This is an easy fix and I'lll be glad to help. I know they are heavy, but pull the washer away from the wall. If you can get behind with the water hoses and drain connected more power to you. Do however unplug the machine.

Now, there is a panel at the back of the washer with.. 8 screws i think. These are 9/32 nut driver I believe. Once this panel is gone set it aside. You are now face to face with the belt. Take the old belt off (if it is still there). Now, take the new belt and loop it on the motor shaft first. Make sure each rib is in a groove on the motor shaft. Then loop the other side on the large pulley on the back of the tub. Naturally this is a tight fit, but put some of the belt on the pulley and rotate the pulley. This will pull the belt onto the pulley and you will be done!

Let me know if I can be of further assistance :D good luck!

Tighten belt on duet whirlpool front loading washer


There is no adjustment for the belt of WP front load. If you hear loud noise when the drum is spinning because the drum bearing was loosen. If you have insurance cover tell them to replace. Else, a cost of repair is expensive.

Tip

Drive Belt Installation on a Whirlpool Front Loading Washer


This advice is on how to replace the drive belt on Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite front loader washing machines. To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and turn the washing machine around so you can access the back panel. Remove the rear panel by locating and loosening the screws around the perimeter of the panel.

2. Loop the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the drum pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

If you have any questions, or are uncertain if these steps apply to your washer (some newer model Maytag front loaders are now manufactured by Whirlpool) please provide me with a model number and I can let you know if these steps apply. I hope this information is helpful.
