I brought the wash machine out side, hooked a garden hose to the cold, capped the hot, took off 2ft. square back inspection cover, and plugged in the power cord for a test for leakage location. The hose from tub to pump had a small wear hole, thus leaking water on the belt and making it slip more. When my parts came in from Parts Select the repair was about 45 mins. with coffee. I laid unit on side, cleaned pulleys with rag to remove old belt fragments, and I put new belt on the 2 small pulleys then rolling onto last bigger pulley. For the hose repair- I used a screwdriver to push in the clips under front of top lid. I removed 2 screws with my 1/4 rachet to remove front panel. With my channel locks I pulled off hose , then installed new hose. The unit works great.
