Question about Washing Machines
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
As with most things they vary from one model to the next.
Generally you'll need to remove the back panel and rap the belt first around the motor pulley and then turn it like a bike chain around the larger drum drive pulley ( watch your fingers for pinching...oouch ! )
It should resemble this, though it is only one model...WFK2401, but essentially the same.
Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance.
Thank's for choosing FixYa, please take a moment and rate the info provided for you here today and good luck.

Front load washers are convenient and easy to use. They offer the convenience of extra capacity and tend to wash clothes a little better than their top loading counterparts. Sometimes, however, the belt that drives the drum will break and need to be replaced. Replacing a drive belt on front load washers is not that difficult and can be performed by many home mechanics.
Use the screwdrivers to remove the screws in the rear access panel of the washer and then pull off the panel.
Locate the pump coupling, which is the rubber part that connects the motor to the water pump, and unscrew the clamps securing it to the motor. Once the coupling is removed, tension is removed from the belt.
Slide the belt off of the pulley assemblies and slide the new belt in its stead. Reattach the coupling with the mounting clamps and check the tension on the belt. You should be able to wiggle the belt a bit, but not more than an inch or so.
4 Close the access panel and turn on the machine. Run it through a cycle while observing it to see how it handles the belt change.
Be sure to unplug the washing machine before beginning to work on it. thnak and thanks for using fixya.
