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.

Have a Kenmore washer that will not agitate or spin water out. What is wrong with it?


does the motor hum? It is either a bad motor, clogged pump, or a bad timer

Our Kenmore top load model 22422 started having problems with the spin cycle. Once it gets to the spin cycle, it makes a terrible grinding like noise - it is not spinning. However it will drain if you let...


The double shaft motor does double duty. One direction for wash and another direction for spin. In wash mode the water stays put in the tub because the pump is running backwards. In spin mode the motors turns in opposite direction. This pumps the water out and spins the clothes dry. From what you have described the drive coupler is toast.

Need opinion on Washer repair


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.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22432100&pathTaken=partSearch

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

See the following Whirlpool Service manuals for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Assuming that it WILL spin, but not drain, the problem does point to either a pump or hose problem.

If you can hear the motor turning during the spin cycle, the pump should be working.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet and gain access to / check the pump.

If it will neither drain NOR spin, the problem points to the Lid Switch?

Kenmore washer want spin out allthe water buy a new water pump


If it is pumping out some of the water then the pump is probably okay and the problem is probably in the clutch or belt slipping not spinning the clothes fast enough.
