Since my missus keeps her appliances like new, it behoves us to buy something of good quality when new. We did that. Now, after almost 20 years, the washer complained it needed new belts, which I complied. Tilted it up against the wall after pulling power cord. Removed both belts and replaced. Adjusted pump belt by loosening pump and then retightening. This is easy to get to by removing front (removing 2 philips screws). Piece of cake.

I followed the others directions and it's important to note that both nuts involed are indeed left handed threads. Also the it's important to know that[at least on my machine] that the set screw on the agitator is a torx headed set srew, not an allen srew. Other than that it was a pretty quick fix.

put on the new belt. it also smelled like smoke when we first ran. upon further inspection, saw that the drum was not turning easily. felt around the top inside edge of the drum, found the real problem- there was a sock jammed on the top edge between the drum and rim. removing the sock was easy, and then everything worked great!

I viewed and followed the PartSelect Instruction Video. My only problem was reattaching the door after the hinges fell off.Everything fell into place as the video indicated. After I regrouped I was able to put the hinges back and then I was able to reattach the side panel very easily as the vedio indicated. Thanks for everything.

I turned the washer over and slipped off the old belt and then slipped on the new. The motor was spring loaded making the pepair extremely easy requiring no tools.
