If you look at the old belt, you should be able to see the difference of the v-surface of the belt and the back of belt where no wear takes place. The complete belt should look like the unworn back side of belt.
The slipping belt is this machines clutch system. The motor can be running at full speed and only turning the spin basket at a slow speed until all water is drained out and then basket can come up to full spin speed.
DO NOT try to replace the belt with one from an auto parts store, you will have the same problem.
