Belt keeps coming off my candy ce104 - Washing Machines

    Thanks DickyIV1, it appears to be a new belt and very hard to get back on but you can see when you manually turn the drum that it's just working it's way off. It appears that the drum and the thing it also attaches to aren't in line anymore ?

    would this mean new bearings ?

    appreciate your thoughts !

If the belt is old it might have stretched or be wearing out. The cheapest solution would be to try a new one first before anything else.

If the drum bearings are worn then it might be wobbling around and that could be throwing it off.

Hope this helps. If so,I'd appreciate a rating for my solution. If it doesn't, feel free to add a comment with extra info and I'll try to think of something else.

Thanks, D

    If the two wheels that the belt turns on are not aligned any more, yes it's bound to fall off ! So we need to figure out which has moved. But first of all, does the belt have grooves in it on the inside? If so, the pulley on the motor will also have grooves, probably more than on the belt, so you can choose the "best" set of grooves to line up with the big wheel on the drum.

    Failing that, with the belt off, you could check by hand to find out if the rotating drum will move forwards and backwards inside the fixed drum, by which I mean will the inner drum move towards and away from the loading door? If so, then the drum bearing must be suspect.

    Also check the pulley on the drive motor to find out if that will slide along its shaft. It's got to be one or the other.

    I'm assuming that the machine used to work OK and only developed this fault recently.

    Let me know what you find. Thanks, D

Hi, got a new belt for my candy CM1 166/1 washing machine but it keeps coming off , its the correct belt , the pulley wheel does not have any play and hardly any on motor wheel either ,belt keeps going...

If the belt is coming off the pullies my be out of line .you need to put a straight edge across the two pullies to make sure they are level . And check there's enough tension on the belt .

Disable passenger seatbelt chime

Hi Candy, I'm glad to help!

Candy, I'm not sure why you want to disable the pass seat belt chime, maybe its going off even with no one in the seat. BUT, the only way to stop it would be to plug the seat belt into the buckle. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Candy

Drum paddles have come off

Sorry but the only answer to this is a new drum, possibly from the metal pile at the dump, or ask your local appliance guy if he keeps a parts pile out back, many do! Lastly is the terrible "New" drum. They are very easy to exchange. Take the front panel off the machine after unplugging it of course, and remove the two wire connectors from the door switch. It doesn't matter how you put them back on, it's just a loop switch.With the machine lying on it's back take a good look at the belt routing in particular at the bottom right hand corner and remember how it is wound around the drive wheel and the tensioner. then just remove the belt and slide the drum straight up and out.Also keep in mind which side of the belt goes against the drum(one side is ribbed). Take a few pix if you need, that always helped me. Thanks, Dana

Dryer not tumbling

A broken belt is very common. If you hear the motor running, that's probably it. The dryer must be taken all apart to replace the belt. Hopefully instructions will come with the new belt. Routing the belt over the motor shaft and around the tensioner is always a challenge.

your belt is probably broken, or your motor is bad, the motor and belt not only turn the drum, but also the fan that moves air out of your dryer so if it cannot move, the dryer gets hot and it thinks this is because the lint trap is full
