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and remove out the bad smell. Good luck!

Loud clicking noise at spin cycle


It sounds like you have a motor coupling that has gone bad. Most of the Kenmore top loaders that I'm familiar with are direct drive machines. Which means, they use a motor coupling between the electric drive motor and transmission to run. If you are in the habit of doing heavy loads like comforters, blankets and jeans this can put a heavy burden on the motor coupler and wear it out faster. The coupler is designed to take the burden of the punishment in order to protect the transmission and drive motor and it is common for them to wear out. The coupler is fairly easy to replace and usually runs about $15. It is located inside the machine between the drive motor and transmission under the wash tub. You would have to remove the outside machine casing, the water pump and drive motor to get to it, though. Make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting any repairs involving removal of the drive motor. If you are not mechanically inclined, you may want to seek the aid of a repairman. I hope this helps.
