Question about Electrolux EW1000i Front Load Washer
My Electrolux front loader stops a few seconds after starting as the belt flies off. I put it back on but no use. It seems tight enough but I can't see any adjustment on the motor.
This is great thanks Oz (wizard of?) and I have done T.V. repair years ago when you could repair the darn things. I'll get on to this sequence you recommended, as soon as possible and will of course keep you informed. I really appreciate your taking time out to flow through my problem and it is delightful to hear form you. Thanks again. Curragh

Now as these belts are under tension (very similar to the timing belt of a motor vehicle) it is advisable to replace them from time to time, and especially (in your case) where the belt has come off of its sproket.
Now my solution would be to unbolt the motor from the chassis mount, and fit the belt around the drum sproket, once you have done this, you then locate the motor to its mounting point, and then run the belt onto the motor sproket.
Always ensure that all bolts are tightened to the correct torque, and that nothing is loose or "flaps about". May also be beneficial to check your floor to make sure it is not uneven, as any uneven ground will cause the front loader to vibrate under operarative load. This in turn can make nuts and bolts work their way loose, then the belt looses tension and elasticity.
the belt should be as tight to leave no more than 2/3 of an inch travel on it (meaning you can only push down on it, or move it in any direction by 2/3 of an inch, other than its intended directional function).
I wish you all the luck on this, and hope that this is the fixya for you, please let me know how you get on.
Best wishes, kind regards and,
