Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Normally on a top loader such as yours, these symptoms are an indication of a broken motor coupling. The coupling is located just behind the drive motor and couples to the gearcase (or transmission). The oil you mentioned may be coming from the gearcase. They can leak at times. This may be a sign the gearcase is beginning to fail, or....maybe not. I would clean up the oil and replace the motor coupling, first. Click on the following link for step-by-step instructions:
If you need assistance in locating parts, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the wash tub opening under the lid), and I can provide that information for you.
When you disassemble the washer, a tell-tale sign of gearcase failure will be signs of oil spray marks on the interior cabinet walls. If the washer has gotten to this stage, it may be a good idea to replace the gearcase as well. If the only indication you have is a few oil spills on the floor, try running the washer for a while with a piece of cardboard under the gearcase to see if the problem persists. The reason I suggest this is because I have seen signs of leakage in these gearcases before, cleaned up the spill and never had another problem. Its much easier to replace the coupling first. I hope this information is helpful to you. Let me know how things go, and if you need further assistance.
