Question about Tecnik TKL9290 Front Load Washer / Dryer
Sorry couldn't find a picture online, you could ask these guys; http://www.tecnik.net/aftersales.htm Usually these motors are mounted with a screw device somewhere on the side away from the hinge which can tension or slacken the belt. sometimes the whole motor is mounted on a sled, which can be moved to slacken the belt, probably by undoing 1 or two screws in the sled that slide in a track. if you have no luck with that then see if there is a small grub screw in the side of the pulley on the motor, if so you should be able to slide the pulley off to change a belt. Hope this helps :)

Tips for a great answer:
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16
If a belt must be replaced, the driven unit must be loosened and moved to its extreme loosest position, generally by moving it toward the center of the motor. After removing the old belt, check the pulleys for dirt or built-up material which could affect belt contact. Carefully install the new belt, remembering that it is new and unused - it may appear to be just a little too small to fit over the pulley flanges. Fit the belt over the largest pulley (usually the crankshaft pulley at the bottom center of the motor) first, then work on the smaller one(s). Gentle pressure in the direction of rotation is helpful. Some belts run around a third or idler pulley, which acts as an additional pivot in the belt's path. It may be possible to loosen the idler pulley as well as the main component, making your job much easier. Depending on which belt(s) you are changing, it may be necessary to loosen or remove other interfering belts to get at the one(s) you want.

When buying replacement belts, remember that the fit is critical according to the length of the belt, the width of the belt, the depth of the belt and the angle or profile of the V shape (always match up old belt with new belt if possible). The belt shape should exactly match the shape of the pulley; belts that are not an exact match can cause noise, slippage and premature failure.
After the new belt is installed, draw tension on it by moving the driven unit away from the motor and tighten its mounting bolts. This is sometimes a three- or four-handed job; you may find an assistant helpful. Make sure that all the bolts you loosened get retightened and that any other loosened belts also have the correct tension. A new belt can be expected to stretch a bit after installation so be prepared to re-adjust your new belt.
After installing a new belt, run the engine for about 5 minutes and then recheck the belt tension.
