I moved my washer and there is oil under it. It seems to work fine. No problems that I know about. Should I be worried?

I don't know the model. There's nothing on the front to tell me the model but it's probably about 5-7 years old. It doesn't seem to have any problems. It cleans and spins ok and all but there's this little bit of oil on the floor that keeps leaking. Only a small amount. I don't know if I should be concerned.

Some model# helps.

The only thing with oil in it is the transmission/gearbox. A few drips here and there won't hurt much but a puddle will evenually catch up with the tranny and it will fail. Most transmissions/gearboxes have a 5 year part warranty. Since the washer is guessed to be over that in age, might be best to keep running the washer until it quits and then make the decision repair or replace the washer.
