Re: Can hear the motor running but the tub does not turn.
This model of washer does not have a belt, but it does have a coupler between the motor and the transmission. To check the coupler and see if it's okay you'll need to remove the case (the case is both sides, the front, and the top. They all come off as one piece.). To remove the case, locate the 2 screws on each side of the control console. On older machines these are located on the front and on newer machines these are located on the back. The screws are Phillips and go in at an angle. Loosen these screws but don't remove them completely. There are keepers to hold these screws in place. When loosened enough you should be able to flip the control console up and backwards so that it is out of the way. Next you should unplug the lid switch which is located either near the center or the left side of the washer top. Next, use a large flat blade screw driver to press inward and pry out the 2 brass spring clips that hold the case in place. After doing that, the case should be free and you can remove it.
Next you want to move the water pump out of your way. The pump is near the floor in the center of the washer and has 2 black rubber hoses going to it. Use a flat blade screw driver to pry off the metal clips that hold it onto the motor. When you remove the clips, just grab the pump and pull it towards you. Move it over to the left and use something to keep it out of your way.
Next you'll need to remove the motor. First you should unplug the harness going to the motor. On most models there is also a capacitor located on the right side of the motor. Be careful to only grab the plastic on the wires when you unplug them so you don't shock yourself. On some models there is an additional 2 wire harness that controls the 3rd speed on the motor, unplug this also. Next, remove the screw in each of the 2 clips that hold the motor on. Use a flat blade screw driver to remove the lower clip first then put your hand under the motor and hold it while you remove the second clip. Be careful because the motor is heavy and you don't want to drop it or smash your hand. You can use a glove here for extra protection.
Once you remove the motor you should be able to access the motor coupler. One half is on the transmission and the other half is on the motor. You should also see a rubber isolation grommet that goes in between each half of the coupler. Visually inspect all 3 pieces of the coupler for damage. If you need to replace it, use part number 285753A.
Reassemble the machine and test for proper operation.

You will need to remove the FRONT panel of the washer to access the interior so you can view the drive belt. Some of these panels come off by locating two retaining clips (each one about two inches on from each side) in the seam where the top meets the front panel. Use a putty knife to push in to release the clips and the panel should come off. Or, there may be two screws located at the very bottom of the front panel that you will need to remove. The following link has a helpful diagram to assist you:
The drive belt is located at the very bottom of the cabinet under the wash tub. Check the belt for obvious signs of wear, cracks, or breakage. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
Normally the way to change the light is to remove the interior access panel OR ... (if no access panel) remove the oven cover to get access to the lamp. Two screws on each side and 6 or 8 on the back side. Lift and tilt and slid the cover from the front interlock seam and set it aside. DON'T TOUCH the silver can you see on the side. Find the lamp, remove and replace and put the cover back on.
Allow 15 minutes to do this job. Get a replacement lamp where appliance parts are sold.
the only panel in the back that can be removed is at the bottom where the vent hose hooks up....the way to get to the belt is. remove the screws where the lint screen pulls out ...pop the top section of the dryer...their are 2 clips in the seam at the top of the dryer ....about 2 inches from the edge use a flash light to see them ...use a screw driver ....go between the horizontal seam at the top to pop ..then their are 4 screws holding the front of the dryer.2 at the top .2 at the bottom ..only loosen bottom screws do not remove them ..then the front of the dryer with the door can be removed ..now you can install the new belt ...remove the lower panel in the back to see motor ...the drum pully //tensioner this is where you put the belt on the pully ..let me know ..if you need more help....good luck../joe
Belt is broken. Remove front cover of washer. If you look where top meets front in the seam there are two clips, using a flat head screwdriver push into seam and pop clip. Front will then remove. Check belt at bottom of unit. Replace with the same belt. Difficult to get new belt on! You have to start with belt on motor pulley then on drum pulley holding and turning drum pulley as you stretch belt around pulley. Replace front cover.
Unplug dryer, then pry the front left and right corners of the top up and try not to scratch the paint. Tilt the top back to the wall behind dryer. unplug door switch and remove sheet metal screws from inside of front. Then as pulling the front away from drum reach inside door with one hand and lift the drum up slightly as to relieve the weight of the front of drum up off of the plastic slides that serve as a resting place and friction guide for drum. Then again lift drum slightly and slide belt back around the drum, put front and top back on after deciding if you can feed the belt around motor pulley and spring loaded idler pulley from above or a square door in bacl of dryer. There are a lot of ways the idler pulley has the belt fed through. But I think you will make it ok, Let me know, Sea Breeze
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.
Open the door and remove four screws which go into the dryer top. Swing top back. Take out the screw on each side holding the dryer front to the side panels near the open top. Tilt the dryer front forward and lift it off the bottom pegs, then swing it to the side. Leave door switch wires connected. Lift up slightly on drum to allow the belt to be placed around drum. (grooves of WE12X82 belt touch the drum) Belt goes down from the left side of the dryer directly to the grooved motor pulley, then around the belt tensioning pulley and back to the drum. Your model has a removable panel at the bottom side of the back which will allow easy access to the motor pulley area.
belt would squeak. but a horrible noise would probably be coming from the gear box. it may need a simple lubrication to the worst of replacing the whole gear box.
check it underneath the tub. if you can remove the housing and run it while it is open and see or hear where the noise is coming from. be careful on the moving parts once it is running with out a housing.
