use white thin rope wrap it 3 to 6 times... it will stop the tran oil from escaping through agitator neck... use a long bristle cleaner to clean the inside of the agitator... the bristle is similar to a babys bottle cleaner...if your clothes are pickingvup tran oil use a degresser and clean everything... you must clean everything that has tran oil...Problem solved ...

The inner tub has no seals, it's full of holes. Only a problem with the outer tub could cause a leak.

I was wondering....would the inner tub (basket) have seals, gaskets, or something inside it that has worn and causing the leak. I'm not refering to the tub seal of course, which is not part of the inner basket..so maybe replacing the basket might fix the problem??

I would replace the transmission. Water in the gearbox is not good.

I was thinking the same thing, how can water go down into the transmission. Maybe it has an escape route somehow to prevent damage in such case that seal fails is what I thought.
But with everything out and as I was about to take tub seal out I noticed the separation between drive shaft and tub shaft.noticed rubber around drive shaft that was worn. I poured water in there and out it came down the bottom, through the tranny. No oil has ever been noticed.
Shame that with everything else working perfectly I have to dispose of a $600 washer due to a little rubber seal. I tried improvising by using plastic to prevent water from going up there but didn't work. Any ideas??, other than new tranny.

I doubt that is the source of your leak. While the agitator shaft seal can fail and water can get in between the agitator shaft and spin tube, the only place it can go from there is into the transmission gearbox, which is already full of oil. There's nowhere for it to come out unless the oil fill seal is compromised but then you would have oil everywhere. If your 100% sure this is the problem and water is somehow coming back out of the transmission somewhere, the transmission is not serviceable, no parts available unless you improvise.

Well, restarting a new thread because i now know where leaking is coming from now and question is now different. Still dealing with a water leak but it is not coming from the tub seal, water pump, or water hoses. As the the tub fills an d as the water comes up it goes under and up the agitator and agitator coupling, then up the shaft.
So basically there is the shaft where the agitator coupling inserts into (maybe it has another name, not fMiliar with part names) .Then there is the shaft where the tub nut, washer and split ring go on. The water is going through between these two shafts and coming down the middle of the washer towards the bottom and landing on the big pulley. Hopefully this makes sense. I'm not sure how there can be a seal or something between the two parts; anyone had a similar experience? Ideas and suggestioins are greatly aopreciated.
