Help belt came off mid spin on my 2 year old mashine. I went and bought a new belt (genuin).I managed to get it on but new one is coming off after about 1 min spinning. Could it be something other than the belt?

If the tray comes off the machine this is caused by a stretched belt, customers forget get to take of the tension of the belt when not using the shampooer, if left on the belt lifter hook it streches the belt. fit a new kirby genuine goyshan belt
If you can get to the area where the belt is you can cut the old one off and then move the motor and slip the new belt over the pulleys. I don't say it is easy but if you have the average mechanical ability you can do it.
Sounds like you either have a bad bearing in the pullys or pully or the guides that keep that belt in place are not doing their job. Any repair shop can change out a belt. However, fixing it is another thing. I had a customer who said every since he had his lawn tractor the belt wouldn't last long enough to get a summer out of it. I found the spring missing of the tensioner pully for the belt when it's engaged and also the guide for the belt was on backwards and therefore cutting the face of the belt.
Hello, I too bought one of these washers(WSSH300G1WW). After about one year of operation i noticed that the low spin cycle was making noise so look at it and it was just making noise and not spinning. canceled the cycle restarted the machine but this time set the spin speed to high instead of low, it works on high. im guessing its the clutch in the machine that is faulty and really cant affoard to fix at this time. The thing is i liked to use low spin cause the thing would shake violently on high even with a small load. So now when it spins or i start the machine i make sure theres nothing close that its shaking will cause to fall and break. I also bought the matching dryer (dsxh47eg1ww) it too has problems, the bearings that hold the front of the drum up are going out, thing is i dont over load it and it seems that they went out or started to go out very early as my clothes were getting caught inbetween the drum and the dryer 2 months after i bought it. Im 42 years old so i remember when we had REAL washer and dryers. When quality was revered by companies and consumers. Those old machines ran for years (maybe even decades) without problems, replace a belt from time to time. Now days your lucky to get five years out of an appliance. I know these ones arent going to see 5 years. their about 2 years old and im ready to go find some 1970 model year washer and dryer, rebuild, give a custom paint job to call them retro.
I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. It's been about 55 years since I had experience with front load washers. However I can refer you to Applianceaid.com where they have very good and complete trouble shooting and repair information on front loaders. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you please rate my advice on fixya.
I believe there is something wrong with the roller, could be the barrings or the end caps are warped. Try this, take the roller out and with each hand on each end hold the roller and try to spin the roller with your thumb. If it does not spin freely the problem is the roller.
We have an LG TROMM with the same problem, 3 years old as well. We bought the extended warranty (Huge waste of $$$$). So far they have determined it is not the motor or either of the control boards. We think it might be a relay switch or possibly the brake. Good luck with yours, we just went out and bought a new washer.
My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.
