Bad drum belt

Our whirlpool washer drum wasn't turning and there was a thunking noise from the machine when the drum should have been rotating.

I opened the top and back of the washer using a ratchet wrench. There were 4 screws holding on the top (at the top rear of the machine) and about 12 or more holding on the back panel. Removing these I could see the belt had become frayed, had come off of the drum, and was bunched around the motor drive wheel. The old belt was still usable, but clearly not going to last much longer so I purchased a new belt. The new belt was tighter than the old belt (which is good) and so took a fair amount of effort to get back onto the drum. I had to hold in place while turning the drum, something hard to do because of the braces on the back of the washer get in your way. But, I eventually got the belt propery seated. I then replaced the back and top panels. All appears to be working as it should.

Washer belt stretched from years of use and walked off pulleys

I pulled the washer away from the wall to comfortably access the back panel. I then removed about a dozen 1/4 drive screws. I had to remove all the screws in the panel and the screws and cross brace directly behind the drum in order to install the new belt. Note: it will seem like the belt is too small when in reality it is perfect. There is no type of adjustments or tensioners that I found so you need to place the belt on the motor pulley correctly and then walk the belt on the drum pulley. Make sure the belt is lined up with the marks on the drum pulley that the original belt had left. You may need to attempt to walk the belt on 2 or 3 times before it finally goes on. If you have any mechanical knowledge you will find this to be a gravy job.
