Even if the flat belt is broken and the v belt loose shouldn't the shafts or something be spinning when I flip it over and turn it on? Nothing is spinning on mine


There is a tensioner pulley that drops when you drop the handle down. It squeezes the belt against the roller making it spin. This part often breaks as well. Replace the flat belt, and check to make sure the v belts edges aren't rounded. If they are and the edges are not crisp replace that belt as well. DO NOT put the v belt under the tensioner pulley. It will break should you do so. I'll include a link to the correct part # for that flat belt.

I have a Maytag clothes washer MAH5500BWW. During spin cycle there is a screeching noise presumably from bearings. I cannot find the bearings and other required parts


Hi, the machine has a very irritating squealing sound when washer is spinning or coasting to a stop after the spin cycle.

Case: 1. Snubber damage defective.
2. Foreign material (sand/dust or grit) is on the base.

Solution: 1. Replace the snubber.
2. clean base.
The snubber is a ring that is located between the convex (domed up) center portion of the base and the domed down center portion of the LEG & DOME ASSEMBLY.
The snubber has teflon strips at the top and bottom edges that slide easily on the base as well as the underside of the leg and dome assembly.
This system makes the machine very stable by providing isolation between the leg & dome assy. Which carries both the inner and outer tubs, as well as the main motor and transmission and the base; which is of course connected to the cabinet. This means that the machine is capable of spinning out of balance loads.
As simple as this system is, if one on the strips is bent or there is some foreign material on the base in the snubber area, the result can be an extremely obnoxious scratching or squealing sound that can make the consumer very unhappy.
A very similiar sound can be produced when the belt is worn but the difference is that a snubber noise can be produced during the spin cycle or when the cycle has finished and the spin tub is coasting to a stop. A worn belt noise can only be produced while the motor is actively engaged in spinning the spin tub. If it is discovered that the belt is worn and the base has black, shredded belt residue then it may not necessary to clean it out (belt residue generally will not cause a problem with the snubber). It will be necessary however, to find the cause of the belt failure.
The following procedure should be followed to diagnose and eliminate this condition:
Removing the snubber:
The base must be wiped whether the snubber is replaced or not. Any residue whether it is dust or grit of any kind (other than belt residue as noted above) can cause the objectionable sound to occur.
Remove the front service panel and place the timer in the spin cycle and start the machine. You want to try to duplicate the complaint. Inspect the base for sign of any foreign material. Lift the top panel up and over and lean it against the rear wall.
You will need a tool to raise the entire Leg & Dome Assembly (to which the main motor, tubs and transmission are attached). The machine will not need to be disassembled; the springs will not even be released.
Some Techs use a length of two-by-four" to raise the assembly. A pry-bar makes a superior tool when combined with a block of wood to act as a fulcrum (or pivot point).
Before raising the assembly, pull forward on it so that when you do raise it, the rear of the tub cover does not catch on the rear cabinet frame as it is being lifted.
Using your body weight, raise the assembly high enough to slide the snubber out. You will need to inspect the snubber for defects or damage. It is a good idea to be prepared with some sort of supports (like 3/4 inch pieces of wood) to slide between the lower edge of the assembly and the base to help support it if it were to slide off your pry-bar.

The brushes are not spinning. I get suction, but the brushes don't turn.


Your belt has probably broken. Here is a link to the belt you need:

Dyson DC17 Belt


And here is instructions on how to change it:
1. Loosen 3 screws from bottom plate using flathead screwdriver or coin edge and remove it.
2. Wiggle roller until it pulls straight out.
3. Squeeze new belt and loop it over metal drive gear (you'll easily see the gear).
4. Keeping belt on gear, insert edge of roller through belt and rotate the roller while pushing it through belt until it is inside the belt, then continue rotating roller and sliding it over until belt is in position over gears on roller.
5. Insert roller into slots on that it came out of, reattach bottom cover and its done.

The drum won't spin or agitate the cause is the belt slipping off


There is a mechanical alignment problem beyond your ability to fix. Get a repair Tech and pay for a service call.

Pump works. Spins when empty/no load in tub. clutch slips when loaded


If the drive belt is slipping during the agitate and both spin cycles for loaded conditions, I suspect that the drive belt is excessively worn. If it slipped only during a loaded spin cycle, I would have suspected that the sliding motor mount is gummed up and not moving to a belt tighten position during the start of a spin cycle. Since the unit drains with no problem for loaded and unloaded conditions, the pump belt should be OK. Replace the drive belt and clean the dust, gunk, detergent, etc, out of the sliding mount to make sure that it tightens properly when a loaded spin cycle starts. Note that on most models, the drive belt is designed to slip when spin cycles first engage, and they will continue to slip until after the drum has accelerated.

My hopoint bwd 129 drum is not turning. Could it be a problem with belt. I so how do a replace the belt?


There is an access hatch on the back of the washer.

Do some basic troubleshooting first:
  1. Open the door and spin the drum by hand. Does it move OK? i.e. it isn't jammed.
  2. Does it spin really really well like there is no resistance at all? Possible snapped belt.
Pull the washer out carefully and make sure there's enough slack on the water hoses and mains cable to get access to the back without causing a problem. Look at the back panel, there's a large oval panel approx 16" tall by 12" wide. It is held on by five or six screws. Using a cross head screwdriver of the correct size remove these screws. Grab the bottom edge of the panel and tilt it up slightly to slide it out.

You'll be looking at the back of the washer drum. The motor is at the bottom slightly before 6 o'clock. It should be obvious if the belt is attached or not.

Replacing the belt is straightforward. Just make sure it lines up with the grooves on the motor pulley.

I have just had the same problem too, i fixed it by reattaching the belt and making sure that the belt at the motor was flush with the edge of the motor spindle, right at the end, it looks dodgy, but it works
