    after further inspection i found that it is leaking oil? what should i do now

  • joepackers Jan 27, 2008

    yeah its leaking oil buts its just on the motor and not on the floor could there just be a small leak or once it starts to go it has to be repair. we was going to get a new washer in february. you think it would last about three more weeks the way it is.

    lean the washer back and check to see if the transmission bolts are tight .remove the cup in the agitator and check to see if the 7/16 bolt is tight see if you can lift up and down on the agitator see if any oil is leaking under the agitator last remove the agitater and see if the inner tub is tight on the tub block

If its leaking oil you have to replace the transmission the transmission has a five year warranty but to take advantage of that you have to have an authorized servicer replace it now the tranny will cost about as much as the labor to put it in around 125.00 but you wont have to do the work if your going to do it i can instruct just let me know if you call a servicer make sure they are authorized to do kenmore warrenty and shop around till you find the best price also you can go to sears website and locate one from there in your area if your going to do it your self you can get the tranny from an appliance parts store cheaper than sears

If dogs and coupling are replaced, then you will need to look at the transmisson, check the piece that holds drum on itself, this bearing can go bad. There is also a seal under the nut that holds on the air bell housing.
There is also a plastic hub that connects the agitator to the motor that can go worn.

Loud and Grinding during spin cycle

More often than not, something get sucked down into the pump. The pump is located in the lower left of the unit (typically) and can be accessed by removing the front panel. You may need to lift the top section to release the front panel. An example - I recently repaired a washer that had a bobby pin lodged in the fins of the pump and prevented it from spinning so that it couldn't drain. I removed the pin and re-assembled the machine and it has worked perfectly.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.

Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

Whirlpool washer Mod# TWAS750PQO, Ser# CR3520005

is it possible that the washer was overloaded? if so the agitator has little plastic "gears" that move the agitator one way only, they could have made the sound. 
you can also check under the washer to see if anything (like a coat-hanger or something) is interfering with moving parts of the washer
