My belt has been falling off and now it has snapped. When I put the belt back on the pulley, before it snapped, it seemed to track toward the tub and not stay in line. I noticed that the belt has ridges that fit with the motor pulley and the tub pulley has no ridges. Also, I checked the tub pulley and motor pulley, both seem to be firmly attached. Other than the obvious need for a new belt, is there anything I can do to get this belt to track properly so I do not have to continuously replace it? This will be the second belt this washer has eaten in two years.
ANSWER Hi. Make sure the motor and the main pulley both are mounted tight with absolutely no slop. After you install the belt part # W10388414, look down at the belt to see if the belt is riding in the center of the motor pulley and the large main pulley. Rotate them a few times to insure that the belt still rides on the pulleys together and adjust as necessary. Thank You.
