Question about Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I am having to assume this is a front loader!
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!

Tips for a great answer:
Good Morning Steve Wilkes, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is squealing and making a loud noise while it is spinning. I understand that you would like to know how to locate if the bearing is bad or the belt. Unfortunately there are no instructions to provide you to locate which part could be faulty. Since it could be either one of these issues I would recommend contacting a professional technician to have a diagnosis to be completed this will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt
