First unplug the washer and take the back cover off. Loosen the screw on the motor and the big nut on the belt wheel. Take the old belt off and put the new belt on around the motor but slip the motor back in place with the screw slightly in place but do not tighten it yet. Place the belt around the motor and the wheel but this is hard because you need some one with some strength so the is where my dear boyfriend came in handy. He used his strength to stretch the belt and put it back on the machine so I could put the big nut back on. But if you break a wire you have to know a little electrical to put back the wires back in place with small connectors. I do know electrical also. My machine is working better like new. Carol Rozier
