I have a 20yr old whirlpool stylemaster.

It goes through the cycles fine, except it won't spin.

I hear a humming groaning noise when it is suppose to spin but it doesn't.

The water drains and it will go through the rest of the cycle.

I looked at the bottom and it appears that there is some oil coming from the 'transmission'.
Is that the transmission? What do I need to fix it?
Here is a picture of it.

In your picture it shows your part number directly below were it says fsp, on bottom of gearcase! Or you can take gearcase apart and figure out what failed in the trans itself ,but can be time consuming and if you cant find transmission gut parts to replace them the transmission as a whole can be expensive and i dont know that its worth it with the age of washer!!! I would check for deals on new washers honestly!

ill look up that model to se if i can help

GREAT! There is a washing machine "used parts store" close by, I may check out and see if they have one I can get.

I also looked at my Kenmore series 80 and it uses the SAME transmission part, is that correct?

Yep. Probably needs timer like Reg said.

My seal kit suggestion was in response to this question.

I looked at the bottom and it appears that there is some oil coming from the 'transmission'.
Is that the transmission? What do I need to fix it?

Good point just assumed tranny with the oil leaking and groaning sound but after reading again and the humming sound specified id test it and run a jumper wire to make timer work and run that old money pit till it dies

Yes hard to follow, let me explain.

My original problem was with the whirlpool in the first post.

Conclusion was the transmission was gone.

I ALSO have a Kenmore series 80, something else was broken on that a relay part that wouldn't let it drain.

SO.... I looked at them both and found that they both use the SAME transmission!

I just finished snatching the good one out of the Kenmore and putting it in the Whirlpool and now my Whirlpool works perfectly!

I used a lot of resources on this site and the parts finder helped a LOT! Plus the video of changing out the transmission.

I just saved myself a bunch o money and now my wife is dissappointed we are not getting a new washer. :)

Maybe next time!
