During a load of wash, I smelled burning rubber. Washer wasn't spinning. Took apart, saw slightly worn belt & replaced. Tested new belt, still no spin. I gave it a twirl, and it began to spin just fine. What part do I need to get it to START spinning? And how do I replace once I have the part? Lid lock seems to work fine.

Very much obliged,

Hello, my smelly friend. The symptoms you describe are consistent with having the belt tensioner pulley placed incorrectly. This would cause the belt to have insufficient tension to turn the transmission pulley from a dead stop. If you posted a photograph of your handiwork, I am certain that one of the many fine master appliantologists who frequent this venerable institution of higher learning would be pleased to review it for you.

Allahu Akbar!
