Washing machine would not agitate

My Repair & Advice
Looked it up in "How Everything Works in Your Home and What to Do when it Doesn't", after hearing a service call plus part would be $150. Checked to see if mine was an 'easy access belt' washer by design (it was,) so I ordered the belt. It arrived in 2 days, and came with the manufacturer's instructions for doing the repair. Putting the belt on was really quick, but two years of sitting unused had stiffened up parts of the mechanism, and my dear neighbor added some belt dressing to the belt to allow it to work harder to get the machine humming once more. We ran several loads through after that and, voila!, it was fixed for $22. I am a most happy camper!
