Please check if the pulley is going off track or if the belt is not of the same type used.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWA seems to be rubbing

I suspect that you have a leveling bracket come loose. Many of the Maytag washers also use a large concrete block fastened underneath to help balance things. Look to see if yours is this type. If so then the steel rod holding thinge that holds it in place may have come loose...should be easy to put back correctly but will require some muscle. Most of the Sears Kenmore units have springs that can come loos from their connections and require re hooking but I do not think you have this type of unit for a Maytag. Hope this helped.

2004 gx335 48c mower deck primary pto belt has broken twice new double pulley on rear nothing rubbing no noise


Is the belt overly tight? My mower was doing that to, turned out the belt called for was 1" longer then the belts i was buying for it, making the belt really tight and it kept over heating from rubbing and failing. I would run it for a while then shut everything off and see if the belt is hot, also check that the bearing are not hot, could be friction somewhere causing the belt to heat up and fail.

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

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    I have a Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine (GHW9100LW1). The washer stopped spinning, but the motor was going. I took off the back and noticed that the belt had come off and there was a lot of black...


    The first thing to determine is if the pulley is loose due to wear on the pulley or if the spin bearing in the outer tub is bad.

    Remove the belt. Make sure the nut holding the pulley in place is tight.
    Wiggle the pulley while shining a bright lamp on it.. is it loose on the shaft or is the shaft moving.
    If the shaft is moving.. outer tub needs to be replaced.. and in some cases this means the spin basket as well.

    If you remove the pulley..and the inside mating surfaces which are flat on two sides are worn or rounded off.. bad pulley.. the retaining nut may not have been tightened properly.. or it became loose up over time,

    However the black dust means the belt has been slipping ..some dust is probably normal due to age.. rubber breaks down..but a lot of dust means friction.. which means something is not turning as freely as it should.

    So it has to be a loose retaining nut, worn pulley..or worn failing outer tub bearing.. I am afraid it's more than likely the last one.

    Sears Parts Direct will have diagrams for your model..

    Best of luck

    Bangs and sqeels during high spin cycle, also there are plastic shavings in sink


    This could be an easy fix if the counter weight came loose from the top of the tub shell which is a common problem causing banging. Unplug the unit and pull the unit out from the wall disconnection the water hoses after turning of the water. Remove the back panel to inspect the counter weight, spider pulley and belt. If the counter weight is not broken you can reattach it to tub shell and retighten the bolts. If it is broke it is about $30.00 plus shipping. Inspect the spider pulley which is attached to the tub with the belt around it. If it is not broken, you can turn the pulley by hand to check the tub bearings for free movement. Make sure the belt is in good shape and attached to the motor spindle and spider pulley. If the spider pulley is broken you may have to order a new pulley. If you have to remove the spider pulley you may want to use a gear puller from an auto parts store to remove the pulley. If you turn the pulley by hand you should not hear scraping. If you do in could be the bearings or a screw is rubbing against the shell. If you have to replace the outer tub shell (approximately $300.00 for parts only). I would unbolt the bolts holding the shell and find where the tub or screw is rubbing so you do not have to replace the expensive shell.

    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.

    Starts will not move forward or backv belt is broken how do you change it can i do it without removing the deck


    No, the deck will have to be removed. You will also need to remove the stacked pulleys from the crankshaft of the engine. There are 2 idler pulleys in the middle of the belt path that will also need to be loosened in order to get the belt around them. You will need to put the new belt around the rear (transmission) pulley first, then work your way forward. Make sure to get the belt installed completely against the pulleys and not around the belt guides, as this will destroy a new belt very quickly. The 2 middle pulleys will be spring loaded. Mount the belt around them, then take the belt to the front. It may be helpful to engage the parking brake, as this will hold the tension off of the middle pulleys while you put the belt on the upper pulley of the front pulley stack. Reinstall the front stacked pulleys and release the parking brake. Carefully inspect the entire belt path. The belt should be tight, but movable. It should also not be touching anything except the pulleys. If all looks well, fire it up and test drive. If that goes well, reinstall the deck. The whole job should take an hour or two.
    Good luck!

    Noise, idler pully rubbing against middle blade


    Unless there is some other means of placing tension on the deck belt, I would say that the idler pulley does. If the idler pulley is on a pivot arm, there is a spring that typically is attached to the pivot arm, near the pulley, that attaches to a post or some other part of the deck, that creates the tension on the belt. Check the belt for proper tension.
