Kenmore Model 110.92586210 Transmission gear oil leak

I have a Kenmore Model 110.92586210. The transmission has leaked some gear oil. The machine is still working okay, but I want to replace the gear oil. How do I refill the transmission with gear oil and replace the seal?

You have to remove the transmission and disassemble the clutch assembly. If it is only a very small amount, maybe just a drop or two, just let it be.If it is leaking quite a bit, you can bet not only the transmission seal is leaking, but also the center shaft seals are going bad as well. The transmission doesn't hold very much oil and quite a bit has to leak out before causing problems.

Seal a round shaft of transmission leaking what oil does the transmission require


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washer.

See the following Whirl[pool parts list for their commercial washers although the consumer models use the same transmission and parts.

The part you need is probably the 3349985 Seal, Gearcase
Cover, a relatively cheap part.

I've found that basic 80-90 weight non-detergent gear oil ( available at auto parts stores) seems to work well. It's certainly less expensive than the gearcase oil from Sears.

Oil driping from motor assembly puddling under


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/index.action

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

It's quite possible that the cover plate on the transmission is leaking.

Pulling the transmission and taking the cover off is a bit of a messy jobv but not too difficult. It holds about 15 oz. of 80-90 weight gear oil.

See the following for how to pull the transmission.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137&osCsid=4abf73fe1a2397664d30a764bcbf56b4

You don't have to remove the tub to pull the transmission.

Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft), remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 14 - 15Oz of oil

If the top of the case is leaking, you might try a gasket / sealer available at most auto repair / parts shops.

While you have the top off of the transmission, you might also want to check the condition of the plastic parts in the transmission itself.

Following is the Whirlpool / Kenmore PDf on how the transmission works and the parts inside it.

MOdel 110.92579110 leaking water out bottom of


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.92579110

LEAKING:

See the Sears site sub-components for the agitator, basket and tub. It's possible that one of the gaskets or seals has worn over time.

I'd also pull off the cabinet and check the hoses leading to and from the pump. It's also possible that the pump is leaking.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

The illustrations also show how to remove the transmission.

OIL

The black oil / fluid that you see is likely coming from the transmission.

Since it seems to be "spraying" around the inside of the cabinet, I'd assume that it is leaking from the top seal between the transmission and clutch.

See the following for a parts breakdown of Whirlpool top load direct drive washers.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

If you look at page 15, you'll see a Seal, Gearcase Cover. It is possible that that is the cause of your transmission leak.

The rust on the bottom of the transmission may (hopefully) be simply caused by the water leak.

I'd remove the gearcase cover (8 bolts) in order to check the gearcase cover seal, and to check the oil level. The Whirlpool transmission takes about 15oz or 80-90 weight oil.

Kenmore (Inglis) washer leaking oil model 110.4826081 serial 2EE288532 year unknown


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.

See the Whirlpool parts list for their commercial washers, the consumer model is essentially the same.

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

The problem is likely either the transmission cover or the gearcase cover seal or the spin pinion seal.

Following is a good description from GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission. http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

When you pull the transmission, you should be able to tell where it is leaking.

In order to pull off the cover, pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft, remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 16Oz of oil
