Older kenmore washer teransmission oil replacement

Did they really design this gem with no Refill or drain? Being totally inexperienced with such technology, I left the machine on its side while replacing the motor. The oil drained, likely from weak seal.. lost about 1/2 liter. There appears to be a machined drain plug at a low point in the transmission casting but it seams to need a socket or special tool that I have never seen. I really dont want to start the machine with out replacement...any advice?

The vent on top is where they always leak from and I have a running experiment with this as my whirlpoot bled to death 4 years ago and I have not replaced the gear case yet, I think it is quieter now too. Word of advice. A replacement is around 150 bucks and right now there is 20,000 new gear cases out there that are defect sitting in stores and warehouses, I would by a rebuild at 75% of that price and have piece of mind. You have experienced the motor replacement so I won't discuss that but for a gear case you would have to get either a 7/16 or 1/2 inch deep well socket with an extension to remove the agitator carefully not dumping the little pieces, dogs that allow agitation. Once removed you will see a floating metal clip and a plastic catch to pull off. Then instead of laying machine on its side pull it out two feet and tilt it back to work on it. Oh and the gearcase has three 1/2 inch bolts to remove where it slides out and then swapping out the clutch package.The clutch has five pieces and you only need three. See this link for a picture of the pack.

When replacing there is a flanged clear piece that snaps into the metal clutch base and then slides on the gear case spindle followed by a wire snap clip that when the one straight end is inserted into the hole a flat head screw driver can guide the circular part around until the final push to snap it in. Next is a c clip which aligns with a grove on the spindle and finally a cover and the rest is a reversal of the removal.

Front shock oil running all over

Unless you've had your front fork assembly serviced recently, I'd guess you've got blown oil seals in the top of the sliders on your forks. If someone serviced your forks lately, they may have put in too much oil and blown the seals. You'll have to drain the forks, disassemble the fork tube from the lower slider and replace the seal in each leaking tube. Refill the fork tube with the designated about of oil for a "dry" refill. Use this figure because the fork tube was disassembled. When you simply drain the forks without a disassembly, you cannot get all the oil out and the refill quantity is less.

Good Luck

How do you change oil in 94 beretta

Warm the engine then remove the engine oil drain plug and let the oil drain into a container. Be careful, the oil may be hot. You would normally replace the oil filter at the same time. Spin it off (you may need an oil filter wrench) and spin a new one on. Replace the drain plug and refill the oil pan plus 1 quart for the filter (usually a total of 5). Start the engine to fill the new filter and you're good to go. You may want to check other fluid levels at the same time and don't forget to grease the fittings on the steering linkage.

How do i replace the drain hose on a kenmore 700 washer?

If this is a Kenmore TOP LOADER washer, the drain hose(s) can be accessed for replacement by removing the exterior washer case. This is usually the standard practice for these washers as the back panel is not designed to come off. Tipping the washer backwards to access underneath is also not recommended, because the gearcase (transmission) contains oil. The oil can leak out through the breather hole on the top of the transmission, so these washers should remain in the upright position when servicing.

The following link explains how to remove the exterior washer case to access the washer interior components:

Once the washer case is removed, all the drain hoses are fully accessible and easy to remove and replace. There will be some residual water left in the lines, so you may need to lay down some old towels to keep the mess to a minimum. HINT: You can use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain line to remove excess water to prevent any cleanup.

If you have any questions about any procedures, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the washer lid) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore 110 washer fills and does the wash cycle but wont drain or spin. Totally shuts down after wash cycle. What do I need to replace

sounds as though the lid switch has gone bad, either that or the motor has lost the reverse winding on it.. most likely lid switch tho.
the lid switch is only "seen" by some older kenmore "110" series at the end of the wash cycle, or end of the rinse cycle. it purpose is to keep the unit from spinning if the lid is opened so no one looses an arm, etc.
generally the console on those machines hinges over backward so you can remove the cabinet top and 3 sides as a unit together..
the lid switch is under the machine top and isn't easily accessible without removing the cabinet.

Older style kenmore top load washer wont do anything....

This machine has an on/off switch built into the timer that is activated when you push/pull the knob.
Either something therein is worn or broken causing this switch to not function. I myself could probably fix this problem and have done so on occasion, but an inexperienced person might find it to be a challenge.
Replacing this timer is expensive unless you can find a used part somewhere.
