Yank out the filter, remove the filter housing screws. Lift the top up and get the front off. Lift out the drum and give it a good clean. Inspect wheels and idler. Place new belt ribbed side down to the drum. Make sure it ain't twisted. Place the drum back in the dryer and have a friend hold up the drum while you wrangle with the idler. Stick the idler in the floor below the motor and raise it up. Shove the belt through the idler and hook it onto the motor pulley. Let it go and the tension holds it in place. Turn the drum a few times to make sure it ain't twisted. If it is twisted bye bye belt when the dryer takes off. LOL. Here is a pictoral

My affinity front load washer drum will not move after the water goes in nothing else happens.


The belt needs tightening, remove the back, you will see a belt which goes around the drum & back to the motor, the motor has an adjustment feature that by moving it away from the drum tightens the belt, there should be no more than 8mm deflection either side of the belt when it is adjusted correctly, when this is done replace the back & your machine should spin & wash, If it does not after this simple fix then you either need a replacement panel (Electronics) or a replacement motor

Dryer is squeaking while in operation


Rear drum bearing may need lubrication or replacement. This bearing is located on the back of the drum and requires taking the washer housing apart to get to it. They sell a high temperature lubricant if that is all that is needed, but a small bit of automotive grease or bearing oil will work well. You may have to buy bearing replacement parts ie a drum rear bearing and post kit or a bearing replacement kit. You will need better than average skills to do this yourself. As soon as you take off the front panel the drum will have no support and will drop forward. Try not to let the drum belt to become to loose or the belt retention wheel may become disengaged and the belt will fall off. Make sure you unplug the dryer before taking ANYTHING apart.

The washing machine belt will move to agitate, but will not move to spin. The spin action burns up the belt. This is an Amana LWA50AW


open rear cover , see if belt slips. then remove belt and rotate empty drum if its jam than drum bearings need to change. if drum is free then belt might be loose and needs replacement.

I have a kenmore 27 inch electric dryer that when you push the start button it sounds like it starts but the drum doesn't turn. What could this be?


A clear indication that your dryer belt is broken is when the dryer drive motor runs but the drum does not rotate. A new belt is relatively inexpensive from several online or a local parts vendor, but installing it can be a bit frustrating since the dryer drum usually needs to be remove to install a replacement belt. Access to the interior of the dryer is usually necessary. For Maytag (and some Kenmore) models, the front of the dryer can be easily removed (two screws below front contour) by pulling out on the bottom of the panel and rotating up to release the top clips. Once off, place to the side, then remove four machine screws from the front drum/lint filter assembly, then remove by pullling out. Once off, place aside. Remove drum by lifting up and pulling out on drum (since the belt is broken it will not provide any resistance). Once removed, inspect the motor pulley arrangement noting the belt routing path around the motor pulley, belt tensioner, and the drum. Inspect the drum for belt wear marks, noting approximate location on drum where belt rides. Install replacement belt by routing through pulley arrangement (ridged side of belt rides againt motor pulley), then "hang" the belt on the interior backside to enable reaching the belt after reinstalling the drum. After placing the drum edge on the rear rollers, lift the front of the drum up into position, working the belt around the drum into the drum groove. Once the belt is in the groove, the drum should stay in position without lifting from the front. Check for proper pulley routing, taking care to avoid routing the belt OVER the tensioner belt keeper, i.e., route the the belt under the belt keeper to avoid belt riding on the keeper and failing prematurely. Install the front/lint filter assembly. As you manually rotate the drum, reach along the top and side of the drum and gently pull the belt out of the groove and into its normal ride position. Install the front panel, plug the unit in, start and check for proper rotation of the drum.

Drier Belt Replacement on GE model DDG7580


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.
