The washer is noisy when it goes into the spin cycle. Is there a bearing in the upper part of the transmission assembly? If so, is it servicable? Is it easy to get to? I replaced the bearing in the lower part just above the pulley and clutch assembly already.

I have whirlpool and it start leaking from area above the gearcase. Any idea what can be the problem.
Answer Hello Arti. If leaking above the gear case, you will need to replace the seal 3968381, and the hub assembly 285709. Hope this helps.
