GE Profile WPSR3100WOWW knocking when in wash cycle

3 posts in this topic

Got a GE Profile WPSR3100WOWW it is knocking when in wash cycle (agitating).  It always makes some noise but it has gotten much worse.  When I went in there it has an oily burn smell.  Opened it up and it is quite oily on the bottom, not even sure where the oil would be coming from, seems fairly fresh.  Can't figure out where the oil is coming from.  Could it be the big metal thing (my technical term) under the drum?  I think that might be the transmission, seems like a fancy conglomeration of things to spin like that.

Yes, that model has a transmission (source of the oil) and it also has a slip clutch (which I would suspect is the source of the 'oily burn smell').
