Indesit WA105 - drum is loose and fails to spin

The drum will not spin, the motor and belt are fine, it seems as though the drum has deattached itself from the spindle, if I turn the drum by hand its very loose and the drivewheel at the rear of the machine does not turn. Is this fixable?

    The spider assembly attached to the inner drum is broken into many pieces, doesnt look like it can be fixed? its riveted to the inner drum.

    Many thanks Crytech for your reply, the parts are around £55 including the spider bolt kit(which is required as the original is riveted), but I reckon if I take out the drive spindle then I'll probably need to replace the bearings/seals as well, which will be around another £15 at least, so total cost is at least £70 + postage, not to mention a few hours to do it all, so guess I'll just buy a new machine (equivalent machine is £200 or less).

    Thanks Again Crytech

Hi Jezzer69 It is repairable but will take about 3 -4 hours (if you know what your doing) and the parts will cost about 65% of what a new machine will cost. You need to weigh up how old the machine is and or if its "beyond economical repair" Regards

Stopped in mid-cycle. drum will not turn even by hand, unloaded. Plastic/metal debris in filter.


Hi,

If you have a front load washer, sounds like you do, by your description. If you can't turn the drum by hand and have foreign object within the pump filter, its time to replace the washer. It sounds like your spindle has cracked and the tub will no longer be suspended from the rear. Metal from the spindle and plastic from the basket (spin drum). Sorry for the bad news but its cheaper to replace the washer than fix the damage. Good Luck

I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gere_bf68e6055dd61249

Instructions on how to replace belt on WF000 1000 spin washing machine


Changing the belt is easy. The reason for changing the belt is the question. If the belt keeps coming off on an aquaruis then it's usually a sign the bearings in the drum are shot. These things hardly ever need a new belt. That aside, I hope you have good reason to change the belt and there is the (Easy) way to do it.

UNPLUG FROM THE POWER SOURCE!!

Take the lid off. On this model I think you will fins a screw, hidden behind a little plastic prise-off cover, on either side of the lid about 2 inches back from the front of the machine.

Unscrew (Torque screws!!! but you MAY get away with a flat screwdriver that fits across the points of the star holes).

With the heel of your hand, strike the top front edge of the lid to make it slip baccwards about a half inch, this releases the clips that hold the back of the lid in place.

At the rear of the machine, at the bottom, there is an oval pannel about a foot wide and six inches deep held on by about 5 or 6 screws. Unscrew and remove the pannel. You can now see the drive spindle on the end of the motor.
Drop the new belt in from the top and hook over the drive spindle (you can see the position the old one was in on the slotted spindle because that portion of the spindle will be cleaner and shinier than the rest.
Now, holding part of the belt, guide it onto the main drum drive wheel (that huge wheel about 2 feet wide.
By turning the drum by hand slowly, you will be able to guide the belt onto the large wheel as you rotate the drum.

Tips:
Having someone spin the drum by opening the door and turning it for you slowly may help

ALWAYS start with the belt on the motor spindle and guide onto the drum wheel, not the other way. You will never get it on if you start with it on the big wheel.

Unless you know the reason for swapping the belt, start worrying.... Occasionally these belts snap. Usually there is an underlying cause if they just "slip off"

Beko Tumble Dryier - Model DRVS 73 W the Belt 9PHW 1967 has broken. Is there a step by step guide on how to fit the replacement belt.


Very easy on all tumble dryers.

UNPLUG FROM POWER FIRST!

This is simply a case of:
Take the top off the machine (Usually a couple of screws holding the lid on at the back).
Or - Rempove the inspection panel from the back
Drop the new belt over the drive motor spindle
On some machines you may need to thread the belt around a tensioning wheel
Now take the belt and place it on the side main wheel that drives the drum and simply spin the drum wheel with your hand, guiding the new belt into place as you spin the wheel.
It should simply stretch a little and work its way onto the wheel as it is hand turned.

Note, once it is on, take a look at the drive motor and make sure that the belt is sitting in the same place as the old one. Most of these motors have a slotted spindle and you can see from the clean and shiny surface where on the spindle the belt used to sit. If it is a little out of place, once again just take hold of the belt and pull it toward you or push it away as you spin the main drum wheel in order to move it into the correct slot.

How to replace the belt on a whirlpool duet washer


To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and remove the rear panel.

2. Place the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the drive motor pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer won't spin, motor sounds like its working, belt is fine...what do I check or do?


The belt may look fine, but if the motor is spinning, then the belt isn't transferring the motion to the drum.

First, make sure you can turn the drum by hand. Turn off the power. Reach inside the drum, grab the opposite sides and turn. If it moves more than a few inches, then it isn't the drum that's stuck. Possibly the belt tensioner has slackened and needs to be adjusted.
