Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I am having trouble replacing my washing machine belt.

I am not sure how to install my washing machine belt. I know that I have to remove the motor and I think that I have identified how to replace the belt, but when I turn on the machine, the belt doesn't move and the machine starts to smoke.

    You don't have to remove the motor to replace the belt, just need to loosen the mounting bolt(s).



    Does the belt have enough tension? If there is tension on the belt perhaps the water pump is locked up, or the clutch mechanism is malfunctioning.

Make sure that yo have the correct belt. I am sure that you have already done this. It sound like the drum it stuck. Make sure the drum will spin. Also without the the belt on make sure the motor will work on its known. See if this will help

Install belt on Amana top load washing machine


Use the correct sized belt!!

Loosen the Motor mounting Bolts. ( Do not take it off ) Now the motor assembly can be moved towards the opposite large pulley.

Replace the belt in this position and slide the motor to it's original position. You adjust it in such away so that, the belt is not too tight or loose!

Replacing the belt


You will need to remove the motor & then remove the pump from the motor assembly to install the new belt. here is the break down. Make sure to take a good look at how that belt is around the pump. take the hole motor, braket and pump off the machine at one time. the motor does not need to be taken off the metal braket. Good luck :)

Reverse to install, but remember to give a little tension to the belt by holding motor toward the back left corner while tightening up nuts. Tighten the nut closest to the center of the machine first.

I need to replace the belt


You shouldn't have to remove the pump to replace the belt. The motor mount can be loosened and the motor moved so the belt will fit over all pulleys without removing the components.

Loosen motor, move it in, install belt, move motor out to correct belt tension, tighten motor mounts.

Does not remove all the water on spin cycle


Its the filter cap or plug. It unscrews anti-clockwise.

Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Be prepared for water, drain out from drain hose. Check filter for clogging, clean out. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes, if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.

Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Drain off water. Be prepared for more water. Check filter for clogging. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes, if it is any shorter than 5mm replace brushes.

How to replace the belt on a Samsung J845 frnt loader washing machine


If you stand in FRONT of the washer, leaning over the top, the drive wheel is underneath the main drive motor, on the RIGHT hand side.  Loop the belt over the drive motor wheel, then over the main pully, and it should be good to go!
