You should be installing this from the back. There is a tension puller that can be adjusted with a wrench. Let me know the Brand and Model and I can probably get a hold of a diagram for you. Hope this helps.

Everything working fine but drum not turning


Check that the belt has not broken or come off the motor pulley. Remove the top cover by removing the screws at the back of the machine and sliding the cover off forwards. Now you need to obtain access to the complete circumference of the drum to fit the belt. Depending on your machine you can either remove the front of the dryer, or release the rear bearing support so that you can slide the new belt over the drum and under the bearing retainer, which may entail removing the back cover as well. The belt then just slips over the motor pulley and you need to check on the belt tension, usually done by adjusting the motor or the tensioner. Good luck and please rate this solution.

The drum is not spinning


Most likely a broken belt, it is not uncommon in Samsung front loaders. There is cover at the rea to access the belt, They are easy to fit as they stretch fit so no adjustments are needed.

Cant fit drums over pads


You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.

Hotpoint wf240 replacment of belt, i cant get it on.


Hi, put the belt on the bottom pully and feed the rest up to the top pully, fit the belt on to half of the top pully, now open the door of the washer and very carefuly turn the drum while holding the belt tight to the pully, take care not to get your fingers trapped, make sure that the belt stays on both pullys by rotating the drum by hand a few times, if it all looks ok and central then the jobs a good un.

How do I fit a new belt to a Whirlpool AWZ650?


Found this dead easy, take top off and back off. Inside undo the star shaped screws, there are also a few screws that are a different shape when removed, these secure the back to an air inlet. Suggest you take note of where the screws come from, even write a number next to the hole with a marker pen and note which screws and in what order. There is also an earth attached to the drum, this is the only wire I removed. Take this back section off. You should then be able to remove the drum by wiggling it out and turning it sideways in the dryer casing.Then remove the fan bottom left, 4 screws and a clip in the centre, the clip was difficult to remove without spreading it so you may need to squeeze it back into shaped before putting it back on. The tensioners will probably have come out of their locators so put them back into place, this is easy to see when you look at them. This is proabably a good time to vacum any dust out. Spread the tensioners hook the belt over the drive shaft only, not the tensioners, and let them spring back, these will then spread when the belt stretches around the drum. Put the drum back on and pull the belt around it, make sure its lined up with the original belt markings otherwise it will just pull the belt off of the drive shaft. Put all the screws back in attache the earth to the drum and put the back on then the top on. I'm not a technician and haven't done this before, it took about 1 1/2hrs.

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

How to get back off to put belt on samsung b1445s washing machine


See if the motor has adjustment , ie a slotted fixing hole, slacken the fixing bolts slightly and motor may move up and down to give adjustment, put the belt on and then put some tension on the belt once fitted by moving the motor down and tightening the motor bolts at the same time.
Or if no adjustment put the belt on the motor spindle first and then the drum by turning the drum as the belt is eased onto it.
