How to replace the belt on a Samsung J845 frnt loader washing machine

I have a Samsung front Loader Washing Machine- Model J845 -nif there was a picture of where the belt goes it would be great. I have a new belt and i know if will be relatively straight forward to install but i didn't see where the very unprofessional unfriendly rip off service tech took the old one from so not sure exactly where the new part belongs...and i'm sure not having him come back out!!

Any instruction would be great.

Thanks

    Standing bending over from the FRONT of the machine, looking down on top of the main drive pully / flywheel at the back of the drum, the drive motor is underneath on the RIGHT hand side.  Loop it over the drive motor wheel, then over the main drive pully and all should be good... I've gotta track down a place to buy a belt for ours  :-/

If you stand in FRONT of the washer, leaning over the top, the drive wheel is underneath the main drive motor, on the RIGHT hand side.  Loop the belt over the drive motor wheel, then over the main pully, and it should be good to go!

    We have replaced the belt which was badly deteriorated. But now the drive drive motor wheel seems to have stopped working. The washing machine will fill and empty water but the drum doesnt move. We followed the instructions above. Is there a trick to this or have we damaged something?

Have a Samsung J843 Front Loader Washing Machine. Belt melted, time for a new one. Cost $33 AUD for the belt (6602-001072 MegaDyne). As mentioned, the drive motor is at the bottom towards the right. Slide the belt down and fit around the motor wheel then loop around the main pulley and its ready to rock and roll. Do a test spin and rinse to make sure its working as normal and then happy spinning.

Please help! My samsung 7kg J845 front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door. Sarah


Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.

Samsung J845 front loader washing machine. Error


Hi
An OE error presents if the washing machine has not successfully drained the water in ten minutes.
there are a few simple steps to take before calling for service.
Step 1: Check the drain pump filter.
Items caught in the drain filter will prevent proper drainage. Over time build up can occur from detergents and additives used in the machine. Manually drain unit through the drain hose, then lay a towel down to catch the water, and remove the filter. Clean the filter thoroughly and restart the machine.

Step 2: Check the washers drain hose.
If the drain hose is not installed properly, the washer will not drain properly. The drain hose should not be installed more than 1 meter higher than the bottom of the washing machine.

Step 3: Confirm that the washer is leveled properly.
If the unit is not leveled properly, it will not drain properly. The front of the unit cannot be higher than the back or vice versa. If not properly leveled, the water can flow back into the machine. If this is the cause of the problem, please level the machine using the supplied leveling wrench. When you place a level on the washing machine, the bubble should be in the center. Confrim that the washer is leveled from side to side and front to back.
you can perform a diagonal test when leveling the washing machine to ensure that the unit does not tilt from corner to corner.

How to replace the belt on a Samsung J845 front loader washing machine


Its on the back of machine and after you remove the back cover plate youll see that its very easy to install the new one.You shouldnt have to use any tools to put on the new belt.Just loop it around the motor pulley and around the large tub pulley that you see right in front of you.It may even appear to be too tight while your winding it on the pulleys but its not .
