If your washing machine is not spinning correctly or at all, there may be a problem with the belt. An old washing machine belt can sometimes slip from its position due to overloading or even snap. In this video we show you how to remove and replace a washing machine belt.
IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS
Using a Phillips head screwdriver, carefully remove the panel from the back of the washing machine.
**The location and dimensions of the panel may vary according to your brand of washing machine, but they are usually fairly similar.**
You'll see the drum pulley, which is the large wheel on the back of the machine. If the belt needs to be removed from the pulley it can be levered and lifted off using the screwdriver.
To fit the new belt, first fit it around the motor pulley, which is near the bottom of the machine.
Then feed the belt around the drum pulley by rotating the pulley until the belt is in place all the way around.
The belt should now fit snugly and the pulley should spin freely.
Now the belt is in place, you can replace the back panel of the washing machine, making sure that it's securely screwed on.
