Ihave grease coming from under the agitator How do I get in to have a look


The grease seal on the agitator/washer transmission has failed. The agitator is held in by one bolt/nut on the top of drive shaft under the plastic cover, which can be glued down and hard to remove.

How do i remove agitator to clean dirt and grease?


Top Loader?

Undo that big plastic cap on the top which clicks as you undo it. Once removed lift the agitator up. Wear rubber gloves and remove fluff and grease. Put agitator back making sure it on the splines. Screw down the cap by hand.

My r2 diesel just keeps thumbling but wont start is timming d problem


check for air in the system and bleed out. Unless you have done something to the pump (timing belt) there will be no problem with the timing. Run the fault codes or have the injectors reconditioned.

Hi,

The bearings are pre-loaded with grease but a smear of lithium grease can be used to ease fitting into the spider.The howling could be possibly because of the drum bearings.If your machine is making a rumbling noise as the drum turns then you most likely have an issue with the drum bearings. It's possible that normal use can allow water to get to the bearings. Remove the washing machine belt and manually turn the drum. If you hear a rumble as you turn the drum then problem is the ball bearings. Remove and replace them with new ones.Not knowing if your Simpson is a direct drive through a multi -speed gear box or another method, that makes it hard to give you a definitive answer. In my experience with earlier Simpson Washing machines the agitator should lift off the Splined shaft in the bowl by gripping the bottom of the agitator on the bottom edge using both hands at 180o between them, basically one opposite the other and trying to lift the agitator off vertically straight up until it clears the splined shaft and above the top lip of the bowl at which time you can remove it from the bowl. Be careful it doesn't give way suddenly as you maybe leaning over the bowl and with the force you sometimes have to exert it might come up and strike you hard around your facial region. If the agitator either has never been lifted off or a long period of time since it was then you may have to "wiggle" the agitator whilst attempting to lift the thing of the drive shaft. Once you have removed the agitator clean and re grease the splined drive shaft with suitable grease, not too much only a smear as too much will melt and leach into the bowl and hence you'll have greasy marks on the washing. Clean out the female splined section of the agitator and again a thin film of grease should be rubbed on the female splines. Replace the agitator on the shaft and make sure it's fully the length of the shaft as it will ride up and attempt to come of the drive shaft whilst the machine is operating if it's not seated correctly. If you think there are / is foreign objects beneath the agitator that seldom happens but sometimes it can with small articles. The problem of noisy agitators can be caused by worn bearings in the drive gear box which in turn allows the agitator to move sideways a bit and that then can grind on the bottom of the bowl under the agitator or even allow a small piece of cloth to get under the agitator etc. I doubt the unit would be driven by a belt directly connected to another pulley on the agitator but only a sub bowl inspection can prove that. I've never come across a Simpson that doesn't have a 2 speed direct drive gear box for the agitator and the spin dryer.

Note:- if you aren't sure about the greasing i would recommend you to contact the company's technician.

Hope this solves your problem.Please rate me if it helped you.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE AGITATOR TO FIX THE PROBLEM OF GREASE /TRANSMISSION FLUID GETTING ON THE CLOTHING DURING THE WASH. IS THAT THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM?


The top blunt end of the agitator is threaded and when removed allows to agitator to come off. Lots of lint and old soap accumulate there and can pretty much "glue" the agitator in place. Once gone, you will see the drive shaft from the gearbox sticking up. I think you need to pull the gearbox to get to the seal. The gearbox is filled with nasty surpy "blackjack" grease and can be reused. You might get the repair kit from the manufacturer. That will include all the seals and "O" rings needed to keep the tub from leaking and the grease inside the gearbox.

Whirlpool washer (model LA9100XTW1)


Usually problems like this, you just have to take it apart and see. I can tell you a few things that will help though. It's not a deteriorating belt. In fact this machine doesn't have a belt at all, it's what is called "direct drive". The closest thing it has to a belt is a round piece of rubber in between a gear but that's near the motor and it's not possible for it to get inside the tub. In fact, it's hard for anything to get in there to stain clothes. Usually what causes this, is a build up of dirt, soap, mud, mold, etc that collects under the agitator and finally just gets enough to start releasing into the tub. It's pretty easy to take out the agitator and check under there, here's how.

To remove the agitator on a Whirlpool top-load washer, remove the solid cap or fabric softener dispense from the middle of the agitator. Then remove the white cap on the inside of the agitator. This might be stubborn, so just start off pulling gently and keep pulling until it comes out. Under that is a 7/16" bolt. Remove that and then the agitator will slide off the transmission shaft.

The only other option is removing the inner tub entirely, but that requires a special tool to get a nut off of the drive block, so that limits DIY repairs.
