You have to put it on the motor pulley first, and then "walk" it around the larger pulley by starting it on one side and then pulling it on the the pulley by turning the drum.

How do i change the drive belt ?


To remove the belt use a long screwdriver. Put it between the belt (sideways) and the large wheel, lever the screwdriver to outside while moving the wheel in clockwise/anticlockwise depending upon where you put the screwdriver at left/right side. Reverse the procedure for putting the belt on the wheel. While putting the belt first fit it on the motor pulley.

I have a bosch maxx classic and I am attempting to change the rubber to no avail, is there a special tool to install the rubber to the drum, some advive would be awesome, seems more trouble than its worth


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this!)
The motor support bolts should be loosened if you have not done so already and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I just bought a GE front loader 4.9 cubic 26 4442 model am I going to have trouble with putting a smaller load in? I bought it at Sears and the sales lady did not know much I went in to get an Lg 4.cubic...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France, Sun evening 18:13.

If I understand you correctly you are worried about putting LESS than 4.9 cubic into the machine? You do not need to! The problem comes when people try to stuff MORE into the machine than it is designed and capable of handling.
You can put a pair of socks in and they will wash perfectly. It's just a very expensive way to do just socks though ;-0)
(sorry about alternate spelling- I'm English as you can see from the top!)

Good luck with your new machine when it arrives.

How do you replace the belt on a GE wwse5240g washer?The motor will not move without it being out of place to put the belt on. Does the pulley move?


Hi,

The easiest way to install a new belt for a GE washer of your model is like putting on a bike chain.

**First unplug the unit.**

Then remove the front panel if you haven`t already.

Now rap the belt around one side of the motor pulley then get it started on the drive pulley. Hold the belt in place while spinning the drive pulley (watch your finger`s the edges are sharp and when the belt slips on it`s very tight...pinching could occur) and the belt should slip in place. You don`t remove the motor or even loosen it, it`s not necessary.

Good luck

I am having trouble replacing my washing machine belt.


Make sure that yo have the correct belt. I am sure that you have already done this. It sound like the drum it stuck. Make sure the drum will spin. Also without the the belt on make sure the motor will work on its known. See if this will help
