Dane, if your washer is less than about 17-18 years old, you do not have a belt that can be tightened. If it is older than that, you can get behind the washer and take the small panel off of the back, and to your left, you will see your motor hanging under the deck the tub is mounted on. On the top side of the deck there is a nut and bolt that is mounted in a slot. Loosen the nut and take a pry bar or other long handled tool and put it through the motor supports under the deck and push the motor to your left. Tighten the nut back down and check your belt. You should only be able to push it in and pull it out only about a half inch of movement. If you have a newer washer than you have a different problem and you might need to have a regular repairman take a look at it. Hope this helps!

Agitator does NOT spin along w/ drum during spin cycle


If this is the old style that uses a belt, it is not worth fixing. But the problem sounds like the wig-wam is not functioning properly. Most of the time it was a wire broken since it moves back and forth constantly.

Washer will not spin


There is a safety switch on the lid ... when it went out of balance perhaps the adjustment changed or it got damaged (loose wire etc.) BE SURE TO PULL THE PLUG BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS
