How to change a belt on a whirlpool ultamite care plus washing machine


Rear access panel off belt right in front of you. turn drum and pull old belt towards you fit new one by putting over motor spindle first, then feeding onto drum spider as you rotate it. Tension by moving motor on it's bolts (out for tighter, in for slacker) About 1/2" movement in centre of slackest part of belt.

THE DRYER DOES NOT WORK, IT DOESNT SPIN BUT MAKES A NOISE


richy wilson, the motor may be burned out. I think that the lid/door switch isnt the problem. If it is faulty, the dryer shouldnt do anything at all when started.
The first thing I would do would be to gain access into the dryer by removing the top panel and then the front panel. Check to see if the belt is still in one piece or severely worn.
You will probably need to test the motor. You can do this several ways;
1. remove the belt if it is in good shape.
2. check for obstructions in the blower fan housing (usually in the lower left corner. looks like a circle with fan blades throughout)
3.manually rotate the shaft of the motor, if it is stiff then you'll probably have to replace it.
4. if the motor rotates freely, try to run it momentarily with the belt removed. if it does rotate fine, then there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the drum itself. the idler pulley is usually a little wheel that holds the tension of the belt onto the drum.
5. try to rotate the drum by hand. if it is difficult to move, try to correct any problems with the rollers or idler pulley.
6. If motor hums but doesnt rotate on its own, even with the belt removed, yet you can turn it freely by hand, you usually will need to replace the MOTOR, or MOTOR START CAPACITOR.

If you have any further question, feel free to email me. If you do, try to include the model number of the dryer.

thanks,
mike

My whirlpool duet (Model # WFW8400TW02 )washer stopped working. the steel drum is not rotating and clothes are not getting washed. please let me know what could be the problem.. --Ritu


If this has a belt, then the belt may be broken or stretched out. Bad drum bearings can seize up and won't let the drum rotate anymore. A bad door switch can cause the machine not to run.

Front loader washer machine not rotating.


Fisrt, see if you can rotate it by hand, BOTH directions. It should have some resistance. If you can spin it and when you stop pushing it will turn a full turn, your drum belt is too loose. If the belt is good and tight, it will spin less than one half rotation, there is probably something blocking one of the wheels that the drum rides on.

Dryer drum won't rotate


if there is no air coming out of your vent on back of dryer then it would be likely your motor has gone out.

Whirlpool Ultimate care ii Dryer wont tumble


If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:
Belt,
Motor,
Door switch.

Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.
If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

Remove the belt,
Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing,
Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

Go here to see a diagram for your model:
one of two types. "H" or "J"

Dryer Drum not rotating


If warm air is still coming from the unit, but the drum is not rotating, it sounds like your drive motor is fine, but your drive belt is broken. Depending on you dryer model, these can be fairly easy to check, or may take a little creativity to get the dryer apart. Knowing your dryer model number would go a long way towards assisting further.
