Put the belt on the thin motor spindle first. Once this is done, lift the edge of the belt just onto the left edge of the large wheel that drives the drum. Now spin the wheel clockwise and ease the belt into place. It will go on surprisingly easily

I have a simplicity 7350 vacuum. The belt and roller have recently been replaced. It runs fine on floor mode and has no problems with suction. When I put the vacuum in carpet mode, I do not hear the motor...


the motor spins around a steel shaft that sticks out on one end, and the belt is driven by that shaft, belts are easily damaged and broken, meaning roller wont spin. Often a burning smell of rubber is noticed after motor shaft spins on stuck belt. cause is always hair./string/something at the three contact points. motor shaft and belt, roller and vacuum body become clogged. become familiar with taking cover off roller/belt, and cleaning Checking moving parts roller/belt come out easily and simple to clean...keep spare belts.

Maytag centenial won't spin


Your going to check the belt and pulley inside the machine but let me warn you first, this is a knuckle busting nightmare of a machine, and if your not fond of the idea of bleeding, grease and pain, call a repair company. I'll post a few examples to help you make your mind on the topic.
Belt wore out

Had to remove pump-not easy. Nothing wrong with pump, but had to trash it to get it off the motor shaft, so I had to replace it, too.

Pop up top of cabinet and remove front panel. (I leaned unit back against a wall to facilitate internal access once panel was removed.)


Remove motor assy - 4 screws & connector.

Remove 3 pump screws (torx) and 2 hoses. Pry pump off motor shaft (not easy). I used a heat gun to help expand the plastic fitting on the motor shaft.

Remove old belt, put on new belt. (Do not use automotive belt-this belt is designed to slip because it also spins the tub. The tub will not spin when it's full of water, and the pump will not pump the water if the tub is bogging down the pump. Plus, you will probably overheat the motor.)

Press new pump back on motor shaft (advise not to re-use old pump as seals were probably damaged by removal process.)

Caution: Pressing pump onto motor shaft may cause pump rotor to bind in housing. Try to press it on a little too far so you back off slightly.

Replace pump screws.

Replace motor, giving attention to belt alignment.

Replace motor screws and connector.

Re-attach hoses on pump.

Button up cabinet.

Done.

The hardest part was removing the pump. If not for that, it would have been a 15-min, $20 repair.

Because I felt it wise to replace the pump also, it was a $70 repair.

Drive pump leaked

It took some trial and error but overall not a difficult project.

1. Take the front covers off.
2. Undo the pully spring to loosen belt
3. Remove belt off idler pulley wheel and free up belt from the large wheel.
4. Disconect the wiring harness and the hoses.
5. Undo the motor mounting bolts (4)
6. Take motor out of washer and remove the 3 screws holding the pump to the motor.
7. The pump had melted to the shaft and required I chisel the pump off of the shaft.
8. Attach new pump paying attention to where the belt is positioned.
9. Reattach the motor bolts, hoses, and wiring harnes.
10. Attach the belt and test the pump.
11. Put the front back on

How to change a belt on a Whirlpool washer model LA555OXTWO


I am not exactly sure on your machine, several places called it a direct drive unit but here are some directions I have found also.

1) Turn off water. Disconnect electrical supply and water hoses.
2) Remove agitator and cap from machine ( this is not always possible as the agitator gets frozen on the shaft, it just makes the job a little easier )
3) Lay machine on it's front. Protect front of the unit from scratches. Do not leave it over night on it's front as some oil will leak out the breather hole on top of the transmission.
4) Remove rear service panel
5) Loosen both nuts holding the motor mounting bracket in the slotted base plate holes. (see figure 1)

fig1.jpg

6) Rotate the motor to the right to relieve the belt tension and remove belt from motor pulley

7) After belt is removed from motor pulley, rotate motor to the left as far as possible to assure cam bar clearance.

8) The spin cam bar must be advanced to the spin position. Push up on the spin control solenoid plunger and rotate the main drive pulley until the cam bar advances to the spin position.

9) Remove the brake yoke spring from the gear case cover and yok. (see figure 2)

fig2.jpg


10) Remove completely the 3 support braces attached to the gear case and base plate. (see figure 3)

11) Remove the 2 pump mounting bolts. The pump hoses do not have to be disturbed. (see figure 3)

12) Remove the gear case mounting stud which has the spacer. remove spacer (see figure 2). Loosen the remaining 2 gear case mounting studs approximately 7 turns. (see figure 3).

fig3.jpg

13) Remove yoke retainer from yoke support. (see figure 2 for the types of yoke retainer).

14) The gear case can now be pulled down so that the belt can be slipped out between the top of of the clutch shaft and the clutch yoke. (see figure 4) and then through the space beneath the short stud; drop the belt from around the gear case.

fig4.jpg

15) Reverse the procedure in steps 15 & 13 to install the new belt.

16) Replace the pump making certain the pump lever is engaged in the notch in the agitator cam bar before securing the pump to the gear case ( see figure 5).

fig5.jpg

17) Grasp the bottom loop of the yoke spring with a pair of pliers and engage the spring with the hole in the upper gear case cover (see figure 2).

18) Replace spacer in short gear case mounting stud. Tighten the 3 gearcase mounting bolts ( finger tight only ). Next, set the machine upright and tighten the gear case mounting bolts securely. This procedure will allow the superstructure to properly align itself with the center post bearing.

19) Lay the machine on it's front to mount the 3 support braces to the gearcase baseplate. Tighten the bolts securely.

