Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Very old but loved Kenmore Washer, Model110.7314613, needs new belt after old one burned apart...at least I discovered the broken end sticking out the back when the smoke cleared. Anyway, replacement belt has instructions for cumbersome reinstall...but the diagram doesn't look very much like what is pictured in my 1973 manual although belt number 98537 is the same. Too, do I really have to tip the washer over just to slip on a new belt? Perhaps I'm in over my head but Sears wants to charge $85 to come out and take a look, likely more if he has to DO something. I'd really like to try this myself but instructions make it look VERY complicated and labor-intensive, especially pulling the machine over onto its front. Changed a dryer belt once, didn't seem such a big deal. Any tips or hints? Thanks.
I haven't worked on a belt drive but here is the Sears parts site for your washer with diagrams of the console, drive system etc. You may get a better idea of how to replace the belt from these.
Here also is the Whirlpool / Amana installation and maintenance document for Amana belt drive washers. It may look similar to yours.
The other thing I'd check is Whirlpools list of documentation for their laundry products. Check some of the washers that they make for one that looks like yours and you should get a better idea.
