Based on this diagram of your model you don't have a belt. You have a motor coupling instead. It's part 13 on the diagram. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=504857&diagram_id=132297#d132297

Clothes do not spin as much as they used to when i use the gentle cycle It seems to spin much more effectively on the main wash cycle but I do not use this cycle much.This machine is 20yrs. and has given...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If your washer is a front loader it MIGHT be that the belt is slipping, although I would expect it to slip more on the main wash spin cycle than the gentle spin cycle! Sorry to ask but are you sure that it doesn't spin as much on gentle as it used to?
Just in case it is a belt problem, here are my guidance notes on having it changed ;-0)
-----------------------------------------
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If it turns out to be the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished.
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

How to replace the belt on a Samsung J845 frnt loader washing machine


If you stand in FRONT of the washer, leaning over the top, the drive wheel is underneath the main drive motor, on the RIGHT hand side.  Loop the belt over the drive motor wheel, then over the main pully, and it should be good to go!

Loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer


Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps

Error F 04


im not up to speed with the codes. BUT if you are able to open the door this suggests the bulk of the water has pumped away, so I suspect motor or belt problems. Can you hear the motor spinning when it should be? ie on spin cycle. If not suspect carbon brushes in motor, or even a broken/burned out wire to motor. Replace belt if broken

GE washer spins slowly -Clothes still wet


Doesnt make any sense why the motor goes off and on. If I read your email correctly. some typos on your email. but, sounds like the belt is too big. Or the spring device that keeps the belt tight is not working properly. You need to make sure what ever it is that keeps that belt tight is working properly or not damaged. The belt is very important to making the spin work good. Match it up with your old belt. The old belt will be slightly longer because of being stretched over a period of time. Get your unit number and model number and go to your nearest dealer and get the correct belt.
