How to Replace a Belt For a Hoover Washing Machine


Hoover automatic washing machines range in size and capacity as well as amount of features and type of design. Each model shares a common type of mechanism to control the movement of interior parts, such as the wash tub. If the belt fails, stretches or breaks, the Hoover washing machine will cease to function correctly. Replace the damaged belt to restore the washing machine to proper working condition.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet to reduce the chance of shock.

  • Remove the screws securing the rear access panel to the washing machine cabinet.

  • Remove the rear access panel.

  • Pull the old belt off of the set of pulleys. Be sure to retrieve every piece of the belt if it is broken.

  • Wrap the new belt around the pulleys. Position the belt within the pulley belt grooves. The belt may slip off if not properly seated.

  • Replace the access panel on the back of the Hoover washing machine. Install the screws securing the panel to the cabinet.
