Hello, I have a 20yr old+ washer, Whirlpool serial #403883, 220volt machine, I have it in Greece so it's not in front of me, do these #'s make sense, I think I wrote them done correctly when I was there, it runs fine, should I replace the belts anyway? It gets used for only 1 month a yr, anything else I should think about replacing? Could you tell me what I need to order?
Thank you much
Answer John, Yes, you probably would want to have a set of belts 12112425 and rollers 205000 handy. You also may want to consider a water inlet/fill valve 205613, these are the most likely components to have on hand. But, We need to know if the washer is a 120 volt 60 hz washer that has had a "step up" 220volt 50 hz. transformer, or is the washer a 220 Volt 50 hz export machine, If it is an export model, the parts will be different. Thanks
How can I get a repair manual for this model washer? I am replacing the belts.
Answer Hello Tom. The belts are easy to replace on this model. Just lean the washer back and roll the old belts off the pulleys and then roll the new belts 12112425 onto the pulleys. You will need to use the old one to find the correct location for the different sized belts. Hope this helps.
What are the sizes on the belt 211124 & belt 211125?
Answer Hello Misti! The pump belt 211124 (211124) is 40 1/2" and the drive belt 211125 (211125) is 41 1/2". Thanks!
My machine is almost 30 years old, will the AP4011179 belts fit?
Answer Hello Pete! Yes, the pump and drive belt kit part number 12112425 will fit on your LA710 model. Thanks!
Hi. I've noticed that my washer is filling, but the agitator won't agitate & it makes a brief squeal when it starts. My laundry room was filled with smoke - that's what got my attention to begin with. It spins the water out just fine, though. Is this likely to be a belt, or something more serious, like the transmission? Thanks for your help!
Answer Chris, You're going to need a new set of belts, but I'm pretty sure theres more to it than that. Are you sure the washer spins and drains ? Some quick checks to make : Open the lid and check for something stuck between the tub cover and spin basket. Slide the washer away from the wall a few inches, remove the front panel(two phillips head screws), raise and prop up the front of the washer and remove both belts. Check the belts for wear and burn spots, check that the motor assembly moves back and forth freely. Reach under the washer and turn the transmission pulley in both directions, Clockwise is the spin and it should take some strength to turn the pulley, counterclockwise is the agitate mode and should be easier to turn. If the pulley won't turn counterclockwise you'd have a bad transmission, if the pulley won't turn , or is extremely hard to turn in the clockwise direction, you'd have a seizee tub bearing assembly. Good Luck and Thanks
Not washing my clothes to it's potential. Agitator barely moves. Am able to stop the agitation with my hands. Could be drive belt, but want to be sure it's not something else. Thank you.
Answer Hello Joe. Check and see if the belts are bad on the unit, and also the motor moves freely on the plate and there is 2 spring on the motor. If so, you will need to replace the belts 12112425. Hope this helps.
