leaking from motor area
Expert:  John replied 2 months ago.

Thank you. If the leak is coming from between the motor case, it's just a matter of removing the top half, and replacing the gasket. If the leak is around the drive shaft, where the various tools hook on, it requires the complete gear disassembly to access and change the shaft bearing. This job is best done by an experienced appliance technician.
