Amana washer NAV2330AWW, belt slipping.

07 September 2011 - 02:18 PM

I have an Amana washer NAV2330AWW

It had the dreaded leaking tub seal, I replaced that successfully with the tub seal/bearing assembly from your online store,yes, it was a PITA. Had to make my own bearing puller. I'm trying to put the whole thing out of my memory, but It no longer leaks, not a drop.

Problem: The washer agitates fine but when it comes to the spin cycle the belt is slipping and getting hot. I can get the empty tub to spin, but when the tub is even partially full it spins, but too slowly to drain the water. When I manually add tension to the idler pulley it seems to help the belt catch. The transmission, motor, and pulley all turn freely.

I then ordered a new belt, new idler pulley and a new tension spring and installed them, the belt is on correctly, I still have the same exact issue, spinning motor pulley, but belt is slipping badly, sometimes it will catch other times, not so much.

I'm beyond frustrated, after replacing the hub seal and bearing after hours in labor and quite a bit of cash, I'm about to give up. I feel like I ALMOST have it!

I did notice when I replaced the idler pulley the new one worked about the same as the old one. There doesn’t seem to be any real bearings anywhere, just a solid shaft that attaches to the arm and a metal sleeve inside the pulley, I did clean the shaft and put a drop of light oil on it.

What's the deal? I'm about to give up and send back the parts, after all this work.
