Drive Belt Installation on a Whirlpool Front Loading Washer


This advice is on how to replace the drive belt on Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite front loader washing machines. To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and turn the washing machine around so you can access the back panel. Remove the rear panel by locating and loosening the screws around the perimeter of the panel.

2. Loop the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the drum pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

If you have any questions, or are uncertain if these steps apply to your washer (some newer model Maytag front loaders are now manufactured by Whirlpool) please provide me with a model number and I can let you know if these steps apply. I hope this information is helpful.

My washer wont spin or agitate and there was a burning smell


Hi
Older top load washers use a belt to drive to transfer the energy from motor to drum. However, if the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning "rubber" smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer. The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer
To replace the belt carefully pry up on front washer top to release plastic keeper pins, remove 2 Phillips screws from beneath lower front washer panel, slightly lift upward on panel to release. Now remove old broken belt, push new belt beneath large tub pulley and put belt on small motor pulley. After this push back belt tension /idler arm, start belt on large tub pulley, turn tub pulley by hand to run belt on, release tension on idler arm. Replace front panel and lower top.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I am trying to replace the drive belt on my Kenmore front load washer, model 41747102700. The old belt just fell off and was laying on the floor of the washer. In attempting to replace it it seems as if...


The belts on front load washers are very tight. The trick to putting them on is starting the motor side first. Wrap your belt around the motor shaft then while keeping your fingers there to hold it in place, use your other hand to start pushing the belt on the larger pulley while you turn it. The belt is going to try and work back off the motor pulley while you are turning the large pulley which is why you have to keep your fingers down there to hold it on. The new belt will have several grooves on it. Make sure these grooves are all meshed in the motor pulley grooves.

Kenmore front load washer 44052


Mine issue was a loose connection. I removed the back panel and pushed in all the wires. The washer started working again. If you take off the back panel and the belt is broken then that could be your problem. Unplug the washer first.

Spins very slow on rinse/drain and spin


Your filter &/or pump could be blocked. Remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter & clean out. Refit. If you have manual refer to it. Pl rate me if helped.
