The oil like substance could be coolant, but it could be something else. If the compressor has developed a leak you won't have that long before it goes, and you will notice the compressor getting hotter and hotter before it just totally locks up. BUT are you sure that the oil like substance is coming from the compressor and not the coolant line? If it is the coolant line that can be repaired and the unit charged with coolant as long as the compressor hasn't locked up due to low coolant. SO I would attempt to localize the leak the best you can.
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.
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
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.
