Question about Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer
Has new motor and new pulley/wheel. I noticed that the old pulley was 'stripped' where it fits onto the drum, so bought a new one, which fit snugly with no play. Now, several weeks later, the new pulley is also stripped in the same way, and belt is back to slipping off frequently, even after I tighten down the pulley bolt. I have watched it spin and belt does not seem to be the problem. Machine seems to have low tolerance for unbalanced loads. Could it be a bad load balance sensor, and the unbalanced loads that loosen the pulley bolt, causing the belt to slip off? Any other ideas?
Remove the back panel to get to the motor which is at the bottom at the back. Notice two bolts holding the motor into the mount. Remove these two bolts. Notice the back part of the motor is sitting in the mount with black rubber washers. Carefully, pull the motor forward, and this will be abit hard. You can take a flat head screw driver and tap down (in between) on each front plastic washer and the motor will slowly come forward. Becarefull because there is a wire harness still attached to the motor. You have to take wire cutters and clip the placstic band holding the wire harness to the motor. Then grip the harness and wiggle it free. Then remove the single wire also. Putting the belt back is a bit tricky too. Make sure you put back the two black rubber washers and the two front plastic washers.

There is no provision made for adjusting belt.
With the rear panel removed, fit the belt round the motor pulley first, and slowly feed it round the drum pulley, at the same time turning the pulley by hand..
Watch your fingers, it will be tight.
You will find it easier to do if you lean the washer away from you, this will give you more room to get your hands in..
Hope this helps you.

Welcome to FixYa
is with the motor itself that is bad and needs replacement. I don't think it is
the belt that is bad causing this issue, if you want you can take it apart and
check the belt. However, the hum sound itself indicates that the motor is bad
and recommended repair is replacing the motor. Please get back to me if you
have any other questions.
