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.

How do you replace the belt on an indesit moon washing machine? I have managed to take off the belt fromt he motor and the drum, but trying to get the replacement band back on it very hard - if it just...


Hello,
Most belts for washing machines are of the stretch type and they will take a lot of force to get on.Try to put on motor pulley first the try on drum pulley one side or other whichever feels easiest as you start it on pulley start turning drum pulley whilst holding the belt to stop it slipping,keep turning until it goes on then line up to centre of drum pulley.

Hope thet helps.

Tip

Error Code & in washing machines..


Error 7 means - “Motor jammed / Drum shaft jammed / Tacho generator fault”

Motor jammed

The first possible fault could be if the motor is trying to turn but the motor is physically jammed. This is likely to be rare. It’s easily tested by opening the door on the washing machine and spinning the drum by hand. If it moves normally and freely it’s clearly not jammed and this is not the fault.

If it is jammed or very stiff then making sure the machine is disconnected from the mains supply you can just take off the drive belt. You can then see if the motor is jammed or not because the shaft where the belt fits wouldn’t be able to be turned by hand.

Drum shaft jammed

This would cause the exact same problem in that the motor is trying to turn but because the drum was jammed it couldn’t. Again, easily tested by turning the drum by hand – if it’s free then it isn’t the fault. If it’s jammed or very stiff, removing the belt will let you determine whether it’s the motor or the drum that’s jammed.

Tacho generator fault

The way a washing machine detects the speed of the motor is via the tacho coil which is the last potential fault listed.

The tacho coil is on the outside of the motor attached to the end opposite the drive belt with 2 thin wires running from it. It’s a small coil that surrounds the shaft of the main armature where a small round magnet is attached. As the armature turns the magnet on the end of the shaft turns inside the coil. It’s then easy for the pcb to count each revolution of the small magnet and work out how many revolutions per minute it is turning.

Can't fit a belt to the Bosch washing machine. Is


There is no provision made for adjusting belt.
With the rear panel removed, fit the belt round the motor pulley first, and slowly feed it round the drum pulley, at the same time turning the pulley by hand..
Watch your fingers, it will be tight.
You will find it easier to do if you lean the washer away from you, this will give you more room to get your hands in..
Hope this helps you.

Turns on and makes noise but drum dosent move what is wrong . the drum wont move to wash or anything.


Check that the drum is free to move - by rotaiing it by hand. If it rotates very freely - it is likely you need a new drive belt. If the drum is very stiff - and won't move, it is possibly a faulty rear bearing. If both these checks are not the problem, it could be a motor or control board fault. It can be a cheap set of brushes needed for the motor - or a new control board.
It really needs investigation to identify which part is needed before replaements are ordered.
Turn off and unplug before investigating further.

HOW DO I FIT NEW BELT TO HOTPOINT WF430 WASHING MACHINE


The easyest way to fit these belts is to locate it on the motor pulley and as far onto the right hand side of the main pulley (viewed from the front of the machine) as possible. Hold it on the main pulley with a cable tie and rotate the drum anti clockwise by turning it from inside. The belt will be drawn onto the pulley and the cable tie will snap as it rotates. (Easy)

Cant get new drive belt to fit washing machine. right one but cant get it to stretch enough to fit from drum wheel to motor


this is a common problem as nowadays stretchy belts are used in order to avoid motor adjustment.
fitting requires some brute force. the way i do it is to put the belt on the motor pulley then start it as much as i can on the drum pulley. turn the drum pulley keeping force sideways to push the belt on and as you turn, the belt will go on
