Question about LG RC897T DVD Recorder/VCR Combo
The load belt can be located inside the mechanism of your DVD player, just beneath the slide draw. You have to open it to locate it. In most DVDs this belt can be replaced without dismandling anything. OK

It sounds like you need a new load belt. Installing the belt is a complicated process, not impossible, but if you have not done it before it could be daunting.
If you want to try it you will need to remove the cover. Take out the screws on the rear and any located on the sides. Remove the cover. Now you need to disconnect any wires attached to the DVD. Mark them first for easy assembly. Remove the screws holding the unit to the base and any other mounting screws. Remove the DVD and take the screws out of the sides to remove the cover.
From here it will be something which you will have to determine as every unit is different. You will probably have to remove the load assembly. This is the tricky part. Reassembly will require making sure the timing is correct.
If this seems like more than you need to deal with you may want to buy a new unit as they are not that expensive today. Another solution would be to push the door shut manually until the belt finally gives out completely.
