Question about Washing Machines
After replacing both the drive and pump belts, the clothes are still wet after the spin cycle. While looking inside the machine while the spin cycle starts, you can see the "clutch" disingage as the motor speeds up, but after about 50 seconds the clutch ingages again. I am not sure if I am getting maximum speed out of the motor?
I have a related problem and I just learned on the net that the Vbelt is supposed to slip in "idle" mode while the water pump will do more work.
It is also supposed to slip slightly while speeding the spinning up so as to not cause motor overload.A kind of half clutch function that allows for slipping. This slipping is controlled by the tensioner.
My guess is that your machine's v belt slips too much and thus does not spin fast enough. You replaced the belts, I would look at the tensioner now.
