SOURCE: 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.

    Need to replace the drive belt (I think!) on a Whirlpool washer model# 110.20912 990. The agitator won't turn but I can hear the motor run. Please tell me how to replace the belt. Thank you!!!

    According to the model number you provided, there is not a belt on your machine. Probably what has broken is the coupler between the motor and the transmission. http www searspartsdirect com Kenmore Washer Parts Model 11020912990 0582...

    Look at part # 13 the coupler. Hope this helps!
