Install belt on Amana top load washing machine


Use the correct sized belt!!

Loosen the Motor mounting Bolts. ( Do not take it off ) Now the motor assembly can be moved towards the opposite large pulley.

Replace the belt in this position and slide the motor to it's original position. You adjust it in such away so that, the belt is not too tight or loose!

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.

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.
