Hi.

Asuming you have the correct belt, then you will really have pull and stretch it hard to get it on.

It is the case that the new belt wiill not appear to be the right size.

Just persist, mind you do not trap your fingers!!!

If the belt is coming off the pullies my be out of line .you need to put a straight edge across the two pullies to make sure they are level . And check there's enough tension on the belt .

Install belt on Amana top load washing machine


Use the correct sized belt!!

Loosen the Motor mounting Bolts. ( Do not take it off ) Now the motor assembly can be moved towards the opposite large pulley.

Replace the belt in this position and slide the motor to it's original position. You adjust it in such away so that, the belt is not too tight or loose!

there is a adjustment srew on the top left of the motro its hidden under things but its there
you can looses this and swing the motor
make sure you have it lined up on the motor shaft and it should stay aligned on the pully

How to replace the belt on a beko washer


Hithere.......the belt used on these machines is a stretch belt...ie...it will require a little determination to fit it......Isolate the electricity from the machine....remove the top lid.....remove the rear inspection panel...(5 screws) from the top of the machine offer the belt down to the motor pully...fitting it over the pully (middle of the motor pully)...bring the belt as far around the drive pulley of the washer as you can...then holding it in place gently turn the drive pulley this action will bring the new belt fully over the drive pulley...check and aling the belt in the middle of the washer pulley
BE RATHER CAREFUL NOT TO CUT OR LACERATE UR HANDS

Belt won't stay on the pulley


These belts are really sensitive. Try messing around with it. Making srue that the belt isnt coming off the big tub pully. You tub pully isnt loose is it. Make sure the bolt that hold the pully onto the tub is tight on. Make sure the pully isnt loose. Inspect it for any small craks where that boltt tightens up. If the pully check out ok. Check the small motor pully as well. Make sure that isnt loose or anything. Pull on it if if its loose then thats you problem.. Inspect both pullys good. I would assume belt is in good shape right? If both pullys check out ok, then i would try to get the belt on and just mess around with it, spin the pully and if you se the belt starting to slip off adjust it as you keep spinning the pully....hope this helps

WASHING MACHINE DRUM WILL NOT TURN


There is no adjustment provided for lining up the pulleys.
If it comes off then there are a couple of reasons that come to mind,the belt is too slack, the belt is worn,the drum is out of alignment with the motor pulley, caused by worn drum bearings, the motor is loose, a loose drum pulley, or you are not lining the belt up properly, overloading can also throw the belt off.
Hope this helps.
Plz leave feedback.

I cannot get the drive belt back on my Neptune washer


Its not an easy task but you have to barely get one side to hook or touch the pulley and then roll it on. When you get it started it should roll on pretty easily

How to replace the belt on a Samsung J845 frnt loader washing machine


If you stand in FRONT of the washer, leaning over the top, the drive wheel is underneath the main drive motor, on the RIGHT hand side.  Loop the belt over the drive motor wheel, then over the main pully, and it should be good to go!
