Purchased x4 new adjustable legs. Leaned the washer back and held in place with block of wood.

Bought a house and inherited an ancient set of appliances. I figured that they dont make em like they use to so why get rid of them. Noticed the dryer tub wasnt spinning one day after running through three cycles. I took the back off and realized the belt that made the tub spin was broke. Went ahead and ordered both belts (old age catches us all) so i wouldnt have to order the other a few weeks later. Pulled the spring took the old belt off put on the new ones like ya would a bike chain. Used the pliers to put the spring back on and voila.
