    Thank You so much for you solution. There was a sock suck in the wall. I cannot seem to find anthing else in there. When I move the tub counter clockwise it seems to move just fine but when I move it clock wise it sticks and is hard to turn, and if is turn counterclockwise again it moves freely. Any solutions for this matter would greatly be appreciated. Again THANK YOU for all you help.

We'll assume no problems with the belt installation - the tensioned idler pulley is pressing against the belt etc.
You didn't say whether it drained out OK or specify what model but it sounds like the brake is stuck or there's something caught in the basket. Try turning the main drive pulley (the one in the middle) Even with it full of water it should turn freely. Take the tub top off and check for foriegn obects stuck between the basket and outer tub. A wire coat hanger works well fro this.

First I noticed that the clothes after washing them were still a little too wet---then a month later, a loud noise ensued. no leaking no smoke and still wet clothes, also no shaking.

Sounds as if the belt may have a flat spot in it. They run about 24 dollars online. Take
a look at it by unplugging it and having someone hold the machine back at an angle.
There should be an obvious area of excessive wear somewhere on the belt.
Also check the idler pulley (wheel) for excessive play or binding. Hope this helps.

My speed queen washer made a high pitch noise when spinning. i took the front off and saw the belt was almost cut in half. how do i replace it?

Easy,It just slips over the fluid drive after disconnecting the link to the spin solenoid, then on to the pump pulley.
Adjustment is made by the motor mount.adjustment bolt.
Good luck.
