Changing the belt is not a big job, but you will have to lie on your stomach for a while. You will need to loosen the bolts which hold whatever is used to tension the belt - the pump, the motor, etc.--- it should be apparent when you look at the entire setup. "Buy a new washer" sounds like a Sears solution.

Is there a belt on a kenmore ultra fabric care heavy duty 80 series


No. What is the problem you are having? Let me guess, it's not spinning or agitating?!
What is the model number listed under the lid?

My kenmore 80 series washing machine makes a horrible noise and cold side fills about half speed when filling with water. What should I check?


For the slow water issue, you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Here is a link to the part.
Could you describe the noise and where it is coming from?

My kenmore series 80 model 11020892 fills with water --will not agitate or spin or empty water makes a terrible noise I need help!


Well the first thing is to check and see if the belt is broke on the drum (take the back off) or the belt is slipping ,hence the noise .Not a major deal but that is what it sounds like and that is good news because that is an easy fix. Get model and your nearest appliance store will have one. I probably won't empty water cause the other two cycles weren't working ,I'm pretty sure its the belt from what you have told me.Good luck! Oh and by the way it comes offf easy just undo the springs and well you'll see easy!

Kenmore top load hqavy duty 80 series model 82980120 - how does one get to the drive belt. Washer motor hums but no action any cycle.


Your complete model number including the first 3 numbers , is needed to help you get to the coupling . The coupling , is the piece ( pt # 285753 ) which connects the motor to the transmission . When this piece breaks , the motor will run , but no machine action , except for water drain . Even spin , will not work , yet , you will hear the motor running .

Kenmore makes whining noise as it tries to spin


The drive coupling has probably broken. Usually happens when you overload the machine. Easy fix. READ MORE
