Motor Springs & Slides

The springs & slides are use to adjust the belt tension. There are 2 plates used to mount the motor. The motor gets bolted to the top plate and the 4 slides get install on the plate. The bottom plate has 2 tracks that the slides glide on them. The 2 springs will adjust the plates to give the belts the proper tension.

When the belts are replaced, the tracks in the motor mounting plates should be cleaned and properly grease. This way the slides could glide easily to adjust the belts.

Sometimes by just cleaning the motor mounting plates, greasing them and adjusting the belts you could used worn out belts and the washer works ok.
