My washer is making a rubbing sound when its in agitation mode. Could this be the belt or something more?
Answer Hello Cameron. You need to check and see if the motor mount is rubbing the base. If so, the top apron is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
How do you put on the new belt? Having a hard time.
Answer Hello Chester. These are hard to do. The best way is to remove the complete assembly from the cabinet and then flip it over to install the belt. Then you start the belt onto the small motor pulley and roll it onto the large pulley on the unit. These are very tight and will slip off and you will have to start over again. But once you get it on there, it is there and wont slip off.
I bought a belt with the number 175D5131P001 located on the belt, and lets just say it doesnt fit on pulley all the way. I believe I need a bigger size, would you recommend trying a bigger size?
Answer Hello Melissa. Based on the model number you provided, WH01X10302 is the correct belt. You will need to make sure you are installing it correctly on the unit. Also, the belt is very tight on the two pulleys. Hope this helps.
What is the circumference of the belt? I think I may have purchased the wrong belt.
Answer Hello Rhonda! The belt part number WH01X10302 is a 6 rib belt. We do not have any other information used on this part. We will need your appliance model number to verify the correct belt for your appliance. Thanks!
