Can this smelly washing machine be saved?

Recently our GE washing machine* has started to smell like grease. The machine itself (so far) is functioning--it fills, it agitates, it rinses, it spins, it empties. However, each time it is run there is an overwhelming smell of grease.
I have done some online research and think perhaps it is the gear case, but I do not know for sure.
The machine is probably less than 5 years old, but it came with the house we bought 2 years ago, so I assume if there was a warranty that it does not transfer.
I know you are not my repairman, but if you have some experience with this sort of thing, perhaps you can let me know whether this is an easy/inexpensive fix or whether I need to start looking for its replacement.
* GE model WBSE2090A0WN, in case it helps.
