Open Question

Electrolux EW 1000 1 Aqualux 1000

I overloaded the machine last night, it broke the belt and in the process ripped out 2 wires from the back. I have a grey one which I can see is bust just in the loom so can fix that end but don't know which terminal it should be on and I have an orange one totally ripped out. Don't know where either ends of that wire goes. Any clues? Do you have a wiring diagram I can access? Thanks

check the drain filter is clear / pumping efficiency good. possible blockage in side chamber on righthand side. fan motor assy on top of chamber may be faulty. a condensing water valve could be faulty its the dual cold valve that the cold hose connects to without it you just get a steam and hot clothes.

Why broke the belt many time what wrong

which belt,?
the accessory belt? I must guess.
accessory belts fail for 3 reasons.
1: it is at end of life, say over 100k miles.
2: the last mech, used too much tension on it. (lazy or not ASE trained)
3: the devices the belt turns has seized bearings , overloading said belt.

there is a 4th possible but that the last mech, put it back together
wrong, and the alignment is way off.
in such a way that the pulleys do not align in a parallel plane.

easy huh?

Why does my serpentine belt keep breaking?

It sounds to me like one of the belt-driven accessories is stopping. Remove the belt and turn all of the accessory pulleys by hand, both slowly and quickly, in both directions. Any that does not turn smoothly, quietly and easily is suspect and that accessory should either be replaced entirely or have its bearings replaced (if practical). In my experience, the most common accessory to cause this problem is the power steering pump, but it could be any of them.

I need advice on how to change the drum bearings on a Prima LPR 720 washer dryer. so far i have all the outer casing and the belt off

Hi John, I saw you post on here and wonder if you still have your washing machine? I also have Prima Washer Dryer LPR720 with a problem. The belt has broken and has ripped off 2 x Orange wires and 2 x Grey wires. Do you happen to know where these should go? I would be extremely grateful for you help.

Belt broke, looks burnt

You probably burned it up on the very last use. It stretched from regular overloading of the machine until one day it sawed itself in half.

Get a new belt and lighten your large loads a bit.

Be sure to check the motor and transmission mounts for any excessive wear or freeplay. This would also cause belt damaging slack.

good luck and be careful.

The drive belt light is flashing on the dash and the engine will not come up to speed on my 2005 750 brute force kawasaki how can i reset the computer

This belt light is a feature put on by kawasaki for safety. It'll continue to come on after it get so many kilometers on it. The light has to be reset in order to get it off. Now if your mechanically inclined i'll explain to you how to get that light to go off.

First thing you have to do is reach down under the right side of the bike and in under the side cover you'll find two black plugin and two grey pluggins. Unplug those two and then plug a black and grey together and then the other black and grey together. Then down on the belt box you'll find a square black metal box with two wires coming from it. Unplug that ****** also. Once you have this all done now turn the ignition key to the on position and wait for about 7 to 10 seconds and the computer will reset itself. After you do that, turn the ignition key off and then unplug the two black/grey connectors and plug them back together, black to black, grey to grey. Then plug the connector from the black metal box on the belt cover back in. After you have this done. Turn the key on and let it go thru it's cycle. When you are done the belt light should be off.

Now if after you have done all this, and the belt light remains on and you still have no power, then you have a switch problem in the belt box. You can either remove the belt box and check the switch inside of it to see if the switch has been tripped to off. If it has, then in all probablity you need to install a new belt and reset the switch. Personally, i'd cut the two wires coming out of that metal box i previously told you about and join then together on the bikes wiring harness side. Leave the two wires from the black metal box like they are. You don't have any warranty on that part of the bike anyhow, so why bother have that switch continue to cause you problems. In order to get the belt light to off after you cut those two wires is you'll have to go thru the process i explained to you before. Only this time at the end instead of plugging the switch wires back together, just twist the two wires on the harness side together,in theory all you are doing is plugging that plug together, only your disconnecting that switch and never again should it bother you. However, after a few 100 kilometers you may have to do all i explained to you over again, only the next time you'll have to untwist the two wires along with the two black and grey wires and then go thru the process again. After the process is done, replug black to black, grey to grey, and then twist the two wires back together, turn the key on again and let it reset itself. Again your belt light should be gone out.

Good luck

Bosch Washing machine will not spin

Are you able to see the belt? Maybe it broke. If the drum is not spinning than sometime broke that would make the drum spin. If you machine is a direct drive then there is a problem with the drive shaft.

Own a Maytag Washing Machine Model No. LAT9416AAE I overloaded with a extra large comforter. I started the cylce and went upstairs to my room leaving it unattended. My parents were down stairs With it, and...

there is a thermal overload protector in the motor. After the motor cools it should restart. There is an off balance switch that might have been tripped when pulling out the comforter or when bailing out the water. As for the belts, tip the machine back and you will see the belts underneath the washer. Very easy to change and you'll see what I mean when you see the belts. That should solve your problem. AND DON'T OVERLOAD THE WASHER AGAIN.
