Loosen the tensioner (if equipped) and re-route the belt around the drive and tub pulleys.

If no tensioner - good old fashioned leverage using a screwdriver. Put it around the small pulley first - then the big.

How do i fix on a drive belt to a washing machine?


There is a removeable cover at bottom rear of washer..
Undo this, and you will see the motor and belt.
It will be very tight to put on, but this is normal as it is a stretch belt, that is why there is no adjustment on motor.
Hope this helps you .
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.
