Set it face down on padding so the door is not damaged. Remove the back panel by removing all the screws around the edges, and if you see a nut on a threaded stub where the centre of the drum is, remove that too. You may also have to detach the power cord from a slot or clamp at the edge. Lift away the back panel, and take careful note of how the belt fits. It will be like one of these

If the old belt is broken, try to match up one of these diagrams. Apply pressure against the spring on the tensioner pulley to introduce slack in the belt path, remove any old belt, and fit the new one.

WHIRLPOOL AWZ8577 dryer will not heat up. Is there a thermostate reset or online fuse with this model, any help will be appreciated.

More likely the heating element is gone. Purchase a replacement and install it. You will need to open the back of the dryer to get to it. Replacement is simple.

My whirlpool washer does not spin, i open it up today and notice the belt on the spin wheel is twisted and around the wheel but not connect to the shaft. please help.

You will need to remove the belt and replace with a new belt. If the belt is broken kindly get the same type with the dimensions for replacement.
Place the belt on the drive wheel and run it over the motor pulley and manually turn it on so as to fit it into the slot.

I'm installing a drive belt on a Whirlpool LEW0050PQ dryer. I've opened the back of the unit to expose the drum and drive motor. The new belt, part # 8182481, will have to stretch at least 3" to...

if it is a rubber belt like a big "O" ring it is necessary to warm up the rubber by stretching it (like you are building up your abs)
it will be tight to fit but it will go on

How to replace the belt on a whirlpool duet washer

To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and remove the rear panel.

2. Place the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the drive motor pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

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

Belt on whirlpool duet washer ghw9100lw1

This can be a finger buster. I put it on the motor pulley and roll it onto the tub pulley. I have seen others use a large crowbar to slide it over the motor pulley last but that seem risky to me. It is a very tight fit.
