Question about Bosch WFK 2401

1 Answer

Continuation of Drum not Spinning

Thanks for your suggestions. The belt was intact and all pullies looked good. I tried a spin cycle with the back off and it did not look like the motor attempted to turn. It moves by hand so there is no seisure issue that I can see. Where is the motor controller and is there an easy way to test it vs. the motor? Thanks

My Samsung front loader isn't spinning correctly. Do you think it's the belt or the pully

I assume you can see whether the drum is spinning at a constant speed. A slipping belt would be fairly obvious.

The banging noise suggests a worn pulley or a problem with the tensioner. Either way, you'll have to open up the machine and look. Wiggle the tensioner assembly and repair any slop or wear.

Remember to unplug the washer first.

Spinning drum

yes it does have belt can you turn drum in side by hand if yes and belt hasent broke must have come of pully belt should be tight on drum

Drum not spinning

garciajess74, more often than not, you're belt is probably broken. There could be several things going on though if it's not the belt. You would have to open the cabinet up to verify this. The problem could also be in the motor.
The first thing that I would do is gain access into the cabinet and take a look across the top of the drum to see if the belt is intact all of the way around. You can do this by spinning the drum manually by hand (if able) to see if it's intact.
If you find that the belt is not broken, then contact me at [email protected] and I can discuss with you the other possiblities to check.
The reason i'm going this route is to not put too much on you at one time and make you feel overwhelmed with the process.
I will be more than happy to assist you with this matter. Albeit probably not very normal, but it's what I love to do.

The drum does not turn.

there are two potential problems. firstis te belt to the drum drive pully from th moter. this is the easiest. take off the back panel an seeif the belt is intact. if so run through a cycle and see if the motor spins or triesto spin. if not this is most likely thesuspect. one plug three screws and about100 dollarsfixes te motor. hope this helps.

The drum does not spin, the blower works, the gas will fire up, belts look to be in tact but may be loose?

Most gas dryers have a tensioner on the drive belt under the drum a metal bar with a teflon pully that is spring loaded to tension the belt. Try spining the drum by hand if it spins freely the belt may have come off the tensioner or it may be streched. If it doesn't turn the drum rollers or bushing may be bad. Without a make and moddel # it's hard to say
Hope this helps

During the spin cycle basket vibrates very badly - very rough

I had a similar problem. During the final high spin and there was POW and the drum went funky eating into the plastic. I opened the back of the washer and look things over,.The belt for spinning was intact. I set the washer on a drain/spin option and watched from the front and back. While watching the pulley on the drum and could tell there was a hiccup as it went around. I pulled the pulley off and put on a new pulley. The new pulley was going in a perfect circle to spin the drum. It's not a hard repair, just need a little muscle to loosen the nut holding the pulley on and the same muscle to tighten the nut as much as possible. Hope this helps.

Dryer stopped spinning,timer still ticking,cannot get to restart.

Can you still hear the motor turning? If the motor is running but the drum is not then it is probably a broken belt or there may be something blocking the drum from spinning. The first thing to check is if the drum will turn by hand. If so, the next thing to check is if the belt has broken or slipped off. Although it is a bit cumbersome to replace, it is easy to diagnose. Unscrew the screws holding the back of the dryer on and pull the cover off. Look at the pulleys on the motor and see if the belt is intact. If those solutions don't do the trick, let me know and I will try to give you other options.

Loud thumping while spinning

my friend had this happen,apparrently a bearing was leaking then finally broke!

Maytag washing machine repair

The water pump may be going bad...Yes it probably is a bearing. Take the belt loose and try turning each pully until you find one that makes noise or is hard to turn. Pump and motor should both spin very easily with out noise.
