Hi The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

Can I safely use my washer if I hear something metal scraping during spin cycle?


You can, but I wouldn't. The outer skin of the drum is made of plastic. If it is a coin, it could dislodge, get caught again in mid spin and punch a hole straight through the plastic.

Get a flashlight and look between the seal and the outer drum when you open the door.

During spin cycle it makes a high pitch whining sound and sounds like a button is loose in the tub


does it have a burning smell? is it belt driven? rather than direct drive. belt are known to emit a whinning pitch sound at times. could be bearings going out. and sometimes a pc of metal opr material can get stuck between hub and shell and make weird sounds?

Brand new. Load gets stuck on 14 minutes or some other time & repeats over & over. Wont finish cycle. We have to use the drain & spin to get the water out but then clothes are not rinsed well....


Sounds like you are probably doing a very bulky or real off balance load on a high spin speed setting. The washer is trying to get the load up to spin speed, but the load is too off balanced. Try the lowest spin speed setting for that load. If it makes it through that, then power machine back on and just push the spin speed button until the next higher speed shows up, and then the start button if you want to spin it out better. If it still didn't make it through the original cycle on the lowest spin speed, your load must be way too off balanced, like one coat that is saturated with water. If that is the case, you may even have to squeeze some water out of it by hand before you would be able to get the washer to get it up to spin speed.
