SOURCE: I have a GE front

I have a different suggestion based on my washer's similar problem. If the black stuff is powdery and localized at the back of the unit, more than likely the culprit is the drum pulley itself is warped, causing the belt to chafe against the drum. The black powder is rubber residue from the scraping of belt on plastic. No need to replace unit. New belt and new pulley run about $70 each.

Remove the belt, and from the front, spin the drum by hand.
If it is noisy or rumbling or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed which would explain why the belt was off.
Also check the drum pulley for a brokem or cracked spoke, again this will give you the same symptons.

Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

SOURCE: washing machine drive belt keeps coming off

Try putting some locktite on the thread of the bolt. Loctite is a liquid you can buy to lock bolts into there threads.Alternativley the pulley that the belt runs on may be worn & sloppy in the centre where it goes on the metal shaft.you may need a new pulley as well as Loctite..but try the Loctite first.

Indesit washer not spinning


I had exactly the same problem. All seemed ok, except no spin. I followed Shaun's advice and replaced the module board. Cost of about f£23 from ebay, but similar price on espares.co.uk. Fixed it. Thank you.

Hi, my switch keeps going around and around without stopping


Hi I fixed the problem by removing the filter at the bottom right hand corner of the washing machine and removing 2 x £1 coins that had got stuck there
