Hello, we have a Washing Machine, Jetsystem, Turbodry 1000:

Customer Question

Hello, we have a Washing Machine, Jetsystem, Turbodry 1000: WDJ 1094, type P629 6284. Serial no. 63000051. It was passed down to me by family, and has been only lightly used. However, spinner drum stopped moving; belt had become slack (it fell off!). We have purchased new belt, but unable to access interior to fit new part. The casing defies removal, seems to 'wrap round'. Please advise as an expensive call-out is unaffordable. Many thanks in anticipation. J XXXXX.

Hiya,

Unplug the appliance.

Take the top off.

Pull the tub forward and look down to the pulley wheel on the rear.

Is the belt on the pulley?

.

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The belt fell off the pulley which is what started the exercise


I cannot reach in to replace the new belt without removing the rear wrap around cover

Hiya,

Unplug the appliance.

Take the top off.

.

Take the bolts along each upper edge out (note where they fit).

Take the bolts on the rear of the cabinet out.

Take the 2 hidden bolts on the side out.

(bottom centre each side, take out the blanking plug and you'll find the hidden bolts).

Unclip the plastic part at the top rear that carries the water and power in.

.

You can now pull the rear half of the casing off, giving you full access to refit the belt.

.

To fit the belt, put it around the motor and onto one side of the pulley.

Cable tie it to the pulley if you can (if not, you need to hold it in place).

Turn the pulley and the belt will stretch itself on.

.

Hope this helps

Get back to me if you need more help on this.

Thanks
