Question about Amana ALW480DA Top Load Washer
Do the springs need to be removed and the base of the washer taken off to replace the belt?
No. The motor and pump assembly need to come off.
There is 4 1/2 inch bolts that hold this assembly to the main mechanism. 2 on top and 2 on bottom. Work belt off bottom pulley on transmission and then remove these bolts. Turn motor over and remove 3 torx screws holding pump to motor. Install new belt then reinstall pump with 3 screws. Reinstall assemblt to mech. Pu top 2 screws in first then bottom 2. Be sure belt goes on left side of black plastic idler pulley. Work belt around transmission pulley. You can press on opposite end of idler pulley arm to loosen belt tension. Make sure belt is on all pulleys before testing.
