Re: How do you change the belt if it is slipping?

GN. This model does not have a belt, it's a direct drive washer. It could be a couple of things. Is this happening during spin? If so you may have a worn drive block or something as simple as something between the tub and basket. The clutch and brake assy. could be failing. It's hard telling without being there. I will attach a couple of pictures so you can get and back.

The agitator on my washer seems to be slipping or stripped. How do I get into it to see if it's loose or needs to be replaced?

On some washers, you may be able to tilt it to look under it. There should be a main rubber belt that drives the agitator and other components, see if there is any slack or looseness in the belt. It should be pretty tight. If it is not, you may look for documentation on how to tighten it or else you might consider a replacement belt in some cases.

The belt on my FEW 12 HOTPOINT FIRST EDITION has slipped off, the belt has worn it's self in to the metal part behind it. Is it not repairable or has the belt streched

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Belt is probably stretched. You will need to purchase a replacement.
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person if your's is a front loader!:-

The motor support bolts should be loosened 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.

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

How do you change the belt on a zanussi nexus fl 1082.iv got the top off and tryed to slip my hands down the back of machine to attach the belt to the motor and wheel,but just cant get the last bit on,and...

With the help of someone, tilt the washer forwards towards you, this will give you more room to get your hands inside to fit the belt, it is awkard, but can be done, I have done it this thay on many occasions, otherwise, it entails removing the rear half of the cabinet, not an easy job!!!!!¬.
Good luck.

Washer wont spin

You may have some small piece of clothing stuck in the water pump. Pull clothes out, empty water out, turn over and remove pump and check for obstructions. If nothing in there see if it is frozen from moving, if not belt may be loose by being streched. Replace belt if needed.

The washing machine belt will move to agitate, but will not move to spin. The spin action burns up the belt. This is an Amana LWA50AW

open rear cover , see if belt slips. then remove belt and rotate empty drum if its jam than drum bearings need to change. if drum is free then belt might be loose and needs replacement.

How di change the belt on a 2000 maytag top load washer?

HI. you may have a defective idler pulley. excessive bearing clearance can cause the belt to slip off at times. A worn belt will slip off as well. i suggest gaining access to the belt to inspect for damage. you can start by pressing in the middle of the longest straight run. It should deflect no more that one inch. also inspect the belt for cracks, frayed edges or other signs of excessive wear. if any damage or excessive looseness is found, replace asap. It could also be stretched.

((You can check the pulley by removing the belt and physically rotating the pulley, if the pulley has excessive wobbling or shifting, replace it))

Drum not moving around although sounds like something internally is moving around. Husband has taken back of and can't see anything obvious

Take the back off put washing machine on spin cycle making sure not to touch anything so you don't get shocked and look at the motor maybe the belt is loose or broken if it is loose just tighten via the spring adjustment or if is old washing machine belt may have streched and needs replaceing if motor don't move maybe needs rewinding and is cheaper to buy new washer.
