Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to replace the belt for your washer yourself.

  • You will need to locate and remove the two screws that secure the lower front access panel on the front of the washer.

  • You will need to remove the motor and pump assembly to replace the drive belt.

I hve given you two images that illustrate the process of changing the belt.

I hope this information will assist you in changing the belt. If you need more help please reply and I will be glad to help you further.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for the update on the pump removal from the motor. If you have the screws that hold the pump to the motor then I would suggest that you use a large flat blade screwdriver to reach in to where the pump impeller hub slides onto the motor shaft and pry up on the pump impeller right at the motor shaft to get it to release from the shaft. You may have to move around the motor shaft to get to work the pump impeller off the shaft. Let me know how it went. Sam A.
