This is usually caused from a worn belt or a faulty belt tensioner. From the back of the dryer you should be able to see the belt tensioner and see if the wheel on the tensioner is turning. If it's not then you need a new tensioner, if it is then its likely to be a belt.
The other causes for this problem may be a drum wheel or drum bearing which has failed. The drum wheel hold the drum up and are located generally on the bottom of the drum. These wheels have a brass center for a bearing and if they are bad will generally cause a grinding or squealing noise.

My pfaff 1222e is running slow

1. Remove any stuck material from the feed dog, bobbin area including the hook (pointed object under bobbin). Lubricate as you go.
2. Remove top and end of sewing machine to look at the motor and belt. Place pressure on the foot pedal. Still slow?
3. With bolt attached to motor release the pressure on the belt. Now, place pressure on the foot pedal. Did you notice any increase in speed?
4. Apply pressure on the foot pedal and simultaneously adjust the motor. Adjusting means tightening of the belt and making it move in a straight line. (If it doesn't move straight it puts pressure on the motor so it will move slow.) When you have adjusted the motor to the right position the motor will be at it's highest speed.
5. If the pressure foot is the problem it will require a pro to take care of it.

Mower is the Swisher ZT 2660 runs great. Blades slow then stop during cutting, I changed belts (drive & deck). Last year you advised it maybe the electric clutch. Question is that a do it yourself...

I have this mower and had this same problem. It turned out the bolts holding the motor to frame backed out and were allowing the motor to tilt, and then the belts would slip and burn up. Check all motor bolts for tight, and if not tight change bolts and lock washers. Lock washers were not originally on these mowers.

My treadmill work fine when i turn it on but when i step on it the blet. slows down to crawl.

What make/model is the treadmill? What speed does this behavior occur? Does the walking belt slip, while the motor and rollers continue to turn? If the walking belt is slipping then the motor belt needs to be tightened. If the walking belt slows with your weight on it, does this happen at 1-3 mph and still occur at 4-5 mph? It could be your body weight causing it to slowdown, try to increase the speed to 4 or 5 and see if it still happens. If so, is the treadmill rated for your body weight? Please be more specific.

How do you replace the belt on a GE wwse5240g washer?The motor will not move without it being out of place to put the belt on. Does the pulley move?


The easiest way to install a new belt for a GE washer of your model is like putting on a bike chain.

**First unplug the unit.**

Then remove the front panel if you haven`t already.

Now rap the belt around one side of the motor pulley then get it started on the drive pulley. Hold the belt in place while spinning the drive pulley (watch your finger`s the edges are sharp and when the belt slips on it`s very tight...pinching could occur) and the belt should slip in place. You don`t remove the motor or even loosen it, it`s not necessary.

Good luck

Drum does not turn. Belt looks ok. fan turns ok

Belt could have slipped off because if the belt is in contact and the motor is moving it has to work. If motor is not turning then replace the motor.

Am trying to replace the belt on a hotpoint aquarius wf240 washing machine. I have removed the 2 bolts which appear to hold the motor in place ( 1 bolt on each side). However the motor still will not

Hi. The motor is non adjustable on this washer. Tilt washer forward, get someone to hold it steady, and put belt round motor pulley first, then slip belt on drum pulley, and slowly turn drum by hand, feeding the belt on as you turn drum, be careful not to trap fingers, as it is very tight, this is normal, as the belt is a stretch type, this is the reason the motor is non adjustable. Please rate my advice. Thanks.

Self-propelled feature runs slow and won't pull as it should!

Check the belt tension. There is a spring that holds the tension and connects the gearbox to the mower deck. If it has slipped off the belt will not be tightened properly.
Hope this helps.
