How do I get to the belt moter on a sears Kenmore 500 cloths dryer the belt is off but not broken


The usual method of accessing the belt is to remove the entire fron panel (including door). It is usually easy to remove the panel by removing a couple of screws at the top and pulling up and out on the panel. The belt can be reached from the front. All dryer belts have a spring loaded tensioner on the belt. Check the tensioner as belts hardly ever come off unless the tensioner spring breaks.

How do you replace the drive belt in a kenmore dryer model 88042


Pull the fron off. Remove tub, should have a spring loaded idler pulley next to the motor. Make sure that it is not broke and spins freely. Also check tub support rolers on each side. They shoule spin freely. If ok, put belt around tub, install tu. Put belt around spring loaded pulley. May need a hand holding tub while you install pulley. Put front on. Make sure the fron of cover fits inside the tub seal. Good luck. email me with issues, [email protected],com.

The spin cycle is very slow. how do i tighten the belt?


there is no adjustment that can be made.either your motor windings are weak and causing the tub to spin slowly.or the transmission bearings are going out causeing extra tension and slowing it down.
you could have a bad belt as well over time they do get a little stretched and become loose on the pulleys.

Washer will kick in spin cycle, but with any type of heavy load will not spin , most times will spin if helped to get going by hand,will spin good empty or with light load.


Good day,
Without the model number or make, makes it pretty hard to come up with a solution, but if it's not a Whirlpool, Kitchenaid, Roper, or Kenmore direct drive top loader,
Remove the front panel and check the belt and tensioner.
Also, on occasion, water, and or possibly oil from an oil leak out of the bottom seal of the transmission can get on the belt and cause slippage.

P.S. On older Whirlpool and Kenmore washers, they did use a belt and you accessed it from a panel on the rear.
Belt might need adjusted, or in some cases the clutch simply wore out. Not a practical repair.

Front loader washer machine not rotating.


Fisrt, see if you can rotate it by hand, BOTH directions. It should have some resistance. If you can spin it and when you stop pushing it will turn a full turn, your drum belt is too loose. If the belt is good and tight, it will spin less than one half rotation, there is probably something blocking one of the wheels that the drum rides on.

How to replace the belt on a Samsung J845 frnt loader washing machine


If you stand in FRONT of the washer, leaning over the top, the drive wheel is underneath the main drive motor, on the RIGHT hand side.  Loop the belt over the drive motor wheel, then over the main pully, and it should be good to go!

Belt comes off


maybe not, is the belt condition good, if so check for any wobble on the pulley, you may have worn drum bearings, this will cause the large pulley to wobble and throw the belt when it spins, also you can check the belt for being tight, it should be fairly tight but not tight enough to cause it to snap, if loose there should be adjustment at the motor end on the motor housing, all of this is assuming this is not a brand new belt, if so have you bought the right one?

Kenmore h3 won't spin


Remove the pulley nut and pulley. The pulley should have a round hole with two flat sides that ride on a shaft. If the flat sides of this opening are damaged the pulley will not stay tight and will rattle. Try tightening everything down. If you can grab the pulley (like a steering wheel on a car) and turn it back and forth on the shaft, there shouldn't be any "play" in it. The whole drum should turn. If this is the case, replace the pulley and nut. I hope this helps you.
