Hi, put the belt on the bottom pully and feed the rest up to the top pully, fit the belt on to half of the top pully, now open the door of the washer and very carefuly turn the drum while holding the belt tight to the pully, take care not to get your fingers trapped, make sure that the belt stays on both pullys by rotating the drum by hand a few times, if it all looks ok and central then the jobs a good un.

Prior to 1978 there was no prohibition on solidifying liquid PCB waste. The waste is subject to the regulations that apply to its condition at the time of disposal.
Return the program dial to a finished position. Power the machine off (Unplug it). Leave it 20 minutes and it SHOULD reset. Note, if there is water above the level of the door, it is a good idea to pull the machine out and tip it back slightly until the water is not against the door, then you can remove clothes and bail the tub out
Remove the lower rear panel of the washer and the top cover also.
Tilt the washer forward, and from the top fit the belt round the motor pulley first, and slowly feed it round the drum pulley, turning the drum pulley at the same time.
Watch your fingers as the belt will be very tight and difficult to get round the pulley.
but this is the best way to do it, trust me on this.
If it comes off, just start again., once you have the belt on, you can then easily align it up properly on the 2 pulleys.
Check level of machine as may be leaning slightly forward. Use front feet to adjust to level or slightly lifted at the front. This will compensate for any slight buckle in the plastics on the drawer compartment.
The motor is non adjustable on this washer.
Tilt washer forward, get someone to hold it steady, and put belt round motor pulley first, then slip belt on drum pulley, and slowly turn drum by hand, feeding the belt on as you turn drum, be careful not to trap fingers, as it is very tight, this is normal, as the belt is a stretch type, this is the reason the motor is non adjustable.
