Pulley on motor has grooves that must have the belt grooves in them. Make sure that the belt is not kinked but is smooth around drum. Spring tensioner with smooth pulley must take up the slack and keep the drum belt tight. sometimes back access panel is easier than reaching from in front.

SOURCE: I'm having a problem re-fitting the drive belt to

After some mild swearing, I made sure that I had the belt around the drum aligned (in the same plane) as closely as I could with the drive pulley and tensioning wheel. I think this was partially achieved by placing the belt as close to that position as possible before lining up the front end of the drum with the cabinet opening, and then turning the drum from the front (through the open door) very slowly clockwise (the direction of its normal rotation) to give the belt "time" to align itself fully with the smaller pulleys. A short prayer and a few minutes later, the machine was humming away with all parts playing their "part" in beautiful harmony - without the dreaded sound of a thin black drive belt cluncking to the floor of the metal cabinet.
Cheers,
Andy B.

How do i fit the drive belt on a hotpoint wma74 washing machine


Hook the belt over the motor shaft and feed it onto the drum pulley as far as it will go,hold it in place on the pulley with the aid of cable tie clips, then rotate the inner drum anti clock wise by holding the inside of the inner drum. This will draw the belt onto the pulley and the cable ties will snap as the drum rotates.

I have a Creda 37374 Tumble Dryer and the belt has snapped. ive managed to get to the insides of the machine but how do i replace the belt as it looks as if it came off two pulleys next to the motor and...


remove the timer knob and you`ll see a small screw. remove that and the from control panel should slide upwards. once thats off you will see two metal rods/arms which fit onto the rear and the front of machine. remove the 2 screws holding the 2 rods/arms. the front of the machine can now be moved forward enough to get the belt over the drum. when the belt is over the drum, place belt onto the motor drive shaft (ribbed part of belt to ribbed pulley) then put belt between the sprung rollers and onto both rollers. make sure drum is then re aligned onto the bearing sliders on the front panel of machine. fasten back up. job done.

How to wrap belt around belt and drum tensioner


These are a pain to do. You have to put the belt around the drum and at the motor, there is a pulley on a spring device.Twist the pulley toward the motor, until you can get the belt onto the motor pulley. Release the spring loaded pulley and it will automatically tighten the belt.

I cant fit a drive belt on ariston washing machine, none of the bolts seem to slacken the motor


Don't know if you have solved this yet but I found a good tip on fitting a drum belt to a machine that doesn't have tension bolts (i.e they are fixed).

First put the belt fully on the motor pulley. Now fit the other part of the belt onto the main pulley as much as possible on the right-hand side (looking at the machine from the front). Secure this part in place with a cable-tie (if you haven't got any go and buy some). With the tie in place, rotate the drum from the inside counter-clockwise and the belt should feed onto the main pulley correctly. The cable tie will either snap when you do this or you should cut it off after the belt is in place.

This worked for me.

HOW DO I FIT NEW BELT TO HOTPOINT WF430 WASHING MACHINE


The easyest way to fit these belts is to locate it on the motor pulley and as far onto the right hand side of the main pulley (viewed from the front of the machine) as possible. Hold it on the main pulley with a cable tie and rotate the drum anti clockwise by turning it from inside. The belt will be drawn onto the pulley and the cable tie will snap as it rotates. (Easy)

How do you install a new belt? its hard to fit around !!


Youmust loosen the motor bracket bolts and this will allow the motor to swing. Put belt on the motor pulley and feed the belt onto the large drum pulley and at the same time turn the drum pulley so that the belt pulls onto the pulley groove. Put some tension on the motor to tension the belt - not too much tension though. Holding the motor & belt tension, tighten the motor bracket bolts - job done. Should take no more than twenty minutes to complete.

Belt amana washer replace mod lw6501w2


I have a similar amana top load washer and just changed the belt. Here are the steps I used to change the belt:
1) Unplug the washer
2) Slide the washer away from the wall about 12"
3) Remove two screws from the bottom of the front panel, slide the front panel down (there are 2 metal tabs that slide into slots on the top of the front panel - observe how they slide into/out of the slots). Set the panel aside.
4) Remove the electrical connector (upper left of motor). Press down on the top of the plastic connector - this will undo the catch hook holding the connection in place). Observe how the belt is routed before proceeding.
5) Remove 4 bolts holding the motor in place. You can remove the motor - even with the water pump and hoses in place - they will flex.
6) Remove the water pump from the motor. There are 3 torx - head screws to remove. Note: You will need a star shaped (torx) head driver (Looks like a screwdriver but with a "star" head on it. The one I used measured just under 3/16 in diameter.
7) carefully remove the water pump. - remove the old belt from main pulley under washer drum and also from the water pump. Insert the new belt - be sure to put the tension pulley on the outside of the belt.
8) Reinstall the water pump to the motor. Reinstall the motor. Route the belt correctly in the water pump body area first - them slide the belt around the left side of the main drum pulley - rotate the pulley counter-clockwise and the pulley will tug the belt onto the pulley. Once in place - check bolts and belt - then reattach the electrical connector (remember to press the plastic lever on top of the plastic connector before sliding it in place). Reattach front panel - slide the top of the panel onto the metal tabs - then attach screws at the bottom.

Dryer belt broke on my kenmore series 80


With the front cabinet panel off, place the drum against the back and on the rear rollers. The roller on the right will sometimes move toward the rear so reach from underneath and pull it forward. The rollers should sit in the groove. The drum will tilt forward but shouldn't fall off. Route the belt around drum, pulley and motor. Tilt the drum back and support it while placing the front panel back onto it's hooks. With the front panel on (don't screw it on yet), rotate the drum by hand to make sure the seal is not kinked and the belt won't slide off the pulley or motor. If all is well screw in the front panel and re-assemble the rest.

How do I replace the belt that makes the drum spin on a Hotpoint Ultima WF860 ?


The belt goes around the drum and onto the motor pulley. No need to loosen anything. Put tension on the belt and fit it onto the motor pulley by gently turning the motor and pushing the belt onto the pulley at the same time.
