The dryer turns on and clicks like it's going to work, but the drum won't spin. I've opened it up in the back and the pulleys look fine. There is a plug with a blackened end. Idk what I'm looking at.


It looks like the belt is not routed correctly. Belt comes down from left side of drum, then around right side of white pulley tensioner, then back to motor pulley. That way the tensioner keeps belt tight and untrips switch on pulley that stops power to motor when belt breaks. A safety switch. Generally you reach in with left arm near side of unit and right arm thru middle and feel around to accomplish this maneuver. Good luck.

Dryer belt is loose, how to adjust tension in idler arm?


It sounds like you didn't install the belt onto the idler pulley in the correct S-shape. The idler pulley should always keep the belt tight under spring tension (no adjustment screws).
Here is a video, and tho it is a completely different model, almost all dryer belts/pulleys are installed in this manner. You can skip to the 2:30 to 2:45 time frames, where it then shows exactly how to re-install the belt on the idler pulley.

Replace washer spin basket kenmore elite 110


sounds like a bad bearing on the rear of the tub. If you remove the rear access panel you will see a large pulley and belt. That attaches to the inner drum (basket) and spins it. It floats on a bearing just behind the pulley. If the bearing is bad then you will be able to move it up and down about .25 to.50 of an inch.

Loose Inner Drum on Tricity Bendix AW850W


Has the belt come off the pulley or the motor pulley? If not and it is in good condition has the belt stretched and not connecting properly or the motor slipped making the belt loose? Has the main pulley bolt come loose?

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    My front load washer has a load clunk when the drum is spinning. If I spin it by hand I can still hear it. I took the back off and it sounds like coming from inside the drum.


    Hello,

    Welcome to FixYa.

    Based on your description "My front load washer has a load clunk when the drum is spinning. If I spin it by hand I can still hear it. I took the back off and it sounds like coming from inside the drum"
    my first suspicion would be a worn tub bearing, unfortunately all too common with those Frigidaire.

    The tub bearing is likely worn, or the inner tub has broken apart.

    You can check this by way of opening the door and grabbing the inner basket rim and moving up and down to feel for play...there should be zero play or zero tolerance in this bearing.

    Second, since you`ve removed the back panel, grab the large pulley and try and move it back and forth or spin it with the belt off to listen for a grinding noise.

    If it is indeed worn it will require practically the complete tub assembly ( rear wall with bearing and inner basket )...that is the least expensive and easiest fix at around $400 for the entire assembly.

    example...

    You can opt to change just the rear wall and bearing with the basket in separate pieces, but it comes in around $370 and still leaves you with pulling the old one apart to re-use the front shell.

    Either way this is a fairly involved repair and even for an experienced tech like myself can take 60 - 90mins.

    Let me know what you find and I'll do what I can to assist you.

    Good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

    Regards,

    Macmarkus :)

    The drum does not spin, the blower works, the gas will fire up, belts look to be in tact but may be loose?


    Most gas dryers have a tensioner on the drive belt under the drum a metal bar with a teflon pully that is spring loaded to tension the belt. Try spining the drum by hand if it spins freely the belt may have come off the tensioner or it may be streched. If it doesn't turn the drum rollers or bushing may be bad. Without a make and moddel # it's hard to say
    Hope this helps

    Whirlpool cabrio dryer belt falls off after install


    If you're turning the drum backwards the belt will fall off. Make sure you're turning the same direction the motor will spin it.

    Belt keeps coming off the pulley


    I suggest you check your drum bearings, belt will only come off if misaligned.

    How do I reattach/replace the belt that causes the Hotpoint Ultima WF860 to spin?


    If you remove the back cover from the machine, you should see a big round pulley which attatches in the centre to the inner drum shaft. Below the drum you should see the motor. The belt goes around the big round pulley and onto the much smaller pulley on the end of the motor shaft.
