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.

I need to replace the belt on my Amana ALW480DAW. The other one burnt up and broke. I have the new one. Do you have a diagram I could view to help me install the new one?


I used the following links:

Diagram with replacement belt doesn't seem to match old manual


I haven't worked on a belt drive but here is the Sears parts site for your washer with diagrams of the console, drive system etc. You may get a better idea of how to replace the belt from these.

Here also is the Whirlpool / Amana installation and maintenance document for Amana belt drive washers. It may look similar to yours.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/56310258b0952a4e8525729c0056d75b/$FILE/Amana_Searcy_TL_Washer.pdf

The other thing I'd check is Whirlpools list of documentation for their laundry products. Check some of the washers that they make for one that looks like yours and you should get a better idea.

Amana Top Load Washer model# LW3502W Washer leaks water somewhere between wash & rinse cycle best I can tell...drain hose checks out fine. At beginning of wash cycle the first minute or two of agitation...


Sounds like the water seal is damaged and the leaking water has damaged the top bearing which is just below the water seal. You will need to have the hub & seal kit replaced.
