Remove top cover and lower rear panel.
Tilt m/c towards you and put belt over motor pulley and slowly force belt round drum pulley turning the pulley at the same time.
Watch your fingers, it is very tight, but persevere!!!

Looking for a picture of the drive trane on an LHA6900wo. having trouble trying to determine how to tention the belt or replace it. The blet is slipping so not sure if it is streteched to the point of not...

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
much to me. It's been about 55 years since I had
experience with front load washers. However I can
suggest you go to where
they have very good trouble shooting and repair
information on front loaders. I think you'll find what
you need there. Good luck with it.

The drum drive pully is loose. How tight should

The blet should have 1/4" deflection (approximately) over the longest length.

LG washer does not spin. Then says

This could be several things and cannot succesfully be diagnosed without intervention and testing. Call a service tech to look at it. It could be a blet broken, diesengaed or even a slenoid switch

Grease Leak

Unfortunately not. In addition to replqacing the blet, the transmission must be replaced. It is the only item in your washing machine that contains gear oil. It's a tough job for the do-it-yourselfer...If I can help further, I am here.

How do you fit a drive blet

Do you mean how you get the right size or get it on? To get it on, first put the belt around the pulley of the main shaft and then fit it around other pulleys and end with the pulley around the motor, to get it around the last pulley, get as much of the belt into the pulley as you can and then spin the pulley and hold onto the belt and spin it so the belt will continue feeding into the pulley. If I didn't understand your question, please let me know or if you have questions with my directions, then please post your model and make and a more descriptive question of this problem

good luck
