Question about Bosch Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
The main 'adjustment' is to purchase a new belt and NOT to attempt to put the old one back on!
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person, yourself in this instance ;-0)
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.
