You shouldn't have to loosen it, put the belt on the motor first and half way round the drum pully, turn the pulley slowly holding the belt in place and the belt should go on.

Normally the motor is below the drum & the belt can be tightened by adjusting the screws which can lower the motor from one side. Best way to adjust the screws for tightening is keep the belt on drum wheel & motor pulley & then lower the motor for adjustment.

How to replace washing machine belt on a Miele Novotronic

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm sorry but I do not know your particular machine but here are instructions which are suitable for most front loaders.

REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK. I have to assume that the back is removable.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
Hope this helps the situation with your Miele.
Good luck,
John C

Install belt on Amana top load washing machine

Use the correct sized belt!!

Loosen the Motor mounting Bolts. ( Do not take it off ) Now the motor assembly can be moved towards the opposite large pulley.

Replace the belt in this position and slide the motor to it's original position. You adjust it in such away so that, the belt is not too tight or loose!

I want to know how to change the belt in my ge washing machine . g.e. model # gw983k i seem to ger a burning smell when it starts up with a heavy load.

Remove the front cover of the washer by sliding a screw driver to release the clips.
Loosen the 4 nuts that hold the drive belt motor
Push the motor back to release the drive belt.
Replaced the new drive belt.
Pull motor until drive belt was snug and tighted the 4 bolts.
At the same time, replace the 4 tub dampening straps located at the top of the tub (if too old) so the unit looks like new.

The washer is making loud squealing noises. I took the front panel off to take a close look and notice the motor is able to be moved back and forth. Is this normal? I tried tightening the mounts and it...

Set the drive belt over the drum, loosen the motor slightly, because I think you are cross treading the belt. check the belt before fitting to see if there is any damage to the belt. With your hand put the belt on to the drum, back onto the motor, turn very slowly until the belt finds it's own parallel (the grooves line up), then tighten the motor exactly where it is in place. If there is NO damage to the belt, set the machine onto a fast spin, empty. That should tell you it's a belt problem. But you may have to spend 10 bucks on a new belt. Cheaper than a new machine. Hope all goes go well for you, let me know! Dave

Putting a belt back on. On a front load Washing Machine

There should be a adjustment to tighten the
belt a bracket similar to bracket to tighten
a belt on a automobile alternator you will
probably need a open end or combination
wrench or you might be able to get it with a
socket wrench

if you can get the belt over one pulley
and over the top of the other pulley and
then turn the pully towards you it may
pop on with the help of a large screwdriver

make sure it unplugged
