See if there is a pulley on the belt that can be moved to tighten the tension. Often the motor's mounting bolts can be loosened and the motor itself can be moved to tighten the belt and restore friction. If not possible, a new tight belt is in order.

My amana washer stops and beeps error 1 f9 what does this mean and it wont drain my clothes


its not draining you may have a clogged pump or broken drive belt?
Washer will not drain:

Thedrain water pumpis the main part in your washing machine that pumps out the water. If this is defective or has failed in any way, this will be the reason why your washer will not drain the water. Before you order a new drain pump, make sure tocheck the pump to be sure a small object like clothing or similar has not lodged itself insideof it causing the NO DRAIN issue and even a no spin issue?. If the drain pump is not clogged, you can test it with a multimeter and remove and replace if needed.

The washing machinedrain hoseis where the water flows through to get the water out.If this drain hose is blocked, kinked, bent, or clogged, the washer will NOT be able to remove the waterfrom the tub. Check the drain hose to be sure it allows the water to flow freely. You can take the drain hose off and run water through it in your sink to be sure it is not blocked. If there is water STILL in the washer when you remove the drain hose, grab a bucket as the water will exit from where you disconnected it
Thewater pump belt(to drain out the water) may have broke or become frayed or loose.If this belt breaks then it is unable to drain and remove the water from your washer. Inspect the belt to see if this is causing theNO DRAINissue and remove and replace if needed.

If thelid switchis not working as required it will cause your washer to not drain (and many other problems).This may be unlikely as a bad lid switch will usually cause your washer to alsonot agitate or spin.However on some models this can vary. The best thing to do if you have a suspected bad lid switch is to test it. It can fail electrically and or mechanically. If mechanical failure is the issue, you should be able to see if it is cracked, broken, or not in place to make contact with the lid. To test it electrically, use a multimeter set on Ohms and test it for continuityMy advice is free cuz God is good!

What can be wrong with my washer my kenmore washer wont spin


I've posted on this subject before. Your washer will not cycle correctly if there are any restrictions in the pump and this usually means that during doing the wash things have been transferred from your clothes generally the pockets. ..These things usually get lodged in the pump. When the washer enters the spin cycle the pump kicks in and pumps out the excess water. If you can get the back off the washer you will see a semi - round object that is usually white with 2 hoses coming out of it. One hose is the water in let hose the other one is attached to the drain hose that goes into the sewer drain outside of the washer. Make sure that the washer is unplugged then remove the hose that goes to the outside drain. Now with a flashlight look inside of the pump and see if you can see any debris or foreign objects. If you see anything in there you will have to remove these things through the hole where the hose connects. After removing debris replace hose inspect the surrounding area for obvious reasons why the washer may have stopped like look to make sure that the belt on the drive motor is ok. With no other signs of problems replace the back of the washer andplug it back in and try to sstart the washer just like you were just starting a new load of laundry. G

Whirlpool washer does not pump water out


First thing I\'d do is inspect the hose. Remove it from the washer entirely (use a bucket to contain stray water) and visually inspect / wash out with a water spray nozzle like a garden or kitchen hose. From the sounds of it, however, I doubt the hose is the issue, but you\'ll want to rule that out first.



If the hose checks out, then either the pump or the belt is the issue. Pumps tend to get clogged over time--I\'m not familiar with yours, but yours may be able to be opened (if so, it\'ll have screws holding it together) and you can remove it and clean it out. If it\'s clogged and a sealed unit, you just get a new pump.



If the pump looks ok, the belt might be slipping, but if that were the case you\'d probably have more issues. Still, depending on the age of the unit, you may want to replace the belt now since you\'re going to have to remount the belt after playing with the pump.



I use repair clinic for my guides while doing work, and if I can\'t find the part locally I use them to supply the parts. Check out this page for more help: Whirlpool Washer Won Drain . Of course, if the idea of taking apart your washer totally freaks you out, go hire a repair person. :) But they\'re not all that hard, honestly--more of just a pain to take care of, since this\'ll probably be your first washer tear-down. Best of luck, and watch those videos at repair clinic--they\'re pretty helpful!

Why doesn't my washer spin out more water. After spinning cycle clothes is quite wet. Could it be a loose belt?


Their is no belt. The washer uses a double shafted motor which drives the pump on one end and the tranny on the other end. You must have a small item of clothing in the tub to pump hose. This washer is easy as pie to repair by anyone. Just a few inexpensive tools and you can fix this washer. Here is a link to 4 videos and a training manual. How it works: Direct drive washer

Washer wont spin


You may have some small piece of clothing stuck in the water pump. Pull clothes out, empty water out, turn over and remove pump and check for obstructions. If nothing in there see if it is frozen from moving, if not belt may be loose by being streched. Replace belt if needed.
