Hi. I am assuming you have the front cover off to be able to see the belt laying on the base. First thing is to make sue all bolts holding the motor assembly to inner frame are tight. Next, check your SPRINGS and their mounts...Rust and corrosion is main cause of failure. The belt goes around the water pump,transmission pully and inside of idler(tensioner) pully. Good luck!

Check the belt idler wheel by the motor. You may have to apply a little pressure to this wheel to see if the belt stops slipping. Keep in mind that the belt may be worn or stretched

SOURCE: How to replace belt on washer

Haha Yes With the very limited info you have provided us I still think I can help You just in the future be more specific. This is a Amana or Speed Queen washer?? To replace the belt Remove hoses from pump, remove wiring connector from motor, dislodge 2 front tub springs from tub end. Remove 4 -- 1/2 head bolts holding motor/pump frame to washer frame. Remove motor/pump from washer turn upside down. 3 Torx bolts hold pump to motor. Belt must be routed through pump proper. REinstall pump.

SOURCE: washing machine belt replacement

The repair sounds worse than it is.

2 hose clamps
4 big bolts
3 torx screws
a little wiggling and viola!

hints: take a good look (or digital pix) of the belt before you remove the pump, keep a few large towels around to handle the water in the hoses and to cover the front edge of the machaine to make it more comfortable when you're removing and installing the motor, the connector has a latch you have to press while removing the cable, the mounts for the motor frame/pump assy. need to be sprung out a bit when reinstalling.

Comment: the shaft from the motor is "double-D" shaped and slips into a plastic fitting in the middle of the pump. I don't see how you can break the pump unless you drop the motor assy on it...

Kudos to "sir fixalot" for giving me the courage to rip in to it...

MY Dad is trying to change the belt on anold Amana


I found a description of the repair procedure on the RepairClinic.com website. Now, I haven't done the repair yet, but It confirms that I won't break something by using force to get the pump off the motor shaft, as I had feared that I would.

Thanks for asking.

My washer (ALW880QAW) agitates but does not spin. I took off the front cover and the found a black circular piece lying there (What it goes to I do not know). The belt looks okay. The motor goes in spin...


That is the drive coupler and it has worn out. You can order a replacement set that comes with two plastic retaining pieces that slide onto both your transmission and engine and also a rubber piece that goes in between these two plastic pieces. You can search many places to find out how to replace this part. I just ordered a set and shopped around a bit and mine was $20 after shipping.

Kitchen Pro K6725 drive belt shredded.


Hi, I have the same machine and the belt was in tiny rotten pieces...I wound a piece of yarn around the wheel and drive shaft (lie the machine on a kitchen counter, lid open and hanging down off of the counter, bottoms up, and remove the screws from the teardrop shaped brass colored safety cover, remove the cover and expose the wheel and drive shaft) pull the yarn tight and knot it. Then cut the yarn about an inch from the knot. Measure the yarn when pulled on a little. Mine measured 23.5"....I then googled bread machine belt 23.5" and up came one for an Oster Bread Machine (The one I was repairing was a Regal Kitchen Pro 6725) from totalvac.com located at 2 De Bush Ave Unit A8 Middleton, MA 01949
It was $7.95 for the belt, $6.95 S & H to a VA address, total cost $14.90 so I decided to give it a shot. When it got here, I removed the safety cover, held the machine up and shook as much of the old rotten rubber belt pieces out as I could, and replaced the belt by placing it over the sticky string on the drive shaft and teasing it over the wheel. It is an exact fit. Be sure the ribbed side of the belt is down against the wheel. Screw the cover back on and run it through a dough cycle so that the belt will get coated with the sticky stuff from the sticky string on the drive shaft. Until the belt is coated, it will turn the mixing blade, but it will slip. Hope this helps. Patti

Your question suggests you are trying to remove the pump pulley. This pulley is not removable. The motor pulley should have a set allen screw in it to release.
