Question about Washing Machines
I need help on installing a belt on my Amana Washer LW3502W i need a diagram of how to get the new belt on. Can you help please?
Take off front of machine- 2 screws bottom sides. You need to take the bolts out of the motor brackets (4) and it would help if you drained all of the water out of the water pump so you can take the hoses off. Release the spring pressure on the idler pulley and unclip the motor plug on the side of the motor near the top. Now you should be able to pull the motor out and gain access to the three torx screws on the bottom of the pump. Make a note of how the pump sits on the bottom of the motor and how the belt is routed through the legs of the pump and around the pulleys. Reverse the procedure and reassemble. Don't forget to re-apply the spring pressure to the idler pulley. The motor drive pulley should be clean, shiny, and smooth. If not the belt won't slip like it should and will burn up when the washer spins. It has to slip untill all of the water is out of the tub before it spins up to full speed. Found this- and I'm gonna try it.

To be honest it takes an engineer long enough to fit a belt, they use a speacial tool. i would personally let an engineer fit it. It you already have the belt then they will only charge you for the fitting.
