How do i change a belt on a indesit washer machine its a wd 12


Usually there is a back panel that can be removed to give access to the motor and pulley wheel for the drum. If not then remove the top panel and look down the back and you will see the big drum wheel. you will also be able to see the spindle for the motor at the bottom. Reach down to the motor and hook the belt around the spindle and place as much of it as possible on the pulley then turn the wheel to pull the rest of the belt on. It can be a little tricky but the only other way is to completely remove the back half of the machine. If you get stuck try www.espares.co.uk and check the advice centre, it gives a video on how to change a belt, most machines are similar. Hope this helps.

Change drier belt on model number 41794702300 Kenmore stackable


1. UNPLUG UNIT. 2. On the front of the unit, remove two screws from the bottom panel. Remove it and you will see two screws holding the top panel and door in place. 3. Remove the screws and gently pull up and out on the door panel, INSURE NOT TO PULL ON THE WIRES LEADING TO THE DOOR SWITCH. 4. Remove wires from door switch. MAKE SURE TO NOTE WHICH WIRES CONNECT TO WHICH TAB. 5. Set door aside and you will have complete access to drum. Remove old belt, if necessary, noting now it is around the drum and weaved through or around the tension bar below the drum. 6. Once removed, or if there is no belt, or a broken belt, put the new belt around the drum so that the slack hangs below the drum. NOTE: You will probably see a black mark around the drum where the belt has laid, about in the middle of the drum. Lay the belt on that path. 6A. Lay on your back with both hands available, raise drum slightly to get access to the belt. Take slack in belt, raise tension bar slightly out of the way, bring belt UNDER the pulley on tension bar and put it around the pulley/spindle on the motor. (This may take another hand) Slowly lower tension bar back down to make contact with belt, applying tension to belt. 7. Get the door panel and reconnect the door switch. 8. Start to put door panel in place, while slightly raising drum to fit into position, careful to the raise to high or **** drum out of position off the back rollers or cause belt to slip off. Push door panel into place and put screws in. 9. Once you've got the door secure, test the belt by reaching inside and manually turning the drum clockwise until it seems to turn easily with not bumps. This is allowing the belt to settle into place and insuring it is not going to pop off; if it does, repeat the operation. If it turns easily, move on to... 10. Replace lower panel. 11. Plug in unit and test to insure drum moves freely. If not, you may need to readjust the way the door panel fits in place with the drum, or the belt on the tension bar. 12. If you need further help, please let me know.
Good luck. It's simpler than it sounds. G

Dryer wont tumble the belt has come off and also the spring system, ho can this be fixed?


Follow the bellow steps in order to replace the belt:

  1. Safety first! Unplug the machine from the wall-socket and make sure the machine has been idle long enough so that the heater elements, etc. have cooled.
  2. 180px-p3090017.jpg magnify-clip.pngTop cover removalRemove the top cover of the machine by undoing the 2 bolts at the back of the top panel.
  3. 180px-p3090016.jpg magnify-clip.pngTop cover removedYou should now be able to see if the belt is broken or not. It should be wrapped around the back of the drum. In this picture, you can see it has snapped and is loose on the drum.
  4. 180px-p3090047.jpg magnify-clip.pngRemove plastic coverRemove the plastic cover at the bottom rear of the machine and take off the black belt going from the red pulley to the white pulley (this turns the fan).
  5. 180px-p3090019.jpg magnify-clip.pngAir-flow coverAt the back of the machine, undo the 5 or 6 bolts securing the air-flow cover...
  6. 180px-p3090020.jpg magnify-clip.pngAir-flow cover removed...revealing the drum securing e-ring and washers.
  7. Remove these and keep them in a safe place for now. 180px-p3090023.jpg magnify-clip.pnge-ring & washers
  8. 180px-p3090034.jpg magnify-clip.pngdrum and back panelThe drum is no longer holding in the back panel of the machine.
  9. 180px-p3090037.jpg magnify-clip.pngBack PanelUsing a 7mm socket wrench, remove the screws holding in the back panel of the machine. Take care to support the panel (and the drum) as the screws are removed. A second pair of hands is useful here!
  10. 180px-p3090025.jpg magnify-clip.pngBack panel removalTaking care to support the drum, move the back panel away from the machine slightly. Do not move more than a few inches yet!

How do i change my tumble dryer belt on a beko thanks


Just changed the belt on a Beko DRCS68W and its a real pig! Remove the top panel and loosen all screws on complete back panel having removed circlip holding the drum spline on to the back panel. You will also need to disconnect wires/leads on top right inside panel to give you more space. Once you have done this you should be able to ease away the back panel far enough to get the new belt around the drum and over the drum spline in the middle. Then the tricky bit - getting the belt tensioned on to the motor drive spline. I did this before securing the drum and back panel, which gives a bit more flexibility. I also used about 15ins of 15mm copper pipe to ease the belt down over the motor spline. Hard part was getting the back panel back lined up with the screw holes as the belt tension distorts the casing. Finally hit on the idea of lying the machine on its side so the weight of the drum is pulling away from the motor and helping to line up the screw holes. Two and a half hours later job done! I guess if I ever did another it would be a whole lot easier but still not the type of job I relish!

Can't Put Belt On


You have to remove the front of the dryer to
access the drum. First unplug the dryer.There are screws at the bottom of the front to remove the lower section. Once you remove that you can get to the screws for the door section. The front of the drum rides on the inside of the front panel so when you remove the panel the drum will drop down. Try to keep the drum in place with something to hold it up. Remove the old belt and place the new belt around the drum. Slid the belt back to where the belt used to ride and then loop the belt around the motor and the tension wheel. Make sure the tension wheel is tightening the belt. Hold up the drum and put the front panel back on. You may need a helper to hold things while you do this. Rotate the drum by hand and make sure it moves smoothly. Plug it back in and give it a try. I hope this helps. Any questions feel free to ask. Please rate me so I know if I'm Helping. Thanks.

My Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 washing machine drum is not rotating


I think the belt has come off or has been damaged.

To open the machine slide out the machine. On the back panel lower 1/3 you will see a plastic panel remove the screws and the panel will come away. Inside you will see the belt. I suspect you will need to reattach the belt of remove it and buy a replacement.

Asko T700 loose belt, access from front?


I think you must replace the belt and the tensionarm. It MUST be done from the backside of the machine... Remove the backpanel, and the drum, change the tensionarm, and put the drum into the machine again. Put on the new belt, and mount it together again. Be careful for sharp edges! Hope this helps :-)
