Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
No, it's not missing anything except a new belt! Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by you clearly:-
Sorry but here are my pre-typed complete guidance notes-
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!
Hope this is your problem solved.
