(repeat solution!) Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It has come off for a reason but don't just put it back on- purchase a replacement!
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
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.
Good luck,
John C

I had smoke smell coming from my maytag washer..got a tech guy to come out and fix it..he replaced the belts..said not to overload the machine..put in the usual load..wasn't much...now it happened...


Could be the belts were not adjusted properly or the drum is not turning free or the transmission is bad . I would call the tech back and demand he fix it or give money back for belts.

How do you fix a stuck or locked rear seat belt in a 1999 buick? if it cannot be fixed how do you replace it?


You are going to need to get to the seat belt mechanism itself. The seat belt may be wrapped around the pulley and may just need to be helped back on track. There might also be a finger that is locked into one of the channels. You can manually push this out of the way and reel the seat belt back up.

Should i take the back off to fix belt? will the


Belts are usually replaced fromt eh back service panel, but often it helps if you "pop the top". Put a screw driver in the seam at the front corners and pop the top upward. It will hinge at the back.

How to fix a stuck seat belt VW GTI 2009


I just solved the problem for a stuck rear center seat belt in my 2002 Jetta.

Flip the base seat cushion forward against the front seat backs. Trace down along the belt to its tether point on the floor. The belt is sewn around a steel loop. The loop is anchored to a black steel hook. A thin silvery retainer plate is spring tensioned on top of the loop to prevent it from sliding off of the hook when the seat back is folded.

Therefore, you need to press the silvery retainer plate away from the hook (push up) to allow the loop to be slid from the hook. The belt was tight with the seat back in the upright position, so it was necessary to fold the seat back forward to create slack in the belt. Now push the belt loop towards the trunk and slide it off of the end of the hook (only possible with the retainer plate pushed up out of the way).

Now with total release of tension on the system via the bottom end of the seat belt being untethered and with the seat back returned to the upright position, normal extension and retraction of the belt will be reestablished. Next, simply extend the seat belt and slide the loop back into place over the floor hook. It snaps past the silvery retainer plate without all the effort required to hold the plate up during removal of the loop during disassembly.

Check again, the seat belt should be extending and retracting properly. Now just put the seat cushion back into regular position and you will be able to safely buckle up three people across the back seat.

It took about as long to do this repair as it has taken to post this answer to the problem. Note, the seat belt safety mechanism only allows normal extension and retraction of the belt when the seat back is upright.

How to get back off to put belt on samsung b1445s washing machine


See if the motor has adjustment , ie a slotted fixing hole, slacken the fixing bolts slightly and motor may move up and down to give adjustment, put the belt on and then put some tension on the belt once fitted by moving the motor down and tightening the motor bolts at the same time.
Or if no adjustment put the belt on the motor spindle first and then the drum by turning the drum as the belt is eased onto it.
