Direct drive washer transmission oil
« on: July 27, 2011, 10:38:19 AM »
After opening and replacing a part in the transmission, I need to replace the oil. Is there a suitable replacement other than the OEM oil (which costs about $26.00 for 16oz)that Whirlpool  recommends? Would automotive transmission fluid work? Or something else?

Thanks

Thanks AJ, I knew there had to be something else that would work instead of the OEM oil.
