how to grease a maytag wringer washer gear box? Answered


I would say use some engine oil but the link that RD gave was great

its hand powered correct? well then the gears should be exposed on the side where the crank is if it is not hand operated i suggest that you get plans off of google and find where the gears are according to the plans and then take off any covering and oil the gears

Go here.

Click on contact.   Then write an email to one of those two guys listed and ask them about it.

They'll want to know the model number so they can tell you what you need to know.

If you want to try something else then google "maytag wringer washer".

Thank you for your answer. I checked that first and got in touch with a Maytag technician who wanted paid for his help. I'm not willing to pay someone over the internet. Because I don't feel without seeing my machine himself, that he can truley find the fix for my machine.

Are you hearing noises that say "it's worn" and thinking that all the grease has disappeared somewhere instead?


the motor is laboring to move the agitator.
Also the head shaft did need lube and I know how to do that.
So I felt that the gear box under the tub needed lubed too. And I don't know how to get into it as there are no ports visable to shoot gear into.
