How to replace belt??

I've just purchased a new belt for the ALW480DAW front loader, but, it seems to be so much slack on the new belt. I can't find where to slip the belt on too. There seems to be one big "wheel", underneath the drum, but, when I put the belt around there is still too much slack. I can't seem to find another pulley to slip the belt around. Also should the drum be able to turn with no belt on??. Not too sure what the problem is, but, am hoping it is only the belt. Old belt "melted" during a lockup when washing.

Below are 2 diagrams. Replace the bolts you've removed. Rotate existing belt counter clockwise to disengage the belt tensioner. Once it releases, you should be able to remove the old belt and replace it (using the diagram below). Once you start the car, the belt tensioner will automatically take up the slack.

I need to replace the belt on my Amana ALW480DAW. The other one burnt up and broke. I have the new one. Do you have a diagram I could view to help me install the new one?

Installation of new serpentine belt on 2002 Chevy Cavalier

Use a 3/8" socket end to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise. It may seem stiff, but that's a good thing... you want the tension to be there. After it's off the tensioner the belt will pretty much just come out of place and off the other pulleys. ***make sure you orientate the belt as it was originally (ac or w/ ac)...diagram should be on the front shroud.

Whirlpool Duet Front Loader won't get up to spin speed

Careful of overloading the front-loading washers. Too much of this will result in the bearings in the drum to go bad. When this happens, the rpms on the drum slow down due to belt slack. You can only see this with the back off of the unit and in the middle of the cycle. They do not sell replacement bearings...you'll have to buy the whole drum (bearings pressed inside) and for 1/2 the cost of a new washer. I hate front-loaders. I'll never buy one again.

Amana ALW480DAW washer

Remove the front panel by loosening the two screws that hold it in place. Unhook the spring that puts tension on the tension pulley. Remove old/worn belt and replace with new belt. Very important that you use the correct size belt or the motor may be damaged and remember to hook the spring back for the tension pulley. The new belt has to go around the inside of the tension pulley.
