Question about Creda W100FW Front Load Washer

The belt that drives the drum on my washing machine keeps slipping off, It is a brand new belt so have no reason to believe it has worn. When we put it back on it is so difficult to do, but as soon as it goes into a spin cycle, it comes straight off again!!!

Check the alignment of the pulleys, If they are not perfectly aligned the belt will be thrown off at high speed. Also check that the axles are parallel to each other because if a pulley rides higher on one side the belt will ride towards the higher point and be thrown off the pulley.

Might be the drive belt slipping on the pulley. The belt that supplies the power from the main motor to the drum sometimes slips at higher speeds and needs the belt tensioner adjusted to tighten the belt. A more expensive reason for the noise is a worn bearing in the main motor.

This is potentially very bad news I'm afraid. There are very few reasons for a belt to come off. Presuming that you are convinced it is the right size (and it probably is) Then there is a fair chance that the belt is coming off because the main bearing on the drum is worn out, allowing the inner drum (and therefore the large drive wheel on the back) to "flop about".

To test your bearings, open the door of the machine and by putting a little lifting pressure on the top of the inner drum, attempt to rock the stainless steel inner drup up and down.

The outer drum is mounted on springs and shock absorbers, so it will rock about (and it should do this) but the inner drum should not move up and down in relation to the outer drum. If the bearings are bad enough to allow the belt to dislodge then symptoms will typically include:

A clonking noise as you lift and releas the inner drum (this is the inner drum rattling on its bearings
You will have become aware of the spine cycle becoming far noisier recently and pissibly even a grinding crunching noise when the machine spins
The drum may feel like something is crunching or stopping you turning it when you spin it by hand with the door open
A leak from under the machine, which you will probably be able to trace to the back of the machine, coming from the centre of the drum. This is the result of the failing bearing allowing water to escape through the seal ar the rear

Instructions on how to replace belt on WF000 1000 spin washing machine

Changing the belt is easy. The reason for changing the belt is the question. If the belt keeps coming off on an aquaruis then it's usually a sign the bearings in the drum are shot. These things hardly ever need a new belt. That aside, I hope you have good reason to change the belt and there is the (Easy) way to do it.


Take the lid off. On this model I think you will fins a screw, hidden behind a little plastic prise-off cover, on either side of the lid about 2 inches back from the front of the machine.

Unscrew (Torque screws!!! but you MAY get away with a flat screwdriver that fits across the points of the star holes).

With the heel of your hand, strike the top front edge of the lid to make it slip baccwards about a half inch, this releases the clips that hold the back of the lid in place.

At the rear of the machine, at the bottom, there is an oval pannel about a foot wide and six inches deep held on by about 5 or 6 screws. Unscrew and remove the pannel. You can now see the drive spindle on the end of the motor.
Drop the new belt in from the top and hook over the drive spindle (you can see the position the old one was in on the slotted spindle because that portion of the spindle will be cleaner and shinier than the rest.
Now, holding part of the belt, guide it onto the main drum drive wheel (that huge wheel about 2 feet wide.
By turning the drum by hand slowly, you will be able to guide the belt onto the large wheel as you rotate the drum.

Having someone spin the drum by opening the door and turning it for you slowly may help

ALWAYS start with the belt on the motor spindle and guide onto the drum wheel, not the other way. You will never get it on if you start with it on the big wheel.

Unless you know the reason for swapping the belt, start worrying.... Occasionally these belts snap. Usually there is an underlying cause if they just "slip off"

When in spin cycle there is a grinding noise


Here are solution on how to solve the noisy problem.

Although a noisy washing machine is not typically a sign that something is broken, it definitely can be annoying. Usually the noise from a washing machine can be fixed fairly easily, but a few different fixes may need to be tried before it can be determined what the true culprit of the noise was.
Instructions what you need to solve this problem.

  • Flashlight,Screwdriver,Drive belt
  1. Check the drum bearings if the washing machine is making a rumbling noise. The noise may possibly stem from water getting into the bearings. Take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If there is a rumble, remove the bearings and replace them with new ones.
  2. Check the spider at the back of the drum. The spider is the three-armed device that holds the drum in place. If there is one loud noise on each revolution of the drum, there is a good chance the spider has partially become loose. Tighten the bolts on the spider to silence the noise it causes.
  3. Check for coins. If the noise the washing machine makes sounds like metal on metal, there is a good chance that some change has slipped from a pocket and is now in the dryer. Take a flashlight and look in the drum for coins, paper clips, and other small items.
  4. Adjust the legs. Many washing machines make more noise than they should because they have not been properly balanced. Re-adjust the legs to make sure that they are all even. This will keep the washing machine from moving and will ensure that the noise it creates while it moves will go away.
  5. Replace the drive belt. Often a high-pitched squeaky noise can come from a drive belt that has been worn down. Simply replacing the old belt with a new one will fix this problem.

Drive belt on hotpoint wm56 keeps coming off when machine goes on fast spin. I have fitted a new belt but it still keeps happening.

Make sure belt is reasonably tight, and it is in the center of the drum pulley, if it still comes off, then I would suspect that the drum bearings are worn, or the drum is running out of alighnment, or the motor bearings are worn, if it is noisy when you spin the drum by hand, then the bearings have definately failed.
Please rate my solution.

Front loading washing machine will not tumble or spin

This sounds like a drive belt porblem. The belt that connects the drum motor to the drum has slipped/broken/worn out. A new drive belt will most likey fix this one...

Alternately, a loose or broken pulley. I don't suspect a bad motor, since you say you can hear it clicking and whiring...

Dru wont turn at all

Hi, welcome to Fixya.

The belt has come off for a reason, and there are a few reasons for it to do so.

1- You have overloaded the m/c
2- It is not draining properly.
3- The main drum bearings have gone. Before replacing the belt spin the drum by hand, and if it is noisy or feels rough , then the bearings have gone.
That means calling an engineer.
4- Worn or broken belt.
To refit the belt, do the following.
Remove top cover, and rear panel.
Tilt the m/c forwards, and support it.
Reach inside and slip the belt over the motor pulley, then start feeding the belt round the drum pulley, it is fiddley, but this is the only way, as you get the belt futher round, it will get very tight, so don't trap your fingers, just keep on going.
If it slips off, start again.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, And a merry xmas.

Crunching sound at the commencement of spin cycle

The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.
