It should go around 2 wheels; one is the pulley of the motor, where there is a good groove. The other goes around the tub wheel which is big one. First fit to the motor wheel then fit to one side of this big wheel & turn the wheel to engage it gently. The belt should have a "give" of only half an inch, or it will be too loose or too tight.
If helped pl rate.........

u need to take the lid off and keep the small panel off now 2 ways u can do it 1)undue the botls on the motor just enough so u can move the motor now put the belt around the pulley wheel by placing your hand through the small panel once done put the belt around the motor wheel now last thing pull motor so it tightens the belt and tighten the bolts on the motor 2)place the belt around the wheel on the motor now with your other hand put the belt on 1 side of the big pulley wheel and hold it in place as u turn the pulley wheel it will slide on but with tension once on spin the pulley wheel and it will line up the belt

To refit belt, remove top cover and rear lower panel at bottom of washer.
Tilt the m/c towards you.,you may need assistance to hold m/c.
Put the belt round the motor pulley first, and then fit it on drum pulley, slowly turn the pulley feeding the belt round as you go, it will be very tight, so be careful not to trap fingers., just keep going until belt is on, there is no adjustment needed as belt is self tensioning.
The belt needs to sit in the middle of the pulley.
Plz rate my solution.

check if plug is loose on motor,in the general area where the belt was changed has anything been disturbed,cables i mean?,sounds like the motor brushes may be worn(this would cause motor to stop),they are situated 180degrees apart at one end of motor,they are easy to change,there is a spot at brushes to put a screwdriver in to remove brushes-hope this helps
