Ok - so I have the new belt
[part # 902 115 pump belt for Maytag] for my ancient Maytag (thanks) but it is soooo tight. Any tips/ video for getting it installed? Do I start from the back and try to pull it to the motor?
Answer DZ, It's easiest to leave the belt dry, and slip the belt onto the motor pulley and stretch it onto the pump pulley, there's slightly more room to work with. Once the belt is on both pulleys and you've rotated the belt a couple of times, then apply all the silicone grease to the belt and rotate the belt by hand. Put the kickplate in position and turn the dishwasher to a drain cycle so the lubricant can be evenly distributed.
