Hello again,

Hope you haven't waited long, i was watching a hockey game and so i just got your message.

The best and easiest way to install the new belt is to unfasten the motor bracket from the base, then undo the pump as that will allow the pump to come off.

( t may need to be wiggled bit as it can get stuck on the shaft, or a spray of WD40 or equivalent on the shaft will usually work too )

Then you can loop the belt around the motor pulley, reinstall the pump, then the motor. From there you should be able to rap the belt around the drive pulley, belt tensioner.

I'd suggest you take few photos or draw a diagram of how the old belt is routed before installing the new one, but other than that you should be good to go.

**Of course turn the power off or unlug it from the first**

Hope this helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further and I will try and help in any manner I can. Good luck.

How do I change the vacuum cleaner belt on a eureka bagless old v.c.don't have model not sure where it is. Called the Boss around 10???yrs old PLEASE help

I know you have to remove the brush and roller to slip the new belt on on any of these type vacuums ..
usually they slide in place and have a bearing or bush each end
there should be a plate with screws underneath the vacuum
then remember which way the belt is twisted for them to work in the right direction ...take pictures as you go for a reference

If the motor is "OK" (turning), then it's not a fuse, it's the belt that the motor drives to power the slide change mechanism. There are 2 belts: 1 that drives the fan & one that drives the slide change mechanism.

I am havtng trouble installing the serpentine belt

Dont know if you have the 6 or the V8 model but they are similar. Pull plastic front off the idler pulley. Put a wrench on it to release tension, slide old belt off slide new belt on. If your pulley has gone bad this is the best time to replace it.

I don't need the belt. What I want to know is how to change the belt after the old one is off. Can't move alternator to slide belt over last pulley. what's next?

You need to loosen the belt tensioner bolt to give you some slack to make the last pulley. Please take a look here Click Me for a photo of the belt tensioner. I hope this helped and please dont forget to rate my answer and have a great weekend!

Belt amana washer replace mod lw6501w2

I have a similar amana top load washer and just changed the belt. Here are the steps I used to change the belt:
1) Unplug the washer
2) Slide the washer away from the wall about 12"
3) Remove two screws from the bottom of the front panel, slide the front panel down (there are 2 metal tabs that slide into slots on the top of the front panel - observe how they slide into/out of the slots). Set the panel aside.
4) Remove the electrical connector (upper left of motor). Press down on the top of the plastic connector - this will undo the catch hook holding the connection in place). Observe how the belt is routed before proceeding.
5) Remove 4 bolts holding the motor in place. You can remove the motor - even with the water pump and hoses in place - they will flex.
6) Remove the water pump from the motor. There are 3 torx - head screws to remove. Note: You will need a star shaped (torx) head driver (Looks like a screwdriver but with a "star" head on it. The one I used measured just under 3/16 in diameter.
7) carefully remove the water pump. - remove the old belt from main pulley under washer drum and also from the water pump. Insert the new belt - be sure to put the tension pulley on the outside of the belt.
8) Reinstall the water pump to the motor. Reinstall the motor. Route the belt correctly in the water pump body area first - them slide the belt around the left side of the main drum pulley - rotate the pulley counter-clockwise and the pulley will tug the belt onto the pulley. Once in place - check bolts and belt - then reattach the electrical connector (remember to press the plastic lever on top of the plastic connector before sliding it in place). Reattach front panel - slide the top of the panel onto the metal tabs - then attach screws at the bottom.
