1 Answer

My washing machine is not working properly when moving the washing machine out of my apartment I noticed that one of the pulleys was ruined and the washing machine was smoking very badly it is the pulley on the right hand side of the washer on the bottom and also the belt is ruined. How hard would it be to replace and also how do I get a hold of Magic Chef to see if the washer is still under warranty.

Go to repairclinic.com or partselect.com to get the parts, you will need a model number.

Honestly I dont know if Magic Chef even builds washer anymore or has in the past several years. with that I would assume your warranty has expired. You will need copies of when you bought the washer and a copy of the warranty to full fill any warranty claims plus an authorized Magic Chef service agent will have to preform warranty work if it is still under warranty.

Washing Machine Will Not Spin


Well, if you have one of the old Maytags that have a motor sitting on a sled plate with separate pulleys running underneath for the tub and drain pump, then it might be that the slide which the motor sits on is not sliding back and forth easily. Try manually moving/sliding the motor until the basket starts to spin. If that does the trick, then you might be able to just lubricate the sled so it will slide properly.

If you have one of the newer belt drive types that has a single belt on it, then it could be the shifter or the splutch.

Let me know what you find and good luck!

Replace washer spin basket kenmore elite 110


sounds like a bad bearing on the rear of the tub. If you remove the rear access panel you will see a large pulley and belt. That attaches to the inner drum (basket) and spins it. It floats on a bearing just behind the pulley. If the bearing is bad then you will be able to move it up and down about .25 to.50 of an inch.

It could be the main shaft on the drum or misalignment. There is some flexibility, but not a lot. Check for worn belts, pulley wheels, and other attachments.

I have a Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine (GHW9100LW1). The washer stopped spinning, but the motor was going. I took off the back and noticed that the belt had come off and there was a lot of black...


The first thing to determine is if the pulley is loose due to wear on the pulley or if the spin bearing in the outer tub is bad.

Remove the belt. Make sure the nut holding the pulley in place is tight.
Wiggle the pulley while shining a bright lamp on it.. is it loose on the shaft or is the shaft moving.
If the shaft is moving.. outer tub needs to be replaced.. and in some cases this means the spin basket as well.

If you remove the pulley..and the inside mating surfaces which are flat on two sides are worn or rounded off.. bad pulley.. the retaining nut may not have been tightened properly.. or it became loose up over time,

However the black dust means the belt has been slipping ..some dust is probably normal due to age.. rubber breaks down..but a lot of dust means friction.. which means something is not turning as freely as it should.

So it has to be a loose retaining nut, worn pulley..or worn failing outer tub bearing.. I am afraid it's more than likely the last one.

Sears Parts Direct will have diagrams for your model..

Best of luck

Admiral Capacity plus, 2 speed, model# LNC6760B71 stopped in mid cycle, found motor pulley burned right off, belt on floor. How do you find out what caused this ?


possible the belt had stretched and the pulley was turning but the belt wasnt moving causing it to get hot and break
make sure the electric motor is turning and also the pulley that turns the wash tub, fit the new belt and make sure you tension the belt or it will slip again and ruin the new belt

Washing machine will not spin or agitate.


It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.


  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.


If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

Belt


We'll assume no problems with the belt installation - the tensioned idler pulley is pressing against the belt etc.
You didn't say whether it drained out OK or specify what model but it sounds like the brake is stuck or there's something caught in the basket. Try turning the main drive pulley (the one in the middle) Even with it full of water it should turn freely. Take the tub top off and check for foriegn obects stuck between the basket and outer tub. A wire coat hanger works well fro this.

Front loader washing machine = black streaks on clothing


I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,
