You can turn it on in spin mode with the lid down. Motor should come on when you turn on the it will have a spin down noise and a click when you turn it off. Belts normally have a burning rubber smell when they go out but this can also be caused by drive problems.

My drum will not spin.


Try to determine , by removing the belt from the motor, if the drum will turn by hand, and if the motor will run with out the belt on it.
Likely the drum will turn by hand, and if the motor will not run alone, either the motor is bad, or the control panel is not telling the motor to do it's job.
Some washer motors also have an overheat switch, that can be clogged by lint, but I am pretty sure your does not.
God bless your efforts.

Ford Ranger 4 Cyl/Mazda B-2500 Serpentine Belt Trick


Every once and a while, that Serpentine Belt goes nuts. You can tell when you have a bad Serpentine Belt because the lights will flicker, you go through batteries and Alternators, and then just as you give up - pow - you're dead because of the belt.

When you replace the belt, take the valve cover off, and make sure that your engine is sitting at TDC - you can tell because the first valve will sit level. This is the only way you can make sure that the top of the motor is in sync with the bottom of the motor.

There is no timing gears on the valve belt guide, so you have to eye ball it.

Enjoy!

My Frigidaire fex831fs4 washer motor hums but wont start.i took belt off.still hums no start even when timer is not set to run.if I close lid motor hums then kicks out then it trys again.thanks 4 help


I appreciate your post, Mike!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire washer motor will hum and not start. In order to test each component you would need to have the proper electrical equipment. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper repairs. They will have the necessary equipment needed to complete your repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

How can i tell if the belts need replaced or if transmission is bad it will spin but not aggitate


in order to answer your question i need to know the brand when oil is arround belt the transmission is the problem also it has to make noise when spinning that will prove the transmission is bad. on the other hand on same washers when tansmission goes bad it leaks by the seal, son the motor has a speed sensor that when it gets wet it goes bad an the motor will spin but will not agitate.

My serpentine belt is constantly being ripped apart. And when I switch gears my motor rocks and my car jerks. In addition the car is beginning to rock when its at rest.


ok. Your serpentine belt being ripped apart means the pulley's are not in align. You have to look and see where the faulty pulley is and replace it. this should hold your belt in alignment. The jerking could be because of a faulty motor mount. Have it put up on a hoist and tell shop what you are experiencing. I'd be willing to be they find its a bad motor mount that has worn our rubber on it....good luck!

CONVEYOR BELT NOT MOVING ON THE IMAGE TREADMILL


This could be because the belt on the motor that turns the belt you walk on is worn out. it has grooves on this belt that must be prominant to stay in the groves on the front roller and motor. The motor belt can be ordered for about 20$ shipped on ebay the motor belt number is 118016 this is a universal belt and fits this treadmil. Before buying the replacement belt check to see if this is for sure your problem. you can tell by opening the front of your treadmill and looking at the belt. You will see worn spots on the motor belt, or as I noticed when mine went bad, it will look like someone threw a bunch of rubber eracer shavings in your treadmill.

Washing machine wont will wash but wont do anything else


Hello,Sounds like you have a broken belt or a bad motor. The easiest way to tell if the belt is bad is to reach inside the drum and turn it. If it turns very easily, you probably have a bad belt or something has caused the belt to jump off, such a s a loose pulley or bad bearing. If it feels like there is a good amount of resistance, or a kind of "winding up" noise, then the belt is still on and you likely have a bad motor. Also, you could just scoot the machine out, unplug it, and remove the back cover a look inside to see if the belt is still on the pulleys.

Thanks

Thinking about buying a 2002 Galant but it needs a timing belt its a 4cyl.just need to know if it is a zero tolerance motor. to see if it may have bent valves.thank you!


remode all plugs and turn the motor over by hand
that will tell you if it a zero tol motor
remember to insert 1 plug at a time to see is the piston has compression and make sure if you fine a bad cyl to spin the cam a couple of degres to make sure it is just open valves and not bent or broken valves

if for some reason with plugs all out and motor will not turn then it is a zero tol motor and will likely need a head job with the timing belt

Magic chef cav2000aww no spin. Is there a clutch ajustment from under the machine on pully,


Hi,
I would request you to please do the following steps to verify why it’s not spinning.
If when the spin cycle is turned on and there is a humming sound but there is no movement the belt is the problem.

Smells like burning rubber and won't cycle.


NORMALLY IF A BEARING GOES BAD YOU CAN HEAR A SQUEAKING NOISE OR SOME TYPE OF METAL GRINDING NOISE IF YOU DID'NT HEAR ANYTHING THEN CHANCES ARE YOUR BEARING IS GOOD AND ITS JUST THAT THE BELT WAS WORN OUT
