Drive Belt Installation on a Whirlpool Front Loading Washer


This advice is on how to replace the drive belt on Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite front loader washing machines. To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and turn the washing machine around so you can access the back panel. Remove the rear panel by locating and loosening the screws around the perimeter of the panel.

2. Loop the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the 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 drum 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, or are uncertain if these steps apply to your washer (some newer model Maytag front loaders are now manufactured by Whirlpool) please provide me with a model number and I can let you know if these steps apply. I hope this information is helpful.

My whirlpool duet washer is frozen and locked. It says it has 25 minutes left on the cycle and I can hear the motor trying to work, but nothing is happening. I unplugged it and nothing has changed. ...


I had the same problem with ours, turns out the bearing in the hub seized. Took off the belt, motor turns just fine. If you take the back cover off, (unplus washer first) slip the belt off the pulley, and the pulley still won't spin freely, then you have the same problem.

Not sure how expensive the fix is, hub assembly is $200

Washer wont spin ...motor runs but drum doesnt


If this is a Duet front loader, you need to check to see if the drive belt may have broken, or slipped off the drive pulley behind the wash tub.

To access and replace/reinstall the belt, the following link explains:

If you have any questions, or if the model washer you have is different, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

How to replace belt on a whirlpool front loading washer,


This is an easy fix and I'lll be glad to help. I know they are heavy, but pull the washer away from the wall. If you can get behind with the water hoses and drain connected more power to you. Do however unplug the machine.

Now, there is a panel at the back of the washer with.. 8 screws i think. These are 9/32 nut driver I believe. Once this panel is gone set it aside. You are now face to face with the belt. Take the old belt off (if it is still there). Now, take the new belt and loop it on the motor shaft first. Make sure each rib is in a groove on the motor shaft. Then loop the other side on the large pulley on the back of the tub. Naturally this is a tight fit, but put some of the belt on the pulley and rotate the pulley. This will pull the belt onto the pulley and you will be done!

Let me know if I can be of further assistance :D good luck!

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.
