This is a six year old washer that I have already replaced the coupler on twice and the lid switch once. Recently it is now making a loud banging noise during the spin cycle. This definitely sounds mechanical and I noticed oil leaking from the trasmisson case when I went to investigate. I had initially thought the coupler was going again but it is intact.

Any suggestions on troubleshooting? I currently have the motor and pump off but I was reading I need a tool to remove the transmission. Any instructions or help would be much appreciated.

Also if the transmission is going, how much am I looking at to replace it?

Thank you in advance

Oil from the tranny is not a good sign, however see if the noise could be a knocking sound from a worn out drive block letting the spin basket ride over the top of the ears of the spin tube, see if the spin basket seems to be loose when the washer is off...

I'm not familiar with how tight it should be to begin with. When I checked with the washer off it would not rotate more then a few degrees left or right but the whole basket would wobble very easily. I am guessing this is by design?

Just a note, I still have the motor and pump off it so the tub is probably slightly off balanced from that but it still seems really loose. I am able to push the tub in any non-rotational direction very easily and it does spring back slowly. It doesn't seem right to me. How do I check to see if the drive block is worn out?
