NEED TO KNOW THE TYPE OIL IN THE TRANSMISSION OF WASHER


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!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.

Model# 110-503110/ Sears Washing machine, Ser.# 4045 Need to know what type and weight of oil to use in the gear box.


From everything I've read, top load, direct drive Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a 80-90 weight non-detergent gear oil.

Most likely non detergent since some of the parts in the gearcase are plastic.

Following is the Whirlpool service manual for these washers that might help.

Kenmore 8288100 will not agitate properly, i replaced the dog ears but that did not solve the problem. It also makes a loud noise during the agitate cycle


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. Sears has a parts list for model 82881100.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

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

It's hard to diagnose what "will not agitate properly" means. However, since you've replaced the dogs and are getting a loud noise during the agitate, try to isolate where the noise is coming from.

Remove the cabinet, see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

If you jumper the two outside pins on the lid switch you will be able to start the washer and listen to the agitating. (We used a couple of bunge cords to keep the back of the washer from flopping around)

When it begins to agitate, listen closely to the transmission. If the noise appears to be coming from the transmission, the problem may be in the agitate cam and / or gear in the gear box.

Look at the gear box diagrams on the Sears site.

We had a major noise problem with our top loader and traced it to worn agitate cams.

Pulling and replacing parts in the transmission is a messy job (14 - 15 Oz. of oil) but it can be done.

Following is how we replaced the cams.

Assuming that you know how to remove the cabinet, agitator (you don't need to remove the tub), pump, motor and transmission the agitator cam and follower use the same whirlpool part number 62580/01. This is a plastic set used to raise the agitate gear on the shaft.

I had the same problem with gear grinding and this solved it.

Pull the transmission.

Remove the clutch (the spring holding the clutch to the spin pinion is a bear to replace.

Remove the 8 transmission screws carefully, the transmission is full (16 oz.) of 80-90 weight oil.

Remove the transmission cover.

Pull off the spin pinion.

Push down on the agitate spring and remove the spring clip. Note where is attaches to the main shaft.

The two plastic agitate cam parts pull right off. Don't lose the washer on top of the cams.

Replace the cams, washer, spring and clip, pinion, oil (assuming you drained the oil first), cover and clutch parts.

Line up the transmission so that the release cam on the brake drum will snap onto the clutch spring retaining clip and put all parts back in the washer.

The basic tools are screwdriver, small socket set with up to a 1/2" socket, vice grips or good pliers (to remove and replace clips)

Kenmore washer Model 110 suddenly poured oil from the bottom--what happened? It lost oil and my mom continued to use it. We now smell something like burning rubber. The barrel still spins but could the...


You lost a seal in the gear-box, needs a new one, burning rubber smell is from the belt slipping and the gear-box being low on oil giving too much resistance on the belt.
Don't run it until you solve the oil leak and refill with oil

Thick Gear-like oil leaking from the bottom somewhere


looks like your washer is developing a leak from the seals in the drum thus allowing some water to seep into the bearings get it checked before the bearings run out completely
