It appears your tensioner pulley has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My front loading Neptune model mah3300 quit spinning. When I opened it up I found the drive belt laying on the bottom of the cabinet along with quite a bit of dirty water.


the drum bearings and seal ar shot

replace them the belt and thats that

open the machines front and check for drum play if it moves up and down and side to side then the drum seal went and then the bearings rotted in the last few months ive seen branded generic machines with bearing and seal faults caused by bad seals and not oiled at fit bad rubber quality etc
sometimes you need to look for a 'maker' that makes it instead of a factory that prints them out and brands per order of so many of the same machine
half baked and full of software and hardware flawes

i see more and more of this multibrand madness,.. and poor east quality control???

dont pass with me for sure

How to refit a belt on a bosch classix washing machine 05


if you have the right size of belt then i can guide you how to replace, i personally had not seen the machine and i presume you can do it.first get a tough plastic shopping bag and put on a safety glove. take the power plug out of the wall socket, first put the belt on the big wheel now to put the belt in small wheel, take the shopping bag through the belt and place the belt on the pulley with the shopping bag area under the pulley while you hold the two ends of the bag not to put your hand nearer the pulley, now with the help of another hand gradually turn the big wheel holding carefully and with the shopping big to act as a slippery material helping belt to move in the smaller pulley track. you may have to apply a little strength but ensure that your hands or finger does not get in between the pulleys and the belt at any cost.
once the belt fits in the pulley remove the plastic shopper and turn the bigger pulley a few rounds to check every thing is ok.
congratulations now you had successfully installed the belt.
hope this helped you

Grinding washing machine agitator


more than likely the pump is the part that is making the noise. You can verify this by leaning the machine back where you can see the pulleys, your pump will be the one in the back. Remove the belt and each pulley should turn smoothly. The part number for the pump is 35-6780

Maytag Neptue frontloading washing machine model MAH5500BWW stopped spinning (machine is about 15 years old). I opened up the back and saw the drive belt was thrown. Reinstalled it (perhaps badly) and...


i would say you have a warped main pulley, run the machine in spin,watch it early to detect any wobling in the belt should be no sideway movement. also check main pulley is tight with no lateral wobling.

Belt is rubbing and keeps popping off the wheel in the back, what would cause it to rub?


my quess would be the big pulley in the back is warped or is loose.

i recommend replacing both belt and pulley. One of my recent customers had the same trouble, once i replaced the parts it worked perfectly.
goto http://lartoday.com/order_parts.htm to look up your model number, research the parts and order them. if you needs assistance. send me you model number and i will look up the parts for you.

Dryer makes noise when turning like bearings going or belt squeek


Hi,
check the following -
It's noisy
If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel

Rollers
Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. 


Idler pulley
Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. 


Glides
Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. 


Rear drum bearing
Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.


Blower wheel
Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

good luck.....

Smoke coming from back of washing machine and a burning rubber smell


You may have overloaded the washer and the belt drive system could not handle that excess mass.. The smoke and burning smell is a belt melting while trying to rotate the drum.. I would unload it .. gain access to the drive mechanism ( probably via an access panel in the back but may not be.. - brand and model specific).. and then check for damage to the drive belt.. You may look at the pulley system and look for burnt black from melted belt on it.. You could also have a clog in your pump that the belt drives but can't ( because of that clog) and therefore the belt rubs over the pump pulley and melts.. Could be any one of those things.. Hope that helps..

I have a different suggestion based on my washer's similar problem. If the black stuff is powdery and localized at the back of the unit, more than likely the culprit is the drum pulley itself is warped, causing the belt to chafe against the drum. The black powder is rubber residue from the scraping of belt on plastic. No need to replace unit. New belt and new pulley run about $70 each.
