Huebsch HWT120WM
serial 020301939

I am trying to figure out how to change the belt on this machine but I am not having any luck. I already purchased the new belt but not sure what I need to remove to swap belt. Do i replace this from side of the machine or the bottom? what item must i remove to slip the belt on? please anyone with step by step instructions I would really appreciate it.

hi thanks so much I just finished changing the belt. The machine does not agitate after the drum fills with water, I can hear the motor but nothing happens. It then spins and drains all the water as it should. How can i fix that it does not agitate now?

I just ran another cycle to double check I took clothes out and ran without anything in it. I peaked in the machine with the door slightly open, the agitator is moving very slowy not with very much power at all, with the thick blanket I put it it did not move at all. What can I do to fix so it agiates with power?

I was told the motor can still be bad if it spins, part of the motor works for agitation only so part of it could be bad, a broken coil , its a 2 phase motor. thats what was told at least would love anyone else who has an opinion on this Im sure Im not the only one that has had this happen

It's not the motor - somehow the belt is slipping when under load, I'm not familiar wit this brand of machine, but if it is anything like the domestic Amana's, there are several belts available that are all slightly different length so ya wanna make sure you have the right one. Also the belt tension spring could be weak - see if you can add tension to the belt while running and cause it to agitate

Yep - that's the design I remember (not good memories) - you need to watch and see if the belt is slipping, that spring (key#6) can become weak. Also check and see if you can turn the transmission pulley by hand

the manufacture says it cant be adjusted, the belt is still on. The manufacturer did say it was a 2 phase motor and said that even if it spins the motor could be still bad while it agitates. If anyone know how to adjust belt that would be great.

I took the old belt and a new belt to my local appliance parts place and they said the belt was the right one and it was fine. thanks in advance for those helping and those that have helped.

I called technical support at Huebsch today and they said the motor is a phase 2 and even if it spins like normal a portion of the motor is wounded up to work just for the agitation portion of the wash. How would I tell if the belt is slipping during the agitation? I will have to figure out how to test the motor and see if its putting out the right ohms, not really sure which wire leads I woud test

Watch it while agitating, if the motor pulley turns (motor running) and belt does not turn transmission pulley, it's slipping
