Re: putting belt on top load amana washer moder #unknown
There is a large pulley directly under the washer drum that runs the
transmission. There is a small one connected to the motor shaft, and a
third which is attached to a spring-arm and acts as a tensioner.
Pay attention to the direction the tensioner moves. The back of the belt should go against the inside of the tensioner when it is released.
The easiest way I've found to get the belt back on is to thread it around the small pulley, and tensioner, then start it on one side of the large pulley, and rotate the large pulley to allow the belt to thread onto it.

The belt should already be pretty tight after wrapping around the barrel and the motor pulley. The belt may be worn and should be inspected and probably replaced.
To prevent similar problems in the future I suggest you be aware of how big of a load you put in the washer.
take the bottom panel out(2 screws) then the upper panel out(its clips) now the pump need to take off the shaft 3 screws then you can put the new belt in it with tention from the pully roller... try to see if there are video for that in youtube...good luck not so EZ to do :(
The belt can be replaced as follows. 1 remove top and front of dryer shell 2 belt goes around drum around motor pully then under tentioner wheel 3 replace front and top of dryer (top pops off use a slotted screw driver) Thanx for using Fixya Please take your time to rate me
Hi, put the belt on the bottom pully and feed the rest up to the top pully, fit the belt on to half of the top pully, now open the door of the washer and very carefuly turn the drum while holding the belt tight to the pully, take care not to get your fingers trapped, make sure that the belt stays on both pullys by rotating the drum by hand a few times, if it all looks ok and central then the jobs a good un.
this washer your have to take the 2 1/2" bolts on each side the motor then you will have to take 3 star bit screws out of the bottom of the pump slide the pump off then put it all back together and then after mounting you motor and pump back up put it on the transmission puller
To replace the belt on your Amana washer, pull the unit forward then tilt the top of it back to about a 45 degree angle. Once you get the right angle, the unit will rest against the wall behind it instead of falling forward. Take your new belt (availble through local appliance parts stores or on line from the manufactures web site) and first put it in the track around the large pulley, then the track on the smaller pulley on the right. Lastly, the pulley on your left should be moveable. Move the final pulley so that you can get the belt over it. It will then move back to a tensioning position.
hook the belt around the motor spindle first then get the belt as far round the pully as you can once at that stage hold the belt firmly as you can on the pully and turn the pully round making sure that the belt does not slip off keep turning the puully round till the belt is fully on once on spin the drum around by hand to make sure that it is on the pully square with motor spindle. job done. if this helped please leave feed back.
