1st: (I assume you have of the ront panel and machine is unplugged) Look at the motor. The pump is below it(right). Disconnect the pump hose watch out water is still in the pump. 2nd: Identify the 4 1/2" mounting bolts holding the Motor frame to the washer frame. Take those out. Careful the motor will drop so try to prop it up or cushion it(don't want to break the motor) 3rd: Pull off spring on tensioner pulley(do not lose this). Then take off belt(if not already off) Pull the motor and mount out. 4th: Youu will need some torx bits to remove the pump( I think it is the t-20 or t-25 it's just good to buy a little set of them). It should have three of them. Before you take off the pump look how the belt is orientated to the pump. After you get teh pump off it is easy and self explanatory. Then assemble in reverse except wait to the last to put the belt around the big pulley under the washer tub. Also it can be helpfull to have another person hold the motor as you try to start the 1/2" mounting bolt. Hope this helps you.

look around the motor you will see the mounting bolts they just might need to be losend or removed in order to remove and install the new belt some have a sleeve in the middle of the bolt that needs to be removed, try to do one bolt at a time, some times that helps.

I have an amana Model ALW880QAW Top Loading Washing Machine. It sounds like a bearing is going bad when the washer is in the spin cycle. I am familiar with repairing applicances and I would like to know if...

I have an Amana top loading washing machine.. The machine recently emitted a burning odor and the machine has stopped spinning. when turned to spin cycle there are bumping sounds and it no longer spins. Does this model have a belt which might need replacing or does it have a transmission and does it sound like possibly extensive transmission work. If it is the transmission, is it likely repair costs would be greater than the value of this machine?
