Yes, a new drive belt looks and measures smaller than the original,

And can be a hard or frustrating process.

Drive belt:
The drive belt (6 rib flat Poly-V) is used to transmit power
from the motor pulley to the tub. The belt is constructed
of a material that stretches which makes belt tension
adjustments unnecessary

It's easiest if you, install the belt on the motor pulley,
then "roll" it onto the drum pulley as you slowly turn the drum pulley.

Once the belt is on the pulley, turn the drum a few rotations and recheck the alignment of the belt and pulleys.

Good Luck,

Thanks for allowing to assist you,
