ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley or a faulty motor.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

unsure of your model here, but generally a drum belt change will require loosening the motor supports, putting the new belt on, then tightening the motor to correct belt tension.

My console comes on. I am able to change speed and incline but my walking belt does not move. Could it be the motor has gone bad?


1) Lube the deck belt, maybe you have a worn deck belt, use 100% silicones or wax, check your instr. manual
2) Lube the rollers bearing with wd-40 very well
3) Test the drive belt motor, for cracking or worn belt

Bosch wfk 2401 drive belt slipping


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If you are certain that it is a belt problem and not a motor one, you need to purchase a replacement belt (the same applies if it IS a motor problem- change the belt at the same time!)
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!

If it turns out to be the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had. New motors are not cheap, though. Ours for a Bosch cost GBP250- but it's your choice!


If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

WASHER MOTOR NOT WORKING ON LOAD.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It does sound as if the motor requires replacement unless it's the belt slipping.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!
If it is the motor it might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor (and the belt at the same time) on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
It's your choice of course!
Good luck,

With just one rug in my Whirlpool duet sport wfw8500 will not go too high spin .


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It could be that the belt is slipping BUT more likely that the motor is malfunctioning on fast speed- not an unusual occurrence, especially if the washer has been well used over a period . So- belt guidance first with a comment about motor at the bottom.

If it turns out to be the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although there is nothing wrong in choosing that considerably less expensive option! Experience of others, however, is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished.
I changed our 19+ year-old Bosch motor a couple of months ago at a cost of GBP250- including a new belt of course.

Hope these help.
Good luck,

It washes fine but when it it time to do the final spin it sounds funny and wont spin out


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This sounds very much like either the belt is slipping or the motor is malfunctioning. Following first are my standard machine guidance notes for a belt change, then notes for a motor change (which we hope is not required!)

Changing a timing belt on a 2001 Honda Accord


All of your fan belts needs to be taken off because the timing belt is located beneath the crankshaft pulley. There is a possibility that you may need to lift the motor off its motor mounts to gain access to the timing belt. Remember, the timing belt can't be seen from the outside.

Eureka 5197 self propelled bagless upright


Did you check the brush roll when you changed the belt? The smell of rubber would inducate a belt slipping. So if the brush roll (part #61308-2)isn't turning, the belt would get hot and would be slipping. If the motor sounds real loud, then you could have a bad motor(part #60775-4).
