If the drive block was pushed in to far into the transmission it will damage the seal causing it to leak.

Oil spills on that design are almost unheard of. See if it's still covered under the warranty. if not it's possible to repair it cheaply but more often than not it's more practical to replace the machine especially if its had a lot of use

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.

Hello.

what you need to do to solve the problem of the washer is to troubleshoot below are step by step solution on how to solve the problem.


If your washing machine is out of whack, check for these easy fixes
before you spend money and time on a repairman.

1 Make sure the cord is plugged in and that the breaker hasn't tripped.

2 Reset the overload switch - according to the manufacturer's directions - if the machine won't turn on but the breaker hasn't tripped. (Make sure you take some of the clothes out before you run it again or you'll have the same problem.)

3 Check the hot water faucet if the water isn't warm. Also clean the filter screens and make sure that your hot-water heater isn't out of hot water.

4 Make sure the faucets are on, the filters are clean and that the hoses aren't kinked if the washer is filling too slowly.

5 Clear any obstructions in the hose if the clothes are too wet at the end of a cycle. Also, be sure the washer is spinning; if it isn't, remove some of the clothes and redistribute the load. Reset the overload switch. Tighten the drive belt if this doesn't fix the problem.

6 Check the hoses for damage if you are seeing water leaks on the floor.

7 Put a nylon stocking on your hand and feel around the inside of the washer if you are finding snagged or torn clothing. Sand rough spots with fine sandpaper.

Thanks.

Piece of clothing caught in spinning wheel


Hello, you a side load washing machine. The spinning wheel is a counter weight for the wash tub.
The tub out seal that fit around the tub is worn out. News a new seal. Unplug the washing machine and remove from cover with the door. Once you have the front panel with the door the tub seal is attached to the front by lock clips. Remove the clips or screws. Now, check the interior seal and make sure does have any hole in it. If there is holes then walter will leak on to the floor.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would suspect the water inlet control valve may be malfunctioning- not closing (its default no power position).
Quick temporary fix, although tiresome, turn whichever tap, hot or cold, off when washing finished. You've probably already thought of that!
In the meantime I would suggest a service call is required ;-0(

The clothes are still wet after dry cycle is finished


Lift the washing machine and look underneath. Inspect the bottom of the gear case for evidence of oil. If oil is present, the oil may have leaked onto the spin clutch causing it to slip during your final spin. The transmission and clutch may need to be replaced.

Hi! GE top load washer model number wwse5240 is leaving grease stains inside the machine after laundering and of course on clothes. Not sure how old this machine is.


Your transmission is leaking oil. It's probably 10 to 15 years old for the transmission to be leaking. It can be replaced but it's not a small job. Part 320 in this diagram is your transmission. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5224109&diagram_id=22255027#d22255027

It's direct drive. It may have a bad coupler. Did you see any black particles under washer? Also look for oil on floor and bottom of washer. Transmission can leak oil into clutch causing slow spin.
