Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Frigidaire washer that I need to install the v-belt. The old belt broke so I wasn't able to see how it threaded abound the, I believe, three pulleys. Also, what about the belt tension once installed, does this need to be considered?

The belt goes around the the motor pulley then tension arm and then around the transmission pulley once you start to put it on the transmission pulley you can push it clockwise and this will help put the belt in possition

I need a schematic for installing a cub cadet LT1050 drive belt. The old belt broke and I'm just not sure how to replace it. It appears you need to remove the clutch for the mower blade firat.


To replace a transmission drive belt on a Cub Cadet LT1045 or LT 1050 you need to remove the deck, preferably put the front wheels up on blocks or stands, unplug the PTO power (directly under the engine, which can be a pain ), use an impact wrench (you need the speed of the impact wrench because the engine will turn) and a 5/8" socket and reverse the bolt out of the PTO.

The PTO may be sized on there so you may want to tap it with a hammer and a block of wood carefully to release it. AT this point remove the 4 engine mount bolts from underneath (1/2" I believe). You will need to remove the left steering nut and arm to have access to the 4th bolt. Do not remove or replace engine mount bolts with impact wrench or bolts may break. Loosen old belt from tensioner pulley. Place pry bar under engine to slightly lift engine and move aft to expose belt from pulley and remove from pulley. Remove old belt from engine pulley first, transmission pulley last. Remember how belt goes around pulleys before doing so, draw a map if needed.

You'll need to put the belt on the transmission pulley first then thread the belt up to the engine pulley. Carefully push engine back into place and exhaust pipes into forward muffler will take some patience. Bolt engine back on being careful not to over tighten bolts. Place steering arm and nut back in place. Thread your belt back through the pulleys and tensioner (make sure your spring is strong enough to tension the belt or buy a new one).

The PTO is "keyed" on the shaft. Replace bolt and washer. Put your deck back on and you're ready to mow again. Give yourself an hour for this one.

The tub does not turn in the rinse/spin cycle but the motor is running.


Hello Jwwood,

Your Frigidaire GLTF2940F washer is not moving when it is washing clothes. This is because the belt is broke you can locate the belt on RepairClinic.com. Before you order the belt you need to findout the length as there are many different lengths and styles. In order to get to the belt you need to remove the back of the unit. If it is broke as I beleive measure and post back to this thread or go to the following link find the proper size and order. LInk - http://www.repairclinic.com/Frigidaire-Washing-Machine-Belt-Parts


Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

I have a Frigidaire GLTF1670A washer. When the washer goes into the spin cycle, I have noticed a progressively louder belt slipping sound. The washer is 7 years old. Do I need to replace the belt, or is...


Disconnect the washer from the electrical supply then remove the screws shown holding the rear access panel to the washer’s rear panel and lift the access panel off.

Cushion the bottom of the cabinet opening as shown to avoid hurting yourself with the sharp edge.

Plug the washer in then start a loaded spin cycle to check for belt slippage and the motor operation itself.

Replace the belt if loose or slipping. Remove the belt by turning the tub drive pulley and rolling the belt off the pulley.

Install the new belt in reverse order by wrapping it around the motor pulley and on one side of the tub drive pulley then turn the pulley to the other side in such a way that the belt wraps completely around the pulley. Secure the rear access panel back into position to complete the procedure.
