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.
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.
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.
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.
Sounds like the drive belt is broken or very loose. Take off the back and check the belt. If loose or missing, tighten or replace. This is usually done by loosening the motor support bolts and moving the motor until the belt is tight, then re-tighten the bolts. Replace belt in the same way.
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.
