The blet should have 1/4" deflection (approximately) over the longest length.

Belt has come off from drive pully to drum wheel. when trying to refit, belt runs off drive pully when i turn drum wheel by hand. machine not that old and belt in good condition (checked it against new...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I always recommend the purchase of a new belt anyway- but you appear to have one!
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I replaced belt on my 97 Suburban but the tention pulley did not click. But the belt feels tight. The pully moves back and forth. Is it safe to drive without me hearing the click sound.


yeah it'll be ok for you to drive it as long as its not sloppy loose or super tight you'll be ok. but if you still have doubts replace your tensioner pulley

Belt won't stay on the pulley


These belts are really sensitive. Try messing around with it. Making srue that the belt isnt coming off the big tub pully. You tub pully isnt loose is it. Make sure the bolt that hold the pully onto the tub is tight on. Make sure the pully isnt loose. Inspect it for any small craks where that boltt tightens up. If the pully check out ok. Check the small motor pully as well. Make sure that isnt loose or anything. Pull on it if if its loose then thats you problem.. Inspect both pullys good. I would assume belt is in good shape right? If both pullys check out ok, then i would try to get the belt on and just mess around with it, spin the pully and if you se the belt starting to slip off adjust it as you keep spinning the pully....hope this helps

WASHING MACHINE DRUM WILL NOT TURN


There is no adjustment provided for lining up the pulleys.
If it comes off then there are a couple of reasons that come to mind,the belt is too slack, the belt is worn,the drum is out of alignment with the motor pulley, caused by worn drum bearings, the motor is loose, a loose drum pulley, or you are not lining the belt up properly, overloading can also throw the belt off.
Hope this helps.
Plz leave feedback.
