REMOVE THE FOUR BOLTS HOLDING ON THE MOTOR MOUNT TO THE MILK STOOL. DISCONNECT THE DRAIN HOSES, UNPLUG THE WIRING HARNESS AND THEN ROLL THE BELT OFF THE MAIN PULLEY OF THE TRANSMISSION. FLIP MOTOR OVER AND REMOVE THE DRAIN PUMP, NOTING HOW THE BELT WAS THREADED THROUGH THE PUMP MOUNTS.

How do you replace the belt on amana washer lw8203w2


To replace the belt, on the very bottom of the front you will see 2 screws. Remove them and the bottom cover will come off. You can then replace the belt.

Check the belt to see if it just broke or if have a worn spot on it. If it appears like it wore in one spot then you have another problem that needs to be addressed.

Need to replace the main belt on the bottom of the washer. The belt goes around the drive pulley directly below the electric motor which is accessible from the front bottom access panel. The belt goes...


Unplug the motor wiring, remove the bolts holding the motor bracket (4 I think) remove the hoses from the pump and lift the motor and pump out. Remove the 3 screws on the pump and separate from the motor. Put the belt on the pulley and replace the pump. Slide the motor and pump back in with the belt attached, but don't put the 4 bolts on until you put the belt over the tub pulley. Then put them in and plug the wiring back onto the motor. That should do it!

Belt amana washer replace mod lw6501w2


I have a similar amana top load washer and just changed the belt. Here are the steps I used to change the belt:
1) Unplug the washer
2) Slide the washer away from the wall about 12"
3) Remove two screws from the bottom of the front panel, slide the front panel down (there are 2 metal tabs that slide into slots on the top of the front panel - observe how they slide into/out of the slots). Set the panel aside.
4) Remove the electrical connector (upper left of motor). Press down on the top of the plastic connector - this will undo the catch hook holding the connection in place). Observe how the belt is routed before proceeding.
5) Remove 4 bolts holding the motor in place. You can remove the motor - even with the water pump and hoses in place - they will flex.
6) Remove the water pump from the motor. There are 3 torx - head screws to remove. Note: You will need a star shaped (torx) head driver (Looks like a screwdriver but with a "star" head on it. The one I used measured just under 3/16 in diameter.
7) carefully remove the water pump. - remove the old belt from main pulley under washer drum and also from the water pump. Insert the new belt - be sure to put the tension pulley on the outside of the belt.
8) Reinstall the water pump to the motor. Reinstall the motor. Route the belt correctly in the water pump body area first - them slide the belt around the left side of the main drum pulley - rotate the pulley counter-clockwise and the pulley will tug the belt onto the pulley. Once in place - check bolts and belt - then reattach the electrical connector (remember to press the plastic lever on top of the plastic connector before sliding it in place). Reattach front panel - slide the top of the panel onto the metal tabs - then attach screws at the bottom.

Amana ALW480DAW washer


Remove the front panel by loosening the two screws that hold it in place. Unhook the spring that puts tension on the tension pulley. Remove old/worn belt and replace with new belt. Very important that you use the correct size belt or the motor may be damaged and remember to hook the spring back for the tension pulley. The new belt has to go around the inside of the tension pulley.
