Hello Stephannie - Based on what you are describing, more than likely the belt is not aligned properly on the pulley or on the motor shaft. If possible, try lining the belt up with any pre existing marks or grooves from the original belt. If it proves to be ineffective, I would recommend reaching out to a qualified technician to proceed further with the repair(s) or installation of the belt.

If the drive belt came off and wont stay on, either the Drum Bearings are gone, or the large pully is buckled.

Frigidaire washer GLTF2940ES wont spin out


does it spin at all? It does have a belt, so that's the first place to look. If it does spin some, you probably have a bad control panel.

The belt on our front load moffit washer wont stay on.boght a new one.same thing. fustrated.


Only explanation is the bearings in your tub are faulty causing a missalignment of the belt. Possibly there might be an issue at the motor side. Inspect carefully for possible problem.

I need to know how to install the new belt


The following link explains how to install the belt on a Whirlpool Duet front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3059652-drive_belt_installation_whirlpool_duet

This is an easy process, but it may take some effort to get the belt on the pulley. It is designed for a tight fit in order for the belt to stay in place on the tub pulley with no play in it. There is no tensioner and you do not loosen any motor mounts. Just make sure you hold the belt tightly in place with your hands and turn the entire tub pulley (like a steering wheel) in a clock-wise direction. The belt will stay on after you turn the pulley far enough for it to grip and stay in place.

If you have not purchased a replacement belt yet, the part number for the model you have this listed under is 8181670.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.
