Fisrt, see if you can rotate it by hand, BOTH directions. It should have some resistance. If you can spin it and when you stop pushing it will turn a full turn, your drum belt is too loose. If the belt is good and tight, it will spin less than one half rotation, there is probably something blocking one of the wheels that the drum rides on.

Drive Belt Installation on a Whirlpool Duet or Kenmore Elite Front Loader


This advice is on how to replace the drive belt on Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite front loader washing machines. To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and turn the washing machine around so you can access the back panel. Remove the rear panel by locating and loosening the screws around the perimeter of the panel.

2. Loop the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the drum pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

If you have any questions, or are uncertain if these steps apply to your washer (some newer model Maytag front loaders are now manufactured by Whirlpool) please provide me with a model number and I can let you know if these steps apply. I hope this information is helpful.

My front loader fills with water, pumps and drains fine but the drum never moves or spins . Already cleaned pump, Checked belt and motor, belt is good and motor and drum spin freely.


Remove the back panel of the machine and operate it to check that the drive belts are being engaged to drive the drum. Observe the operation from a safe distance when you have the back off as there are live terminals within reach and you could be severely shocked if you come into contact with any one of them. Unplug the machine again before checking anything withing the workings.

How do i fix on a drive belt to a washing machine?


There is a removeable cover at bottom rear of washer..
Undo this, and you will see the motor and belt.
It will be very tight to put on, but this is normal as it is a stretch belt, that is why there is no adjustment on motor.
Hope this helps you .
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

My Ariston front loader washer does not spin when it suppose to. I could hear the motor is running but the tub is not rotating. I also tried to rotate the tub by hand and there seems to be some friction...


Remove the rear cover and check the drive belt has not come off.
If the belt is off, there should be no resistance to turning drum, if there is, then there could be something trapped inside, or the main drum bearings could be failing.

Washer drum not rotating


Hi,

The reason for the washer drum not to rotate is either the belt or the motor. Check the belt. It may be broken or, it may have slipped of the pulley or drive motor. If the belt is fine, replace the motor.

Front loader noisey


Hi.

If you remove the belt and turn drum by hand, it should revolve freely and without any noise.

If it is noisy or feels stiff, then you proabably have main drum bearing failure.

Could be expensive to put right
