In Topic: Amana belt drive washer squeal

I pulled on the belt and the unit turns both ways easily. I took off the belt but still hear the squeel when I run it with power. However the squeel is much shorter. Does that tell you anything?

 

Update - Just tried to run a load. All is well during rinse, etc. but spin still gets caught. I watched the motor/belt area and saw the belt move a couple of inches before the whole thing shut down.

The manual calls for using No. 03637P lubricant to help "keep moisture out of the hub area and prevent corrosion." Is there another name for that lubricant that would be more recognizable to a novice?

The belt numbers match, but I don't think I had the belt encircling the rear pump leg when I replaced it. I'll try that.

 

I'll let you know what happens. Thanks again.

The belt was changed because it was the original belt and was falling apart. Prompting to change the belt came from a burn smell.

 

I did not clean any previous shavings because there didn't seem to be many and I assumed, as a novice, that what I was seeing was normal for 15 years use. They are much thicker and more melted now than they were then.

 

Thanks for the manual. Still open for more thoughts from you experts.

 

Thanks
