You have to remove the front remove the drum and there you will see in the bottom right usually the motor and a tensioner. it could've jumped off the motor or the tensioner spring may have sprung. either way it is fairly easy to fix.

Hi i have a speedqueen awm373w-3062 have noise on


Hello.

Loud noises coming from a Washing Machines are most often caused by loose objects inside the unit or by a broken dryer belt. The Washing Machines belt allows the dryer's motor to run smoothly. Continuous wear and dry conditions may cause the belt to dry out, eventually Washing Machines cracking and then snapping. This will cause a loud noise within the unit. Repair and fix the dryer belt of a Washing Machines to get rid of loud noises.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed to solve the problem.

Screwdriver ,Replacement Washing Machines belt

1 Stop the Washing Machines and look inside the dryer's drum for any loose objects such as coins, pens or anything else that may have been in a pocket of clothing. Remove the object and restart the dyer to determine if the noise has stopped.
2 Unplug the Washing Machines from the wall outlet to disconnect all power to the unit.

3 Remove the lint trap from the lint compartment on the top of the dryer.

4 Remove the screws that hold the top panel in place. Pull the panel off to access the
dryer belt.
5 Tilt the dryer forward and lift the dryer drum to remove the belt. Check the Washing Machines belt. A belt that is worn, cracked, split or broken will cause loud noises.

6 Slide the old belt off of the drum and pull it out to remove it. Take note on how it is positioned over the drum.
7 Install the new belt. Lean the front panel away from the Washing Machines and slip the new belt over the drum. Locate the position of the old belt and slip the new belt following the old belt's position ensuring the grooved side of the belt faces down. Push the idler pulley towards the motor to allow you to slip and loop the belt around the motor pulley.
8 Place the top panel on the Washing Machines and screw it in place.
9 Open the Washing Machines door and use your hand to rotate the drum counterclockwise a few turns to ensure the belt is secured.
10 Plug the Washing Machines into the wall unit and begin use .

How do I change the belts on a Hoover "Apollo Deluxe" clothes dryer approximately 1995 vintage


Remove the top cover by removing the screws at the back of the machine and sliding the cover off forwards. Now you need to obtain access to the complete circumference of the drum to fit the belt. Depending on your machine you can either remove the front of the dryer, or release the rear bearing support so that you can slide the new belt over the drum and under the bearing retainer, which may entail removing the back cover as well. The belt then just slips over the motor pulley and you need to check on the belt tension, usually done by adjusting the motor or the tensioner.

How to fit a belt for a indesit dryer ISL70c


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please follow the step-by-step procedure---

1. Remove the front panel.
2. Reach underneath drum and behind motor to locate idler pulley. Push idler pulley to left to release drum belt tension. Remove the belt from the motor pulley.
3. Remove the drum and belt from the cabinet.

1-- Prepare for replacing the dryer belt by lifting the lint-screen cover on the top of the dryer. Then remove the lint screen. Skip this step if your lint screen is inside the door. Remove the 2 Phillips screws inside the door instead.
2-- After removing the lint screen, lift the cover and remove the screws that hold the lint-screen housing to the dryer top.
3-- Slide a putty knife between the front panel and the top near a corner. Lift the corner and repeat on the other side.
4-- To remove the lower panel, insert the putty knife between the panel and each side. Then twist to release clip.
5-- Place a few wood blocks under the drum. These support the drum when the front panel is moved away from the sides.
6-- Loosen the screws that secure the bottom of the front panel to the dryer sides. Do not completely remove the screws.
7-- Remove the screws that secure the front panel to the dryer sides at the top. These are accessed from the inside of the cabinet.
8-- Lean the front panel away from the sides and slip the new dryer belt over the drum. Then re-secure the front panel.
9-- Check that the lip on the back of the dryer drum fits properly against the seal on the rear bulkhead of the dryer.
10-- Locate the original position of the old belt, and slip the new belt in place. Keep the grooved side of the belt down.
11-- Push the idler pulley toward the motor and loop the doubled-up belt around the idler pulley. Slip belt around motor pulley.
12-- Rotate the drum counterclockwise a few turns to check belt tracking. Then replace remaining components and test run.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Heating works but drum doesnt turn.


Try turning drum, or remove top from dryer to confirm if belt has gone. When turning drum there should be some resistance as the belt fits around the drum

Fanbelt of hoover #nextra# tumbledryer needs replaced


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

I need to change the belt for my Kehmore Series 80 dryer


HI. this guide will help you replace this worn belt. make sure you have safely unplugged this unit before initiating this procedure.



1 From the top of the dryer, remove the lint trap. Using your screwdriver, unscrew the assembly that houses the lint screen and remove it from the dryer, setting it aside.

2 Using your screwdriver as a lever, insert it under the front right side of the dryer, between the top and the body. Press down to force the top slightly up from the body. Repeat this process on the left side, and lift the top off the dryer.

3 Remove the lower panel from the dryer by inserting the screwdriver into each side and rotating to release the clips that hold it in place. Slide your phone book under the now-exposed dryer drum so that the drum will be supported.


4 Loosen the screws at the bottom of the front cover, but do not remove them (this allows access to the belt without requiring you to remove and replace the entire front cover). Move to the top of the dryer, and remove the screws holding the front of the dryer in place. (These will be located at the top, behind the front.) Tip the cover toward you, exposing the drum, and slip the broken belt off the drum without fully removing. Slip the new belt over the drum, and lift up on the drum while returning the cover to the closed position. Replace the screws to the front cover and tighten the lower screws. Remove your phone book from its position under the drum.

5 Check the rear drum seal to the back of the dryer, and position the new belt identical to the old, with the textured side facing down.

6 Directing your attention to the motor area, remove the old belt and feed the new belt through, passing the entire belt, doubled over, under the idler pulley. Push the belt toward the motor pulley, placing the belt around it, and allow the tension to release on the idler pulley.


7 With your hand inside the dryer drum, rotate the drum counterclockwise to ensure that the belt has been properly installed. Replace the top of the dryer, exerting downward pressure for a snug fit, followed by replacing the lint screen assembly, and the lint trap, and then replacing the lower front cover.

8 Run the dryer for several minutes to ensure that the dryer is operational and that you have installed your belt correctly.

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!
