My Repair & Advice
I ordered the replacement belt and when it arrived i was CERTAIN that is was the wrong size. It was at least 1-1/2 inches shorter than the broken one, even accounting for stretching over the years of use, I didnt see anyway it would go on. I sent an email to AppliancePartsPros telling them I was sure they sent me the wrong one, they responded very quickly telling me that they were sure it was the right belt, but would be happy to send me a new belt, just provide them with more info on my dishwasher. Well I decided to try it one more time, & it is the right belt. We put it in very hot water for a few minutes, then stretched it multiple times by looping it over our feet and pulling up on it. We were able to get the belt on and the dishwasher works!!!!
