I have a front-loading Frigidaire washer 417.39022890.

I am having a tough time reinstalling the belt. I would appreciate any tips.

I have attached a picture for reference.

Thanks in advance. Dirty laundry is fast piling up ...

If you can't hold the belt in place by hand, ziptie it onto the large pulley and turn it on.

Apologies but I do not understand. Ziptie the belt to the pulley I believe is the easy part. Once I have ziptied it, do I then turn the pulley so the rest of the belt catches?

Place the belt around the motor pulley first, then roll it on the large wash basket pulley while turning the wash basket pulley. If it doesn't roll on, you've got issues.
