MVWC400XW2 approx 2.5 years old.

Has gradually been getting louder on spin and agitate, makes a creaking noise.

Tilted her up, noticed oil spots on floor, oil is dripping from transmission.

Hopefully creaking noise is oily belt slipping, not a bearing or something.
Is the W10330039 the latest replacement transmission?

It is pricey, is it possible to replace just the seal?

Anyone have the part number for a seal, and other information such as how to add oil, what type, etc?

Nope, the gearcase/transmission is a non serviceable unit, Need to replace the whole assembly.

Intead of new post going to chime in for advice.  I got a AMW in. belt is saturated with oil, stud bolt nut loose (spuge bolt is that the correct term).

The unit seems free,

I was going to get a new belt, that would be a good spare part to have anyway.

 

But thinking it probally has no oil in the gearcase and seal is bad.  Is there any place to check the oil level.  I see here it is unserviceable and take that as you cant change out seal or parts but wonder if it has place to check fluid level.

 

How many units are you seeing this problem on,  a few, alot, rare.  This is the new breed.  I have replaced several lid locks, and mode shifters already..

"Chiming in" is a euphemism for hi-jacking a topic.  Please start a new topic instead.
