The pulley should have a bolt in the middle of it, or an arm, that adjusts the tension..

The agitator on my washer seems to be slipping or stripped. How do I get into it to see if it's loose or needs to be replaced?

On some washers, you may be able to tilt it to look under it. There should be a main rubber belt that drives the agitator and other components, see if there is any slack or looseness in the belt. It should be pretty tight. If it is not, you may look for documentation on how to tighten it or else you might consider a replacement belt in some cases.

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.

Belt slipping have tried to tighten, just bought used

When the belt slips, it can be 2 different places. The trick is to look at the front roller when the belt slips. If the front roller stops with the walking belt, then the drive belt (between the motor and front roller) is loose and can't be fixed by tightening the walking belt. If the drive belt is slipping, it needs to be tightened or replaced. I need the brand and model number to help you further.

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.

Our belt came off but we don't know how to put it back on

1. Look and find the pulley tensioner of your
washer, and loosen it up. This is a bolt holding
the motor base,and allow the base to move and
loosen the belt or tighten it.
2. When it is loose, you just put the belt back on the
big pulley track and then, on the small pulley.
3. Full the tensioner back in place to tighten the belt.
Just follow this instruction, and solve your problem.

Loose Belt Drive

Remove the rear cover on the unit and see if the belt is loose. It should not stretch more than 3/4" when you pull on it. There may be an adjusting bolt on the motor to tighten the belt. Disconnect power before working on the unit!! You should have an owners manual for this unit. Check it for further information.

you can't really tighten a belt, I suggest that you change it, although it is extremely hard to replace a a new belt yourself. Have you checked the carbon brushes in the motor do not need changing, this could also generate a burning smell and leave you clothes wet if they are worn.
