Check the pulley on the back of the basket to see if it is loose or the center key is worn out.

The belt was broken we replaced it now the drum vibrates when it spins. washer is a front loading washer Model GBVH5200J3WW

It sounds like the first belt broke due to overloading the drum. You may have caused it to become mis -aligned. Try running it with a few items and see if it still vibrates as a washer throws the clothing to the outside of a drum to spin.

Why dose my washer keep throwing belt

It can be due to problems faced by poor alignment of the motor, pulley and shaft. Also it can be due to worn belt or tight spindle that makes the belt slip over. check the free movement of the spindle and pulley , if not the assembly must be reset.

Belt keeps coming off drum

Hi, welcome to FixYa. If the belt continually slips off you may want to try tightening the belt by way of loosening the bolt on the motor bracket usually gold or brass in color and pull the motor down slightly but firm and refasten the bolt. Either that or the belt itself has become too worn/stretched and just needs to be replaced. Also insure the drive pulley is tight and not "wabbling" in a manner that would throw the belt off. In extreme cases it can also be caused by excessive load size, improper detergent/too much detergent or unstable footing. Hope that helps. Thanks for choosing FixYa. Good luck going forward. macmarkus :)

Take the center bolt out of the pulley remove the large washer that fits into the pulley flip it over and re-install it and the pulley will cease to wobble.

Makes clunking sounds & throws belt off pulley.

I think you have the answer. I suspect it will be the bearings that have seized up. Or possibly the spyder / drum axle broken
