Sorry, there is no place to oil a washer transmission. They are built with a lifetime supply of oil inside. Same with the bearings.

Washer makes loud jet like sound in spin cycle

Need to check the oil level on your transmission. Maybe there is no oil because the oil seal is broken. You may have to have your transmission replaced if it has been running for sometime like that.

After some loads, what appears to be gear oil (about 8 or 10 streaks of it) shows up on the inside of the agitator. I thought it was just years of buildup, so i cleaned it and ran through a small load. ...

GE washers are notorious for transmission leaks. Personally, I wouldn't spend much time or effort on a major repair of a 14 year old washer. Suggest you contact a local parts house and see if the upper seal is available as a kit. Other sites suggest that this transmission is no longer available new, and even then it's a $250 part. If you ruin one load of clothes with transmission oil, you're probably halfway to the price of a new one.

Oil stains inside of washer on the aggitator.

The transmission seal has gone bad. That typically happens when the bearing wears and becomes "sloppy", putting pressure on the seal. If you're getting oil OUT of the transmission, you could be getting water IN, which is pushing the oil out or the oil could be coming out just because of heat. Either way, you'll need a transmission.

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.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=+110.26912691

You'll see part numbers and prices for oil.

When we had to tear out transmission apart (3 times) we did some research and found that basic 80-90 weight non-detergent gear oil (available much cheaper than Sears oil at most auto parts stores) works for these transmissions.

Oil driping from motor assembly puddling under

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

It's quite possible that the cover plate on the transmission is leaking.

Pulling the transmission and taking the cover off is a bit of a messy jobv but not too difficult. It holds about 15 oz. of 80-90 weight gear oil.

See the following for how to pull the transmission.

You don't have to remove the tub to pull the transmission.

Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft), remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 14 - 15Oz of oil

If the top of the case is leaking, you might try a gasket / sealer available at most auto repair / parts shops.

While you have the top off of the transmission, you might also want to check the condition of the plastic parts in the transmission itself.

Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore PDf on how the transmission works and the parts inside it.$FILE/787772%20%234.pdf

Leaking grease

All washer machines have a "transmission" - just like a car these units have oil in them and when the seals that protect the oil from going to our clothes is breake, oil finds its way to your clothes.
Transmission needs to be replaced.
