how do i replace the drive belt
ANSWER John, "Remove the 4 Phillips-head screws from the cabinet rear cover. Pull the cover outward from the middle. Remove the belt by turning the tub drive pulley and rolling the belt off the pulley. Note: The belt is elastic and is designed to be removed and installed in this manner."
The belt will seem to be "too small" but it is not. You'll want to align and hold the belt on the motor drive pulley, and install the belt on the drum pulley from bottom left, "walk" it onto the pulley as far as possible, then slowly turn the drum pulley clockwise. It make take a couple of tries to get it on the pulley, then once on, turn the drum pulley several revolutions so the belt aligns properly on the pulley. Be careful when "rolling" the belt on the pulley, don't let your fingers get "pinched" between the belt and pulley.
