Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I am having to assume this is a front loader!
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
Good luck,
John C

My Frigidaire Crown top loading washer (M#-CRWS5700ASO) makes a frightening squealing noise on spinning. How to tell if it's a bearing or a belt? If a bearing, tell me about replacing it. Than


Good Morning Steve Wilkes, thank you for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is squealing and making a loud noise while it is spinning. I understand that you would like to know how to locate if the bearing is bad or the belt. Unfortunately there are no instructions to provide you to locate which part could be faulty. Since it could be either one of these issues I would recommend contacting a professional technician to have a diagnosis to be completed this will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

The tub does not turn in the rinse/spin cycle but the motor is running.


Hello Jwwood,

Your Frigidaire GLTF2940F washer is not moving when it is washing clothes. This is because the belt is broke you can locate the belt on RepairClinic.com. Before you order the belt you need to findout the length as there are many different lengths and styles. In order to get to the belt you need to remove the back of the unit. If it is broke as I beleive measure and post back to this thread or go to the following link find the proper size and order. LInk - http://www.repairclinic.com/Frigidaire-Washing-Machine-Belt-Parts


Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Washer will not spin


Hi, If it doesnt spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not 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.
Thank you !

Will not spin,


Washing machines may drain but doesn't spin because of the following reasons:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. 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.


  • A belt may be broken. 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.)


  • The drive motor may be defective. 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.


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • Thank You
