    Default Speed Queen belt

    Model - AWN412SP111TW01

    How much slack should be in the belt on this machine? This one seems awful loose. Complaint was no spin sometimes with large loads. There is belt debris indicating a worn belt for whatever reason. I intend to remove the belt to measure it (30 1/4" ?) and check the pump for any obstruction. There does not seem to be any adjustment on it, no sliders or anything, so I assume the tension/idler pulley comes into play here?

    The idler pulley and spring keep tension on the belt.

    It will appear loose and tighten itself as needed.

    Yeah I thought it worked like a Maytag as far as tightening. I guess the thing for me to do is measure the belt to see if it is a little too long. Along with checking the pump and tension pulley and spring.

    Seems like a lot of hassle to get a belt off....for a lazy person.

    Took another look at this machine yesterday before I almost took it to the curb.
    Anyway, the pulley on the motor shaft looks like it is slipping barely moving the tub/basket in spin cycle. Is this pulley a press fit? Got a set screw? I'm betting it requires another motor assembly? (My luck)

    Only comes with the motor.

    I have not seen a set screw or pin...so it looks to be pressed on.

    Kinda sneaky of 'em. Hmm, might do some experimenting with this thing.

    What sixe torx driver does it take to get the pump off?

    Might try a heat sink and a little brazing on this thing. Depending to what the pulley is made of. Then take it to the scrap yard.

    Can't seem to reach the screws. That or someone has changed them.

    You have the motor and pump off? Not much room to try with that in place between the pump and base.
