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.

Washer will not do a spin cycle for rinse or end of cycle


you can check two things,. One is, is the belt broken or stretched, the other is the motor, is the motor turning if the motor is turning then replace the belt. If the motor is not turning replace the motor.

The belt fell off my kenmore fl washer, how do I replace it?


The question is why did the belt come off? this is unusual.

The belt does not have a tensioner the motor does this. you will need to loosen motor and then apply belt tension. Typical belt tension is 70lbs.

While you have the machine open make sure the driven pulley is tight, and doesnt wiggle or move you may have bearing problems.

How does the belt look, frayed or ripped you could have a bad belt unlikely but this could have been original problem, however check machine out first.
