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 back.

Handwheel slipping loose on white jean machine 1810. Cleaned and oiled, changed needle. Do I need to change belt?

Probably the belt is slipping. It could need to be tightened, but if it is old and frayed, replacement may be the best answer.

The belts keep slipping off, brake foot pedal shudders and it just stops moving

I would guess that either the belt is streched or one of the springs on the pulleys is missing check all moveing pulleys for weak or missing springs

The belt on my FEW 12 HOTPOINT FIRST EDITION has slipped off, the belt has worn it's self in to the metal part behind it. Is it not repairable or has the belt streched

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

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!:-

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.

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

Washer wont spin

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.

Treadmill is slippng badly

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.

John deere 170 riding lawmower learching forwarn in 1st gear and slipping is clutch bad is there a clutch..maybe an adjustment?????

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.

Drum not moving around although sounds like something internally is moving around. Husband has taken back of and can't see anything obvious

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.
