Belt had worn and was shredding and melting due to pump not draining tub. Too bad my wife and daughters couldn't tell me the pump wasn't working right any sooner. The belts slow disintigration over time made a black, gooey mess inside the machine. Worked on the machine in place and only removed front. Old belt removal was easy with screwdriver prying around motor pulley but replacement was challenging in the tight space under the machine. It did go on by working-rotating belt around back of agitator pulley. By far the hardest part of the job. Replacing pump was easy enough but made a water mess and had to adjust clamps for leaks. Machine is now good to go.
