Removed face of control panel, removed cover on back of machine that allows access to water level hose. Disconnected hot and cold water supply. Pulled old water level hose off tub. Had to use screw type hose clamps to install as diameter of hose different from original. Removed hoses from water inlet valve. Easily installed new valve. Tilted machine on it's face to access belts. Took five minutes to replace.
Since my missus keeps her appliances like new, it behoves us to buy something of good quality when new. We did that. Now, after almost 20 years, the washer complained it needed new belts, which I complied. Tilted it up against the wall after pulling power cord. Removed both belts and replaced. Adjusted pump belt by loosening pump and then retightening. This is easy to get to by removing front (removing 2 philips screws). Piece of cake.
Disconnected the hoses , power cord, and the drain hose. Tipped the washer on it's front panel and removed the old belt and spun the new one on. Tested for tightness as per the instructions and sat the washer up and hooked everything up. Total time---5-10 minutes. Local appliance dealer insisted this wasn't the belt we needed. Thanks to your website we easily selected the right one. Thanks.
Unplugged the power chord, disconnect the water lines and the drainage hose connected to the elbow. Created and cleaned a space to work, opened the top cover and the front panel to be able access to the elbow area to replace it with a new part, placed back the top cover and front panel. Installing the new drive belt at the bottom was surprisingly easy.
I viewed and followed the PartSelect Instruction Video. My only problem was reattaching the door after the hinges fell off.Everything fell into place as the video indicated. After I regrouped I was able to put the hinges back and then I was able to reattach the side panel very easily as the vedio indicated. Thanks for everything.
After looking up the problem on the PartSelect website, which indicated the problem could be with the tumbler (drum) belt, I watched the instructional video, which was very helpful, as the dryer in the video was exactly the same as mine. After removing the power cord from the wall and separating the exhaust vent pipes from the dryer, I followed the instructions for removing the front panel, the front bulkhead, the drum and the old belt, which was worn and somewhat stretched. I then followed the instructions for installing the new belt, but I found it was easier for me to remove the back access panel in order to complete the installation of the belt around the drive pulley and tension pulley wheels as I wanted to see what I was doing as opposed to just "feeling" the belt to ensure a proper installation (e.g., new belt not twisted). Once I removed the drum, and before I put in the new belt, I also took the opportunity to use my shop vacuum (and you really need a shop vac for its power)to remove 25 years of rubber dust from the old belt, house dust, and packed lint from inside the exhaust fan, cabinet, and the vent pipes (and a dead field mouse that had crawled into the dryer through the outside vent pipe and had gotten trapped in the exhaust fan). I also examined the heater tubes to insure no lint was inside that and spun the fan blades by hand to make sure the motor shaft was not worn. Once I was satisfied that the installation of the belt was done properly, I put the drum back on, reinstalled the front bulkhead (checking to make sure the felt gaskets were in place, as recommended in the video) and reattached the front panel. I also took the opportunity to touch up the accumulated minor nicks and scratches ion the cabinet with refrigerator enamel. Now that the new belt is on, the dryer no longer vibrates, and with the dust, lint and mouse removed, dryer is operating much more efficiently. Remember to re-balance the dryer using a carpenter's level to minimize any latent vibration. Note that the actual removal and replacement of the belt took me about 30 minutes, and the rest of the cleaning, reattaching of the vent pipes, and balancing, etc. took about two hours.
Tilted washer on its side.Took off old pulley- Allen wrench. Slipped on new pulley and replaced both the drive belt and pump belt. Works like new again- maybe for another 29 years!!! ???
My 13yr old son and I fixed the washer in about 5 minutes. It was very simple and easy to repair considering I had never done it before.
Frist take off front of the washer, removed old belts and then put on the new. very easy.
put on the new belt. it also smelled like smoke when we first ran. upon further inspection, saw that the drum was not turning easily. felt around the top inside edge of the drum, found the real problem- there was a sock jammed on the top edge between the drum and rim. removing the sock was easy, and then everything worked great!
our neighbor had it done in no time!!!...
Being a single Mom with no mechanical background, it went very well. I followed the instructions which were very clear. I did it myself!
Disconected water lines. Drain line and electric plug. Laid washer on its front side, found badly worn pump belt. Rolled off of pulley,ordered new one. Replaced with new belt. No covers to take off everything easy to get at. Problem solved. /
