Customer Question

Hi I have an NEC NW652 machine which has sat in storage for 2 years, it worked straight away but after a couple of washes the agitator requires a push to start and the spin doesn't start, no error message, the drive belt is a bit loose any thoughts, regards Brian
JA: How old is the appliance? Have you gotten error messages before?
Customer: the machine is 10 years old and no error messages have come up before
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I should be able too, electrical/electronic experience since 1980
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: that's all, it appears to be a simple arrangement

You should replace the drive belt, since it has probably stretched a bit, while left in storage.
