Question Washer leaking oil
Model Number: WLW3000SALWH   Brand: Hotpoint   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Three or four washes ago I noticed a slight grinding sound from the washer - especially when spinning.
I noticed that behind it there was a spray line of oil on the wall - I know this is recent as the wall was painted less than two years ago. Inside the back of the washer there is a matching spray line of oil.
I haven't been able to get the washer all the way out to clean thoroughly inside and locate the source of the leak which is getting spritzed around when it's running - but mentioned to a mechanically adept neighbor who thinks it's the transmission and thinks I should replace the washer.
I'd prefer to repair if feasible - it seems it might be just a gasket...

I've stopped using it to hopefully preserve internal parts that might survive oil loss alone if they don't move.
My question is - might it worth pursuing the repair option or is something like this a hopeless case? I didn't find any other forum posts about oil leaks. I'm not very mechanical but might have someone else lined up to look at it.
