If $T$ is an operator with compact resolvent and $S$ is any densely defined closed linear operator, then the orthogonal direct sum of $T$ and $S$ satisfies various Weyl type theorems if some necessary conditions are imposed on the operator $S$. It is shown that if $S$ is isoloid and satisfies Weyl's theorem, then $T \oplus S$ satisfies Weyl's theorem. Analogous result is proved for a-Weyl's theorem. Further, it is shown that Browder's theorem is directly transmitted from $S$ to $T \oplus S$. The converse of these results have also been studied.
