Washer walks away from wall during spin cycle and noticed black substance under the washer


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal drum suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

its is indeed the coupler
thats is usually exactly what we look for when we inspect them
i risk a bad rating, but i would at the very least inspect the coupler,
barring that, your transmission has popped a leak
and your hearing a grinding from the clutch or brake

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAVT754EWW machine and there is a black soot like substance being left on the floor under the washer. It smells like rubber - do I need to replace the belt and if so, how do I do...


this black soot like substance is the motor carbon brush dust. i would get the motor brushes replaced and clean off all the dust from the pulleys and also replace the belt as it has been slipping on the dust.

Transmission noise


Washers normally don't have much grease in them at all....the transmission is full of oil....which on GE washers often gets dumped onto the floor.Remove power, tilt the washer back and check on/around/near the large center pulley under the tranny....often the belt and pulley throw the oil around inside the cabinet.
Some of the oils they use are a synthetic oil....acts a little diff than some other oils....sometimes if water gets into the tranny the oil can change foamy or black due to the moisture.

Oil spill under washing machine


Sorry, this could be bad. The transmission might have blown a seal. It's a big job to fix, if this is the problem. It might be time to consider replacing the machine.

Oil/Grease under washer machine


Nash, your unit appears to be made by Whirlpool. (Kenmore doesn't manufacture anything, they purchase from major manufacturers and put the "kenmore" name on them) If, as I suspect, it is made by Whirlpool... the top transmission seal is failed allowing small amounts of water to enter the tranny. The water, being heavier than oil, will displace the oil through the top of the tranny... out through a "weep" hole. The weep hole is not designed to allow fluid to escape, it's designed to allow air to enter and exit the transmission housing, compensating for the heat expansion and contraction of the lubricant that should be contained within. Regardless of the manufacturer, you have a main drive system failure on your hands. It'll only get worse from here. Most manufacturers put a 5 year warranty on their drive-trains, you should call them immediately. If it's over 5 years old, it's a very expensive repair.
