Place it on the motor pulley and then guide it around the drum pulley. It will have come off for a reason which if you do not correct will cause it to come off again. Lay it flat on a table - if it does not lay flat - replace it. Check the pulley on the drum does not move from side to side. (problem with pulley or drum bearings)

not absolutely sure of your exact model, but most washer belts on put on by putting them on the motor the stretching to the tub pulley and holding it there while you move the pulley which then stretches the belt to fit for you.

Refit belt

There is provision made for tensioning the belt.
It is self tensioning.
Remove top cover and rear panel.
With the washer tilted away from you,(get someone to hold it for you)Fit the belt round the motor pulley first, then slowly feed it round the drum pulley, turning the pulley at the same time, watch your fingers as it will be very tight, and just keep going until the belt is on, if it slides off, just start again.
Good luck.

Washing Machine Belt Bosch WFF20

Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

You asked,
The belt has come off my Bosch WFF 1800 washing machine and I'd like to try and refit it - what should it go around?

The belt did not just come off! there is a reason it came off!
You may want to put it back on. But the problem may not be just the belt.
Sometimes the belt comes of prematurely due to another problem in a Bosch. You bough the top of the line machine and it deserves the top of the line service.
Or you may find your self paying twice for a job that cuold have been done once the right way!

Please save your self some money and get service on this particular machine!

Bless You,

You are welcome to write me and let me know how it goes.

Please give me a good rating for this fine advice I just give you, as i would my brother.
