Washing Machine Belts
If you’re the sort of person who does a lot of laundry, you’ll appreciate how important keeping your washing machine in good working order is. People with busy families can have their machine running three times on any given day.
Unfortunately, even the best household appliances from the most esteemed manufacturers begin to suffer from the strains of such frequent use and many of the most commonly experienced faults involve damage to the belt. Washing machine belts spin the drum by passing on kinetic energy from the motor; however, they often become loose and can even snap after long periods of regular use.
Thankfully, just because your machine’s belt has snapped, it doesn’t mean the whole appliance is useless. Don’t buy a new one: a much more cost effective solution is to buy one of our replacement belts.
We stock many different belts for all sorts of major manufacturers, including Hotpoint, Whirlpool, Electrolux and Candy to name a few. Washing machine belts can snap if something gets caught between the inner and outer drum or if you overloaded the machine . Don’t worry though, we can supply you with a brand new one and deliver it to your door.
If your belt keeps getting thrown off the machine while in use, but hasn’t actually broken, it’s more than likely that the drum pulley is damaged or the bearings within the appliance have become worn. If you need assistance fixing one of these issues, you’re more than likely to find the part you need in our extensive range.
Our washing machine belts can be grouped into two broad categories: v-belts & poly-vee belts. V-belts are designed for older washing machines and are shaped in a ’V’, whereas modern day machines tend to use poly-vee belts, which have tracks or grooves that line up with the motor grooves and keep the belt in line when whizzing round.- Read less
