Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Loose belt I have a GE WLSR2000G2WW washing machine and the belt is loose. Can it be tightened if so how. I already have the front panel off and am wondering if loosening the four bolts that hold motor in place and pulling tight will do the job. Chris NH

Drain line clogged on Whirlpool model ET1CHMXKB09. How do I access the drain line?


Hello.

Washing machines, like any other mechanical device, occasionally needs servicing. A common problem with most old washing machine is that the spinner, or agitator, drain,or stops rotating during wash cycles. Fortunately, most washing machine problems are easy to troubleshoot. Any do-it-your self offer can fix it; here's how.

TOOLS NEEDED TO SOLVE PROBLEM ARE BELOW.

Bucket and rags,Screwdriver,
New drive belt (if necessary),
New drive motor (if necessary).

1 Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.

2 Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.

3 Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.

4 Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.

5 Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.

6 Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

Thanks.

Everytime I use my washing machine, I get the E3, then dc messages.. also, my belt (for the spin) seems as if it is slipping and can't turn the washer drum over... Then, after I can't take the running...


You get an error if there is something wrong with your machine, now that your washer drum doesn't turn and you are hearing a noise, the possible cause is that the belt alreadi slipped out, if you have the access of opening the back panel where you can see the inner part of the machine, try to replace yoour belt with a new one and install it, it is easy, it only take an adjustment of the bolts and screw, try not to tighten it too much.., make a little loose so that the belt can play.

Indesit wdl102 - Drum making a buzzing noise, like belt slipping. Alan D


Open the machine top and pull at the belt--it should not be loose. If it is, then remove the back panel to check the drive end of the belt. There should be a tension pulley held tight by a spring that may be weak or broken. If everything below looks ok, check the condition of the belt itself--it should not be cracked, hard, or missing segments. The front panel has to come off to replace the belt. If the belt looks ok, check for loose metal or plastic bars that are fastened to the interior of the drum--tighten any loose screws from the drum exterior side. Another possibility may be the drum front support bearings that are dirty or have failing bearings if the roller type. One further point is to look below the lint filter for anything that might have fallen into the blower fan. Hope some of this helps!

GE front loader does not go into final fast spin and does not drain.


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. It sounds like you may have a slipping (loose or stretched) v-belt. See if you can get the back off and look for a way to tighten the belt. This is a frequent problem. The built in a way to tighten the belt.

Belt replacement on GE top loader WJSE4150B2WW


Your post shows a model WJSR2070B and a model WJSE4150B2WW but in this case the procedure is the same. Use a putty knife to push in the clips at the top seam of the front panel, where the front meets the top, about two inches in from each side. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Loosen the four nuts holding the motor with a 3/8 inch wrench so you can push the motor back a bit. Take old belt off. Install new belt (WH1X2026), putting belt around motor pulley, part way on big pulley, then turning big pulley by hand to ride it onto the big pulley. Use one hand to pull motor toward you to put a little tension on the belt as you tighten the four nuts under the motor.
