Customer: Thomas from Lee's Summit, MO

Oil coming out of machine, pulley was throwing it everwhere

took motor lose and belt lose first, then took pulley off from the tub shaft, then made a big mistake, I took and pulled the lower shaft seal. lucky I had a pan to catch the oil about half a gallon. After that I could not find away to put oil in the gear box, so I took the drum out and that didn't work but it was a good thing I did because the inside drum was rusting so I spend money on the seal for nothing. Had to buy a new washer. If I ever did it again I would turn the whole washer up side down so the oil could not run out and I would put the oil in the hole where the seal was. lot of work for nothing.
