Belt slips on the agitator pulley

You can turn the agitator by hand and then it will finish washing. Will work for a week or two then will start slipping again. Replaced the belts three weeks ago.

If you have the tensioner laced backwards, it will do the exact same thing. Try pulling it the other direction and reinstalling the belt.

Repair a belt on a washing machine for a speedqueen


Remove the front panel by removing the three screws at the bottom of the panel and then tilting it up to unhook it at the top. Make sure the machine is disconnected from the electrical power - not just switched off but unplugged at the socket. Look for the belt between the electric motor and the main drive pulley of the agitator and also locate the belt tensioner which is a small pulley pressing against the belt under tension of a spring hook onto it. Pull and keep the tensioner away by hand to allow the removal of the belt starting at the motor pulley. Replace with the new belt by starting at the agitator pulley. Keep the tensioner pulley out of the way until the belt is fitted on both pulleys and then allow it to settle against the belt again. Do not adjust the spring tension and buy the correct belt from speed queen as it requires a graphite type belt. An ordinary vehicle v-belt will not work - repeat will not work. Replace the cover by hooking it in first at the top and then replacing the screws at the bottom.

My washer wont spin or agitate and there was a burning smell


Hi
Older top load washers use a belt to drive to transfer the energy from motor to drum. However, if the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning "rubber" smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer. The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer
To replace the belt carefully pry up on front washer top to release plastic keeper pins, remove 2 Phillips screws from beneath lower front washer panel, slightly lift upward on panel to release. Now remove old broken belt, push new belt beneath large tub pulley and put belt on small motor pulley. After this push back belt tension /idler arm, start belt on large tub pulley, turn tub pulley by hand to run belt on, release tension on idler arm. Replace front panel and lower top.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Sounds like a transmission problem. It's locked in agitation mode. When it is in agitation mode you can't turn the drum or move the agitator. I'd check that out.
