I have confirmed I have the correct replacement belt for my model washing machine. My question: After reviewing a youtube video on simple installation of a new belt wrapping it around the motor spindle and then threading the new belt over the drum in a counterclock wise fashion....it appears our belt is too short and may require some special tools to leverage the belt on..(ie like a bicycle intertube),,but am not sure if I simply have not tried the manual rotatation of the drum properly...Do you think I need a special tool or should I be able to hand wrap the new belt on?
ANSWER Hello Mike. The belt 134051000 is very tight to install on the units. You can roll it onto the pulley, but it requires a lot of force to do so. If you just try to roll it on there, you will think the belt is to short. Hope this helps.
