How do you remove the drive belt from the 2 pulleys it runs on? I ask this because I need to replace the clutch, but I can't get to that until the belt is off.
To remove belt you will first unplug unit and take front panel off unit. Loosen the four 3/8" nuts on the bottom of the motor and move motor towards the center to remove belt. Rotate the transmission to give motor clearance. Rotate motor back and pull out. Reverse procedure to install.
My washer doesn't spin all the water out of the clothes. I tightened the belt and it worked for a while but now it is doing the same and the belt seems to be tight enough.
Answer Tony, Based on your post, yes the clutch WH5X256 and belt WH1X2026 are the likely issue. But make sure the drain pump is removing all the water in the tub, and there are no small articles stuck between the tubs, first.
My washer does not spin. The motor looks running. But clutch assembly and motor does not strongly attached. The clutch assembly so loosely connected to the motor. Is it OK?
Answer Joon, The clutch assembly could seem loose, especially in a static, non run situation, but it should not "wobble" on the motor shaft. The clutch pads engage the the cluch housing, which turns the belt, based on the motor rpm, You could have a "slipping" clutch WH5X256 and or a worn belt WH1X2026 which could be the issue with a poor or no spin situation in your washer.
On the clip and clutch assy pn ap2045377, where does the clip go?
Answer Hello Joe. The clip in the assembly WH5X256 attaches to the bottom of the motor shaft. Hope this helps.
My washer washes clothes fine spins out fine just make a banging noise during agitation. agitates one way bangs agitates the other way bangs and so forth. A connection to the tub maybe? Any info would be greatly appreciated
Answer Tony, It could be a loose or deteriorated hub or hub nut,or split ring under the hub. but it's most likely a bad transmission WH45X10027 WH2X1193 and WH02X10265. You'll need to remove the front panel and raise the top, then remove the tub cover and spin basket to access these parts, and a special wrench TJ90TB123A. You would also want to check the agitator coupling when you remove the agitator, but that doesn't normally make a "bang" noise. Good Luck and Thanks
