I got a new belt and it is to loose.
Answer Hello Lee. Make sure the belt is behind the idler pulley and it is putting the tension on the belt. Also, washer belts are suppose to slip for the unit to work properly. It should not be super tight. Thanks.
What belt do I need for a Whirlpool Top Load Washer model # LA5558XSWO
Answer Hello Ed. Your model is a direct drive model and does not have a belt. Instead it uses a motor coupler part# 285753A. There is a video on that part page that should help.
