Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Neptune MAH3000AWW Pullys dont line up

The drive pully has groves that the belt is suposed to fit in and has more groves than the belt so that the belt can be moved in order to line up the belt into the center of the drum pully.
However the belt will not ride on the drum pully even when placed to the furthest outside groves.
If I place the belt on the furthest outside groves the belt wears against the back of the machine and comes off.
And if I place the belt outside the groves it throws the belt off during the spin cycle

    Originally my MAH3000 Front Load Washer had a very load spinning noise so I replaced the bearings. Now the belt won't stay on and I'm not sure if I should replace the belt (which looks fine) or it is another problem. Can anyone help? Thanks.

How do i go about replaceing my washing machine belt

If your machine is a front loader, then you will need to remove the rear panel, normally this is just a screwdriver requirement. make sure you take your old belt as the supplier will require the numbers from it to ensure you get the correct size. There are many different belts. Place the belt onto motor shaft and then onto drum pully wheel as far as it will go. You then need to rotate the drum by hand to feed the belt onto the wheel. After you have done this you may need to line the belt up by moving it across the grooves on the motor spindle. to do so again move the drum pully around and at same time move belt across the motor pully groves until belt runs central on drum pully. This may seem awkward but you will be suprised how easy it really is.Also it will save you a fortune by doing this yourself

My 24942 has stopped agitating and spinning what is the problem? how do I access the interior to fix it?

Chances are you have a broken belt. Lay the washer down with the back of it on the floor. You will see the belt. Well... at least you will see the pullys. The belt may be twisted around one of the pullys. When tilting it back have a bucket near by for the water that will drain from the drain hose.

Belt came off of model# 26944500

I am not sure what you question is. But I would inspect the belt, and if there is no damage, use it to make sure the belt guides, and pullys are lined up correctly. If they are not, then fix them and try to reuse the belt. If the pullys and guides look good, then the belt may simply have stretched, and should be replaced. (Actualy, and time you throw a belt it is likely to stretch, and should be replaced - but who can afford that?).

Belt won't stay on the pulley

These belts are really sensitive. Try messing around with it. Making srue that the belt isnt coming off the big tub pully. You tub pully isnt loose is it. Make sure the bolt that hold the pully onto the tub is tight on. Make sure the pully isnt loose. Inspect it for any small craks where that boltt tightens up. If the pully check out ok. Check the small motor pully as well. Make sure that isnt loose or anything. Pull on it if if its loose then thats you problem.. Inspect both pullys good. I would assume belt is in good shape right? If both pullys check out ok, then i would try to get the belt on and just mess around with it, spin the pully and if you se the belt starting to slip off adjust it as you keep spinning the pully....hope this helps

Hotpoint wf240 replacment of belt, i cant get it on.

Hi, put the belt on the bottom pully and feed the rest up to the top pully, fit the belt on to half of the top pully, now open the door of the washer and very carefuly turn the drum while holding the belt tight to the pully, take care not to get your fingers trapped, make sure that the belt stays on both pullys by rotating the drum by hand a few times, if it all looks ok and central then the jobs a good un.

I cannot get the drive belt back on my Neptune washer

Its not an easy task but you have to barely get one side to hook or touch the pulley and then roll it on. When you get it started it should roll on pretty easily
