Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Front loader won't spin. Opened rear, found belt off, etching on plastic drum where belt wore and pulley "nut" worn and loose. Tried to replace w/ new belt, but it just keeps coming off.
Remove the pulley nut and pulley. The pulley should have a round hole with two flat sides that ride on a shaft. If the flat sides of this opening are damaged the pulley will not stay tight and will rattle. Try tightening everything down. If you can grab the pulley (like a steering wheel on a car) and turn it back and forth on the shaft, there shouldn't be any "play" in it. The whole drum should turn. If this is the case, replace the pulley and nut. I hope this helps you.
