If the belt is coming off the pullies my be out of line .you need to put a straight edge across the two pullies to make sure they are level . And check there's enough tension on the belt .

SOURCE: zanussi aquacycle 1000 washing machine spin problem

My zanussi aquacycle 1110 sounds like it is about to take off when it goes onto a spin cycle. Does anyone know what it could be? The big black spings are still in place inside the washer that hold the drum. It also rattles more than normal as well. Thankyou

Have just got this washer 2nd hand, was told needed new belt, bought new belt n put it on n it keeps working its way off!! Bit annoyed cos been ripped off! What is problem? Have little money!!


it may be just that you need to make sure that when you put the belt on that the belt is on tight but not to tight on both pulley wheels.
or you could have faulty pulley wheels.
this is just a thought i could be wrong.i hope some one else reads your fault and points you in the right way.
good luck

Repair a belt on a washing machine for a speedqueen


Remove the front panel by removing the three screws at the bottom of the panel and then tilting it up to unhook it at the top. Make sure the machine is disconnected from the electrical power - not just switched off but unplugged at the socket. Look for the belt between the electric motor and the main drive pulley of the agitator and also locate the belt tensioner which is a small pulley pressing against the belt under tension of a spring hook onto it. Pull and keep the tensioner away by hand to allow the removal of the belt starting at the motor pulley. Replace with the new belt by starting at the agitator pulley. Keep the tensioner pulley out of the way until the belt is fitted on both pulleys and then allow it to settle against the belt again. Do not adjust the spring tension and buy the correct belt from speed queen as it requires a graphite type belt. An ordinary vehicle v-belt will not work - repeat will not work. Replace the cover by hooking it in first at the top and then replacing the screws at the bottom.

The belt keeps coming off and does not sit straight on the wheel


If the belt keeps coming off, then it could be worn or stretched belt, loose drum pulley, a cracked spoke on the pulley, or the main drum bearings have failed, thus allowing the drum to run off center.
Hope this helps.

I cannot get the drive belt back on.


Hi.

Asuming you have the correct belt, then you will really have pull and stretch it hard to get it on.

It is the case that the new belt wiill not appear to be the right size.

Just persist, mind you do not trap your fingers!!!

Cant get new drive belt to fit washing machine. right one but cant get it to stretch enough to fit from drum wheel to motor


this is a common problem as nowadays stretchy belts are used in order to avoid motor adjustment.
fitting requires some brute force. the way i do it is to put the belt on the motor pulley then start it as much as i can on the drum pulley. turn the drum pulley keeping force sideways to push the belt on and as you turn, the belt will go on

Kenmore h3 won't spin


Remove the pulley nut and pulley. The pulley should have a round hole with two flat sides that ride on a shaft. If the flat sides of this opening are damaged the pulley will not stay tight and will rattle. Try tightening everything down. If you can grab the pulley (like a steering wheel on a car) and turn it back and forth on the shaft, there shouldn't be any "play" in it. The whole drum should turn. If this is the case, replace the pulley and nut. I hope this helps you.
