Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

Diagram with replacement belt doesn't seem to match old manual

Very old but loved Kenmore Washer, Model110.7314613, needs new belt after old one burned 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.$FILE/Amana_Searcy_TL_Washer.pdf

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.

How do i replace the drive belt

If you tip the washer back, you should be able to see the drive belt on the bottom of the machine. Chances are, the belt broke and didn't just fall off. I would suggest taking the old belt (which you'll find there on the floor) to an appliance store and have them match it up with a new one. Installation is fairly straight forward. It will go around the motor, transmission pulley, the water pump, and a tensioner (if equipped.) I hope this helps! :)

I need to change the belt. Old one broke. Have new one and need to know how to install it. we have no manual. Need a diagram. Please help running out of clean closes....Thank you

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If you're sure that you have a model that uses a belt, see the following:

Most recent top load Whirlpool / Kenmore washers don't use a belt. They use a Motor Coupler between the motor and transmission. If yours is one of these, see the following.:

You have to get behind the dryer and remove the back. This will give you access to basically everything.

I am replacing belt on kenmore dryer but the new one from lowes seems to small are there multiple size belts for kenmore?

You need to match the belt to the specific make and model of dryer. There are several online appliance repair parts suppliers that can provide great assistance, and in some cases, the OEM part number for the belt. With the latter, appliance outlets like Lowes should be able to verify that the belt purchased is the part needed. In addition, check your owner's manual for a specific part number for the drive belt.
