This drive belt is made to slip on the motor pulley to bring the basket up to the speed required and this makes the belt get wear and tear.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Codes did not point directly to the door lock, so that was a 50/50 between door lock and control board. With top of washer removed door lock is just a couple screws and 3 electrical connections.Belt was worn and frayed. Belt replacement was tricky because new belt was so tight. Used vice grips to lightly hold belt on pulley while using screwdriver through spokes into tub back to ratchet/control pulley. Not too bad.Works like new!

Went by the percentage of people with same problem- door switch was the highest. Ordered door switch and a new belt (belt was getting worn- 6 yrs. old) Door switch did not fix problem. Saw on website that it could be motor control board. Took motor control board out. Nothing visible wrong with anything. Decided not to spend $$ on new board. Figured new washer would be better. Put motor control board back in and tried it......works like new! Must have been a loose wire on the motor control board. Next time I will check wires first. :) Getting motor control board in and out was time consuming but no too hard.
Simple. Remove the drive belt from the pulley. Next remove the retaining screw and remove the old pulley. Put the new pulley on the hub, then insert the retaining screw and tighten securely. Last, replace the belt over the motor and hub pulley. This was the most difficult part as the new belt was quite tight. But once I convinced myself it was the right belt a little more effort yielded results and the belt fit fine.
Very easy to replace belt on this model, belt had spilt and the loose rubber was flopping around and dislodged plug from water pump. Washer would not start cycle, display showed (no spin). Removed back access panel with screwdriver. Spin the pulley and slip belt off pulleys. New belt is very tight but it will go on, no tension adjustment on this model. Thanks part select quick service will order again from this company.
after clearing shelving. It took about 20 minutes to remove the dryer stacked on top, along with the gas line and the vent hose.....Two screws and gently pry the back up with a screwdriver and the top pops off. open the door and remove the 2 screws while reaching down inside and the switch come right up with its 3 plug harness.swap the old switch unit for the new one and slip it back down into place and reinstall the screws, and done in about 15 minutes.my belt is in good shape so I will save the one I bought for later.the handle is 2 screws and took less than 2 minutes.It took about 20 minute to put the washer/dryer units back together and against the wall and running
