First-DISCONNECT THE ELECTRIC

From the rear of the machine, take off the back. Remove the old belt any way you can. A tin snips works well. Next, put the new belt through the tensioner and then feed it onto the motor. Next, feed the belt around the main transmission pulley. It's the largest so it will be the easiest to get to stay in place. When it gets real tight, a little more than 1/2 way on, turn the basket to feed it on the rest of the way. If you got it through the tensioner in the right direction, it will be very tight. If it's loose, remove it and put it through the tensioner the other direction.

Instructions on how to install a belt on a kenmore top load washing machine model #: 110.24622300


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Next, see the following illustrated description of how to replace a belt on top load washers:

Belt is loose or needs replaced. on a 70 series kenmore washer machine


Can you provide the exact Make, Model and Kenmore model number? ..........

Kenmore model numbers use the format ###.######## with the first three digits of 110 for Whirlpool manufactured machines.........

The model number on top load washers is usually found by lifting the lid and looking above the tub.

The Fixya numbers are Stock Numbers.

Since basic top load direct drive, top load electronic and front load washers are very different, the actual Model Numbers are necessary to correctly diagnose the problem.


Slipping on direct drive washers is usually caused by a damaged / broken Motor Coupler or clutch.

If yours is a direct drive machine, see the following:

Why won't the Kenmore top loading washing machine agitate?


There are two types of Kenmore top loading washing machines. The direct drive models and the belt drive models. Direct drive models do not have a back access panel and the water inlet valve is located on the left side viewed from the rear while belt drive models do have back access panel and the water inlet valve is located on the right side viewed from the rear.

The most common problem causing a top loading machine not to agitate, particularly when the motor seems running, is a broken motor coupler for direct drive models and a broken or worn out drive belt for belt drive models.

The best way to exactly determine the cause is to access the drive motor. Open the back access panel for belt drive models and check the drive belt. Check the drive motor if it is running, humming or stuck.

Please indicate the model number of the washing machine if it is a direct drive model for the procedure in accessing drive motor.

Kenmore washer model 110.20872290. basket spins when MT but won't with a heavy load in it.


If this a belt drive from the motor, the belt may be worn or mis-adjusted. If it is a direct drive type, it may be a bad motor coupling. There is a complete instruction for replacing this coupling by going to: Replacing a Motor Coupling on Whirlpool Top Loader by jsrock516 on FixYa. Give him a pat on the back if it helps.

Removing Back Panel of Kenmore Washer Model 11020902990


if its less than 15 years old its a direct drive whirlpool, no belt, remove the cabinet, not the back panel. look up direct drive whirlpool washer cabinet removal on internet, and replace the coupler, most likely, if it drains.
