Question about Washing Machines
Good morning, I just opened up he my Kenmore washer front load model 417-42042100 and the belt has come off. I don't see a tension bar, so how do I replace it. Thanks
The question is why did the belt come off? this is unusual.
The belt does not have a tensioner the motor does this. you will need to loosen motor and then apply belt tension. Typical belt tension is 70lbs.
While you have the machine open make sure the driven pulley is tight, and doesnt wiggle or move you may have bearing problems.
How does the belt look, frayed or ripped you could have a bad belt unlikely but this could have been original problem, however check machine out first.
