Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

You should not have to stretch the belt to get it on.
You should be able to release the tension and slip it on! if you can not and have to stretch it on, you are missing some step.
And may damage the belt or machine!
My advice do not force it!
Better call service or you may be repairing it again or the belt again soon!
I like my machines to run fine and last long! proper is better!
I hate to spend good money twice. Don't you?

Bless You,

Please give me a good rating for my fine money saving advise. before you sign off..

Thank You

My drum does not turn,the belt is still attached but has slipped off the round cog and has got stuck.I have tried pulling the belt out and trying to place it back on to the cog but the belt is to tight.I...

The belt is designed to be tight as it is self tensioning,the best way to do it is to remove both the top cover and the rear panel.
Tilt the washer forward and get someone to hold it for you,
fit the belt round the motor pulley first, and slowly feed it round the drum pulley turning the pulley at the same time. it will be tight, so watch your fingers, you can line the belt up properly once you have it round both pulleys.

Washes fine. However, belt comes off in cspin

If it is a toothed cog on motor you need to make sure its on okay,also if the drum pulley is loose or bearings gone/noisy this will cause it to fall off.

Oil leak

If you have that old of a Kenmore washer than takes a belt, I would seriously think about getting a newer machine. If it is indeed the old style, check to be sure any wires didn't come off the wig-wam. Plus the brake has to be on the stud or it will not release the brake. The little bit of oil that has leaked out is not significant unless about a half a cup has leaked.But it involves removing the transmission. If it is the newer direct drive and you replaced the motor coupler, I suspect it could have broken one of the plastic drive cogs. They can split when you tap them onto the shaft. Put the new plastic parts on very hot water for a few minutes to expand them a little. They will go onto the shafts a lot easier. Or buy the coupler that uses the metal insert. They have less of a chance breaking during the install. Also, the same deal with the oil. If it's just a small amount, don't worry about it. The transmission needs removed and the top cover taken off to put gear oil in. If this helps, please rate my answer. Thank you.

Agitator problem on ALW780QAW Amana

I have this same model and although I'm not sure what your problem could be, I do know how to remove the agitator. Get a new repair guy because you just pull up on the agitator to remove it. It is just pressed onto a cogged drive at the bottom. I read on the Internet somewhere that if you do lots of heavy loads, the agitator can slip on the metal cogged drive. So I would suggest that you pull straight up on the agitator and clean off the cogged drive and inspect the underside of the agitator to see if the corresponding grooves are worn down from slipping. You might run a cycle with the agitator out and see if the cogged drive is turning.

I imagine you've bought a new machine by now? The plastic gearcog is the clutch housing. The arm that clicks is part of the brake lever. On these models, the brake lever is supposed to hold the clutch in place during the wash cycle so that it slips in both directions to get a forward and reverse wash. On spin, the lever moves away releasing the clutch and gearbox brake and allowing the bowl and agitator to spin together. The brake lever wears and allows the gearbox to slip during the wash cycle. When this happens, the clutch housing will "ratchet" past the brake lever tongue. this causes the "clicking" noise in 1 direction.

AEG LAVAMAT 74620 Update Gears on the fill tray have jumped. The primary and idler have to be installed correctly and are fool proof but the third, half gear, needs setting. Can you please supply pic or...

Found this on another site ( posted by Dave in Jan 2009:

This is one of those things where a picture would be worth a thousand words, but as I can't put pictures on this site, the words will have to do!
- Turn the orange cog anti-clockwise as far as it will go, (putting the nozzle to direct the water to the conditioner drawer)
- Look closely at the orange cog and you'll see that the last-but-one tooth at each end of the row is shorter than the rest. Looking from above and standing at the front of the machine, I call the rightmost tooth on this cog number 1, the short tooth number 2 etc. (my cog has 17 teeth)
- Position the white cog so that (looking from above) the leftmost tooth on the top (incomplete) row of this cog is between teeth 2 and 3 of the orange cog. This should be such that if the white cog rotates anti-clockwise it will turn the orange cog.
Now the difficult bit:
- The shaft that the yellow cog fits on has four vertical 'webs' running down it. Look closely and you'll see that one of these is bigger than the other three. As you would expect, if you look carefully at the centre of the yellow cog it has three small slots and one bigger one spaced around the hole.
- This shaft can be VERY CAREFULLY rotated if you pull it gently upwards against it's spring and wiggle it while twisting it. NEVER force it, the cogs underneath are VERY fragile. If it won't turn, just let go, and try again.
- Look again at the white cog, and you'll see that two of the teeth on the lower (complete) set of teeth have no slot between them, they make a tooth that is 'double width'.
- Look at the yellow cog and you'll see that it has a 'double width' slot on it's lower row.
- The challenge is to rotate the yellow cog's shaft so that you can fit the yellow cog on it, aligning the double-width slot on the yellow cog with the big tooth on the white cog. This is just a case of trial and error, but is the key to getting everything back together.

The yellow cog only ever turns clockwise and the white cog is a clever bit of engineering allowing AEG to move the nozzle (orange cog) backwards and forwards across the five positions.
The yellow cog turns the orange cog anti-clockwise until it runs out of teeth, then the white cog turns the orange cog the other way.
After a full rotation of the yellow cog, the orange one has moved clockwise to the stain-treatment position and the by-pass beyond, then anti-clockwise back to the conditioner position.

Washer will not agitate but will spin

It sounds like the plastic inside the agitator cog are worn. The smell is the plastic cog turning but the agitator not turning.

Take off the top of the agitator. If any screw are available remove them. If not grab the agitator from the bottom and yank off. Unscrew the agitator drive cog and inspect underside of agitator. Go to an appliance repair shop and reorder a new one. Between $15-30.
