I would check to see if you have an unsecure (loose set screw which pulley in not rotating properly) or defective (bent, broken or unbalanced; unlikely) pulley. Also, ensure your motor is secure (bolts, not loose) and motor-shaft is not bent for some odd reason (very unlikely).

Also, are you sure you're installing the belt correctly per model diagram? Did you take off the pulley to install belt?

It sounds like the spring in my washer has broken. It made a loud sound during a cycle and now the basket is completely off balance and barely moves. I was wondering if the spring is worth fixing or if...


This could be an easy fix if the counter weight came loose from the top of the tub shell which is a common problem. Pull the unit out from the wall and removed the back panel to inspect the counter weight, spider pulley and belt. If the counter weight is not broke 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. The belt is easily replaced once you know the below procedure:

1. Place the belt around the center of the motor pulley stretching the belt to the spider pulley leaving no slack in the belt.

2. Keeping the slack out of the belt, place the belt on the outside rim of the spider pulley as much as the belt tension will allow you to do so.

3. Keep the tension on the belt and slowly rotate the spider pulley counter clockwise until the belt is completely on the spider pulley.

Rotate the spider pulley several times to make sure the belt stays in the center of the spider pulley. If the belt is not centered after several revolutions you need to remove the belt and reinstall it after moving the ribs of the belt on the motor pulley in the direction which centers the belt. If it was my unit I would fix it unless you have to replace the outer tub shell (approximately $300.00 for parts only).

What stops the drive belt coming off its pulley?.


Hi, The belt is held to the motor by a series of grooves and then around the big pulley. If everything is in alignment, the belt stays centered on the pulley. If the pulley becomes loose or the bearing shaft it rides on go bad, the belt will not stay on and it needs to be seriviced. Hope this helps.

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.

Are the two pulleys lined up with each other? Is the belt tight when installed? Make sure the motor is firmly attached at it's mounting. Is the drum or motor pulley hard to turn by hand? Make sure that neither pulley is wobbling or loose on it's shaft. Hope that some of this helps!

Electrolux front loader.EWF1090 i have the replacement belt but am having trouble fitting it. belt seems too tight. is same as the roken one. any suggestions?


put it on the small pulley first, then hold it on the large pulley with your hand and slowly turn the big drum, ensuring the belt stays on the big pulley as you move it. line up where you place the belt on the small motor pulley with the drum or it may slip off again.

I need to know how to install the new belt


The following link explains how to install the belt on a Whirlpool Duet front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3059652-drive_belt_installation_whirlpool_duet

This is an easy process, but it may take some effort to get the belt on the pulley. It is designed for a tight fit in order for the belt to stay in place on the tub pulley with no play in it. There is no tensioner and you do not loosen any motor mounts. Just make sure you hold the belt tightly in place with your hands and turn the entire tub pulley (like a steering wheel) in a clock-wise direction. The belt will stay on after you turn the pulley far enough for it to grip and stay in place.

If you have not purchased a replacement belt yet, the part number for the model you have this listed under is 8181670.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
