For the FAV6800/FAV9800AW download the service manual;

5/16 nut driver or 5/16 ¼ socket on an extension to remove front panel see page 41 of the Service Manual

Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point.

As mentioned on page 47 of the SM Roll Drive Belt on the Pulley. (Do not loosen motor bolts). If the belt is broken see Sears Parts Direct for a belt P/N.

I have a Sony Video8 Handycam CCD-FX340 NTSC. It will not accept a tape. I can hit the eject button and the tape mechanism will come up and pop open. If I close it without a tape, it will go back down....

This problem can be caused by condensation. Leave camera and tapes in a warm dry place for a day and try again. If that doesn't help, there may be a tape threading fault. This can be something as simple as a broken drive belt, but still will require professional attention.

Dryer won't spin just hums

It could be your belt or the motor is froze up. The belt is an easy fix.With a flat head screw driver pop the top of the dryer open ( make sure it is un plugged) and check belt around the drum. You should see it right away. If the belt is tight then your motor is shot.

Whirlpool washer doesn't spin or agitate

if the motor is spinning but the drum is not then its probably a belt or the transmission. if there is no motor noise it is more than likely the lid safety switch.

Crosby top load. Approx. 5 years old. Tries to spin then goes dead. No power. Removed the belt and the motor turns fine, after cooling down. Seems like the spin is jambed. Any ideas? Steve

It has to drain down below a certain level before the spin will engage so check to make sure its draining all the way. or you can pop the top of the washer lid open (two clips at the front top) to see if something may be jammed in there around the drum. (I use a paint stir stick wooden wedge,and a hammer to pop open those clips.... you might be able to yank it open.

The brush won't spin - but the silver stem it on is spinning

The belt may look fine but it is stretched. The silver stem is the motor shaft. Replace the belt with a genuine one by model #. It will be 20-30% smaller. Check that your brush roll turns freely by hand. Pop the nylon caps off the end to remove hair and thread.

Replace belt?

kenmore ? top load? if so it does not have a belt it has a coupler between transmission and motor pull it away from the wall about 2 feet tilt it back. if you lay on the floor and look under it first thing you see next to front is the water pump it is attached to the motor and motor is attached to the transmission. pop clips off the water pump slide it off and out of the way then take a 5/16 socket and remove the two bolts in the straps that secure the motor to the transmision and there it is

Washer wont agitate or spin

Sounds like your transmission is going bad. usually they will pop the belt when going out. Probably with a service call and the cost of the transmission, you'd do better heading to sears. Sorry to bear the bad news. Good luck.

Belt keeps popping off when its spinning

you have to make sure that the tensioner and belt are tight, see if you can slide the housing back some more to give it tighter fit
