Belt replacement I would like to know how to replace the belt on this machine. I have it, but it won't simply fit over the pulleys, so I gather there is a specific way to fix it. Can anyone help me?

The washing machine won't spin

If "won't spin" is your only symptom, then the most probable problem is the belt. It could be broken or it could simply have slipped off the pulley. You can get replacements at just about any appliance repair place or even an auto parts place. Simply measure the old belt with a flexible tape and get a replacement. Replacing it on the pulleys is simple. Loop it over one pulley and then partially loop it over the other pulley as far as it will go and then rotate the pulley to work the belt all the way on. Wala! Good to go.

Belt coming off

Yes , in due course the belt can be worn out of the edges and so can SLIP through the pulley when there is load. Examine the belt carefully and check for the wedge damage, If so replace the belt, However if you have a problem to source, then you can try and use an emery paper to roughen the belt , clean the pulley, check on the alignment of the motor and main pulley and if the belt is slightly loose you can use some insulation tape on the pulley as a test solution before you source the right belt , so as to increase the diameter of the pulley to stretch the belt.

How to replace the belt on a whirlpool duet washer

To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and remove the rear panel.

2. Place the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the drive motor pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Replacing belt on washing machine


Welcome to Fixya,

in replacing a belt please follow this step:
  • turn off and unplug your washer.
  • hook the belt first in drive motor pulley. ( a slot where your belt take place on top of the motor and sure that the belt is in place firmly to the slot of the pulley.)
  • start to hook the other end/loop of the belt to the tub pulley in one side of the pulley (it is more efficient in starting to hook the belt from inside to outside rotation.)
  • and hold the belt and rotate inside the pulley of the tub slowly
  • dont let the belt slip outside the slot of the pulley hold it firmly with your hands
  • hold the belt, clip to the slot of the pulley
  • but don't hold the belt alone or don't hold the belt in between of the pulley.
  • hold the belt inside the slot of the pulley in the tub pulley and rotate slowly. until it fix to the slot of the tub pulley.

If you need further assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.

How do I replace the belt that makes the drum spin on a Hotpoint Ultima WF860 ?

The belt goes around the drum and onto the motor pulley. No need to loosen anything. Put tension on the belt and fit it onto the motor pulley by gently turning the motor and pushing the belt onto the pulley at the same time.
