put the belt on the motor pulley then start with the other end on the drum pulley and turn it with your hand , i hope this makes sense . the object is to let the pulley do the work of stretching the belt into position
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 20:46 Thur evening.
All washing machines, whether front or top loaders, must have all of their feet firmly on the floor to operate without rocking n' rolling and being unstable!
With the machine NOT running push one front corner firmly diagonally (tawards the centre) and if it moves it is THAT foot which requires adjusting downwards until it is really firmly- almost pushing- on the floor. If not that corner do the same with the other. Once the machine is REALLY stable ensure that the locking nuts lock the feet in position so that they will not unscrew and make the machine unstable yet again. Might take a little time but it is imperative, not only for good operation but it also saves damage to the drum supporting mechanism.
Hi, I believe the cause of your washing machine's "rocking" problem is the result of the machine not being properly balanced (on all four legs). Let me explain. On the bottom of your washer and dryer, are four "adjustable" legs. These legs screw up or screw down. If you adjust these four legs so that the washer is perfectly square with your floor, your rocking problem will go away. This should do the trick. Good Luck!
You have a Clutch malfunction common problem with the FAV6800A and FAV9800A TL's. Owners very seldom report all the conditions of wild tub swings. You are on the ball with info feedback. See if this post Clutch Fix will get you started. Post back if you have questions or need help.........Rich

Unplug the machine at least 30 seconds
Turn the dial to the spin cycle, but do NOT pull it out yet.
Plug the machine back in and then lift and close the lid 11 times within 15 seconds and finally pull the knob to start the washer on spin cycle.
Is this a new occurence or has it been that way all along? What type of floor is your machine installed on? A soft floor such as pergo or soft shiny lino can cause the washer to be a wild monster when it spins. We placed a commercial type rug with a thick rubber back completely under our washer and that seems to hold it in place perfectly. I received this advice after a service call.
If it has not been happening all along, it could be that you have a problem with the machine being unlevel or that you do have a problem with the tub. Does the tub actually seem loose if you turn it with your hand when empty? Extra heavy loads will contribute to a wild spin as well, and loads that are mixed items. (such as towels with cotton shirts.) it is better to wash the same with each other and not too full.
Good luck to you and thank you for using Fixya! if you have anymore questions or comments, please feel free to get back to me.
