Recently, our clothes have come out with oil spots from the washer. I finally saw the immediate cause in the tub (please see attached picture). Where could this be coming from and how can I fix it?

Thanks,
Dale

picture is not very clear but i think i see oil coming out from under the agitator and if it is then its mostilkey the seal at the agitator shaft under the agitator, if this is true you would need a new gearcase

Thanks, sh2sh2. Yes, it is coming from under the agitator. How much and how hard is it to replace the gear case?
