    Top load Kitchenaid washer KAWS850LQ wont spin. Took off back, found broke belt. Best way to replace belt

    It won't spin without the belt. You need to place the belt from the motor to gearbox and there may be a tension pulley. Most are adjusted by loosening the motor and pulling it tight

    How do i replace the drive belt

    If you tip the washer back, you should be able to see the drive belt on the bottom of the machine. Chances are, the belt broke and didn't just fall off. I would suggest taking the old belt (which you'll find there on the floor) to an appliance store and have them match it up with a new one. Installation is fairly straight forward. It will go around the motor, transmission pulley, the water pump, and a tensioner (if equipped.) I hope this helps! :)

    Hey bud, i replaced my kenmore washer with a new coupler, but still it will not spin??

    inspect under the washer. look at springs for broken or one that may have come loose. inspect drive belt for broken or off pulleys. the drive belt is not turning pulleys, belt maybe broke or outa pulley grooves. or belt tension springs are broken or unhooked. good luck!!

    I have a Frigidaire washer that I need to install the v-belt. The old belt broke so I wasn't able to see how it threaded abound the, I believe, three pulleys. Also, what about the belt tension once...

    the belt goes around the the motor pulley then tension arm and then around the transmission pulley once you start to put it on the transmission pulley you can push it clockwise and this will help put the belt in possition

    Washer belt

    To replace the belt on your Amana washer, pull the unit forward then tilt the top of it back to about a 45 degree angle. Once you get the right angle, the unit will rest against the wall behind it instead of falling forward. Take your new belt (availble through local appliance parts stores or on line from the manufactures web site) and first put it in the track around the large pulley, then the track on the smaller pulley on the right. Lastly, the pulley on your left should be moveable. Move the final pulley so that you can get the belt over it. It will then move back to a tensioning position.
