If its either the Clutch or Transmission going out I'm probably better off just buying a new washer. I was hoping to save money by repairing, and the belt was within acceptable financial loss range. Thanks for the suggestions and info, at least I learned a little about how Washing machines work. =)

post YouTube video ?
Is that the correct Belt ?


Here is a short video showing whats going on with the belt and pullys:



First part is me moving the pullys with belt attached, moves as it should and transmission moves along with the inner drum. Second part is super short, but it shows how the transmission pully doesn't spin, just jerks, and the motor pully moves properly but the belt is slipping and catching at the same time. It is not hard to move the transmission pully.

I did research before buying the belt, and the one i got was listed on multiple websites with the same part number as being the correct replacement part. it fits nicely on the pullys. Is there some way to tighten the belt? I fed the belt on by turning the pullys and not disassembling anything.

could just have a bad belt. Does the motor run during the wash cycle but the belt just slips then too?

Really need to remove the belt and turn both the motor and transmission pulleys to ensure they're
not locked up.


The small motor pulley should turn freely in both directions. The larger transmission pulley
should turn freely in one diretion and have some resistance in the opposite direction as the
inner tub begins to turn.

Let us know what you find.


The belt does just slip during the wash cycle as well. The small motor pulley turns freely in both directions and the larger transmission pulley turns freely in one direction and with some resistance in the opposite as you said they should; I changed the belt with a new one and it was tighter, but when turned on the drum still does not spin and does the same thing, although with less obvious slipping on the motor pulley, didn't want to run it for long for fear of ruining the new belt, but its definitely LOUDER and more 'violent' in its attempt to spin after the belt installation.