20) To adjust the belt tension properly, position the belt over the pulleys. Insert a hammer handle or some other lever between the motor mounting brackets. Rotate the motor to the left as far as it will go. Tighten the nuts holding the motor mounting bracket. Check the tension of the belt, it should deflect about 1/2 inch. (see figure 1).

21) Set machine upright. Reinstall the agitator, agitator cap, service panel, water hoses and connect electrical supply.

The belt for the dryer is not in place and the dryer is not longer spinning. how would i fix that? There is also a piece with a wheel on it that i cannot figure out where it goes but looks as though it is...


Look up "Tension Pully & Belt Diagram" on internet for your dryer on google or Dogpile. You should be able to find how to
put the Tension Pully back where it belongs & how to thread the belt through it and back on to the motor drive shaft. Check different sites for the right picture for your dryer. Here's a picture to get you started. Good luck,

Im trying to put a belt on a hobart 84146


I'll do my best to recall all the steps, I haven't done it in a while. Read instructions fully before starting, as step three may not be necessary, although if performed you'll have much more room for your hands during the remainder of the process.

1. Lay machine on side/back (so that the knife shaft is standing vertically) to access the bottom.
2. Remove bottom cover panel.
3. Remove motor. Two nuts are easy to access, the other two are quite difficult to reach. This step might not be necessary if only changing a belt because you should be able to slip the old belt off and the new one on without completely removing the knife shaft. If the knife shaft must be removed for some reason, the motor must come out to give you room to fit a puller onto the knife shaft (in order to remove the lower knife shaft bearing and lift out the shaft).
4. Take note of the knife shaft pulley. Notice how close to the casting the pulley is. When re-assembling, you'll need to position the pulley at approximately the same location for the black belt to track properly). Loosen two set screws securing pulley onto knife shaft and slide pulley down (don't lose the key for the pulley when you slide the pully down).
5. On the "outside" of the machine, remove the plastic cover where the knife shaft enters the casting.
6. Now visible is a special locknut and special lockwasher (sorry, don't know their names). One of the tabs of the lockwasher is likely bent upward into one of the slots of the locknut. Use a hammer & punch to bend the tab out of the locknut's slot, allowing the nut to turn.
7. Using a hammer and punch, position the punch in one of the slots on the locknut and spin the nut counter-clockwise with sharp blows with the hammer & punch. Have an assistant hold the shaft to offer some resistance to the shaft spinning if you're having difficulty. This may also be easier with the motor and belts still in position, using the motor to partially hold the shaft from rotating while driving the locknut loose.
8. With the locknut removed, spin it back onto the shaft a few threads with the flat side of the nut towards the casting (upside down compared to it's original, installed position). Don't spin it all the way on, you need room to fit a prybar under the flat edge of the nut.
9. Using two prybars, one directly opposite the other, under the now upside-down locknut, pry up evenly on each side of the locknut, and the shaft usually pops out fairly easily.
10. Back on the bottom side of the machine, slip off the belts and replace with new belts and reassemble machine.
11. Be sure to turn the locknut back around to it's proper orientation and be sure to tighten it with a hammer and punch just as during disassembly (special wrenches exist for those nuts, I don't know their name) and bend one of the lockwasher tabs into one of the locknut slots (even if you need to turn the locknut backwards slightly from it's fully tight position).

When everything is reasembled, be sure the flat black belt tracks properly, that is, make sure it doesn't walk off the pulley as the motor runs (just spin the shaft by hand at first to observe if the belt tracks properly.

Good Luck!

My timeing is set but my water pump is not working i took the piece out the spark pug wire cables go to out when change the rear main seal when i put that piece the spark pug wire cables back the water was...


your waterpump is belt driven....if your belt is on correctly and the pump is still good it will work. the belt spins the pully, the pulley spins the shaft, and the shaft spins the impeller. the impeller "pumps" the water through the motor. I would loosen the belt and see how much play there is in the shaft of the pump. the old grab and wiggle approach. if it moves a lot then it needs replacing.

Whirpool duet washer. Drum pulley loose


If the pulley doesn't fit the shaft anymore, it may have sheared a metal key between the shaft and pulley center. If it did, you may have to replace both the key and pulley. If the key is intact and the set-screw is only loose, just tighten the screw and you're home free. Make sure the belt has not been damaged--replace it if so. The belt should be fairly tight when things are back together.

I have an kenmore dryer i have the belt hooked up through the pulley but there's a clip on top of the drum i can't figure out how to clip it to the belt. The dryer runs but won't spin and the belt keeps...


make sure you got the belt the correct way the little teeth need to be down on the drum that is usually the main problem haS happened to me before and make sure you got it the right way the right side of the belt goes under the pulley with you hand bring the pulley closer to the motor shaft as your doing this there should be a lot of tention where you can barely get the belt on the motor shaft if its way too easy its not right and make sure your belt is not in the crese of the drum once you bring the pulley closer to the motor shaft just hook the belt around the shaft good luck

Wont spin, motor shaft turn but belt does not


If you start the washer and it just kind of buzzes and then does nothing, one thing you can check is to see if you have a clogged water pump. If you have kids sometimes baby socks can get jammed into the pump causing it not to spin, to check the pump simpy pull the hose on the back that goes into the pump and the hose that comes out of the pump, then the pump should slide off the shaft check to see if the water pump spins freely!

no need to remove motor shaft which is integral with motor. slip belt on motor shaft first, then on roller then pull roller back to correct position. needs a little force
