Re: How do you change the belt if it is slipping?
GN. This model does not have a belt, it's a direct drive washer. It could be a couple of things. Is this happening during spin? If so you may have a worn drive block or something as simple as something between the tub and basket. The clutch and brake assy. could be failing. It's hard telling without being there. I will attach a couple of pictures so you can get and ideal...Catriver..post back.

Belt is probably stretched. You will need to 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 if your's 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!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
You may have some small piece of clothing stuck in the water pump. Pull clothes out, empty water out, turn over and remove pump and check for obstructions. If nothing in there see if it is frozen from moving, if not belt may be loose by being streched. Replace belt if needed.
There should be an allen head bolt on each side at the rear of the treadmill going throughthe rear cover into the tail [rear] roller. Turn each one 1/4 turn at a time equally untill slipping is stopped. If belt tracks more to one side tighten slightly more on that side.
This is a classic symptom of a slipping belt. It lurches because belts do not wear evenly - they develop 'tight' spots - like the chan of a single cylinder motorcycle.
The belt will be slippng for one of two reasons - either it is simply worn beyond it's service life, or the 'clutch' - which is simply a spring-loaded jockey wheel on the belt which keeps it tight - is hanging up somewhere and not tensionng the belt properly.
Take the back off put washing machine on spin cycle making sure not to touch anything so you don't get shocked and look at the motor maybe the belt is loose or broken if it is loose just tighten via the spring adjustment or if is old washing machine belt may have streched and needs replaceing if motor don't move maybe needs rewinding and is cheaper to buy new washer.
You dont stated the brand and model of your machine so all I can say is yes change the belt allways when this hapend to one of my client I change the belt becouse the belt is waring off and loose its trech condition loosing flexibility and slipping out wen ist run at high velocity....good luck and rate me....
