washing machine gearcase oil

I'm going to be repairing the gearcase on a whirlpool direct drive washing machine - model WTW5505SQ1. I was wondering if car transmission fluid can be used to replace the gearcase oil?

No.....car transmission fluid is not considered a gear lube.

You would need to use a 90w or 75w90 gear lube.
