Either Maytag or Ge or older than 87. Inspect pumps and pulleys before buying a belt to save a trip. If the wear isnt too bad a part number is on the belt and bringing the belt will save a trip too. Replacing the belt, first lace it on the pump and motor and finally the large drive pulley in the center, it will be easier.

We have a Whirlpool LEC 8858 EQ1 and we think the motor is bad but we can't get down to it because of the fan. How do you remove the fan?


Hi,
Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.
Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.
Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.
Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.
Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

How do you install a new belt? its hard to fit around !!


Youmust loosen the motor bracket bolts and this will allow the motor to swing. Put belt on the motor pulley and feed the belt onto the large drum pulley and at the same time turn the drum pulley so that the belt pulls onto the pulley groove. Put some tension on the motor to tension the belt - not too much tension though. Holding the motor & belt tension, tighten the motor bracket bolts - job done. Should take no more than twenty minutes to complete.

The belt from an Indesit washing machine broke a wire


The wire you refer to is an earth wire, it has probably pulled of the motor or the frame of the m/c.
If you can't see where it came from, don't worry too much, all you need to do is fasten it to a metal part of the m/c so that is is making a contact to earth.
I assume that you can get a belt o/k
Make sure that the drum and motor are free before you fit new belt.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke


My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

Fan belt broken?


The motor bracket is broke, which allows the motor to "jump" causing the belt to come off.
