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

My neptune washer smells like rubber burning when i wash clothes


Hi
Older top load washers use a belt to drive to transfer the energy from motor to drum. However, if the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning “rubber” smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer.

The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer. Remove the old belt & remove the bolt holding motor. Now remove the motor, remove & replace the 2 plastic isolators with the new ones supplied with the belt on the motor spindles. After re-installing the motor & bolt adjust the new belt.

Please post back for any further assistance.

if you have gotten that far your good
now try to look at the motor it sounds like your belt might be a lil off track on the mortor shaft
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

I cannot get the drive belt back on.


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!!!
