Had the same problem on a machine I worked on. Changed the belt... was burnt and broken. Second time I replaced the belt, I ran it through all of the cycles and listened to it on SPIN cycle.. Although it's spinning.. it's making an extremely LOUD noise... It's the Spin bearing that is gone out. When a load is put in, and in spin cycle, the bearing is oveloaded..(being dry).. and putting extreme pressure on the motor and belt. When the drum reaches a point where the bearing just won't spin, the belt stops, and spins on the motor pulley, wearing it through.. (And smoking a great deal).. until it breaks.. again. I believe the top "Spin bearing" is about 75.00 or so.. and a BEAR to replace. Hope this helps

I don't know how to get the belt on the small pulley

If the design of this unit is the water pump is in the front directly below the motor, you have to install one of the pump plastic legs between the belt. when installing new belt. There are torex screws holding the pump onto the motor. This is assuming your belt burnt off or broke and you are replacing the belt. The small idler pulley can be worked on by running the belt on the big pulley when reinstalling the motor Try not to stretch the spring for the idler pulley,
hope this helps

My Maytag A105 Washing Machine made a weird noise just as it started the spin cycle. When I opened the top lid, there was a burning smell and I could see some smoke coming out. I shut the lid again and...

This sounds like a belt burning. Something may have got caught in the pump and the belt is slipping and burning. You will need to drain all the water out first. Then remove the front panel. Tilt the machine back a little so you can reach the pump pulley and see if it turns freely. Your model has 2 belts and they both should be replaced at the same time. Adjustment on the pump belt is critical so the drive belt doesn't slip. If something is caught in the pump, whatever it is needs to be removed, or replace the pump.

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt tensioner...

take the belt off and carefully check to see if any of the pulleys are out of line and check to make sure they spin smooth and true check for bearing wear and noise in any of the pulleys cause it sounds like simply there is a pulley out of line

is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.

Broken belt . The belt broke on my ALW480DA Amana Washer. I can seem to be able to replace it becuase thre are four posts in the way holding the water pump housing. How can I change the belt.

you need to remove 3 or 4 bolts out of pump mount and slide pump down on shaft string belt and push pump back up and reinstall bolts in pump
