Hi! I just had to replace the belt on my GE washer - there was NO WAY it was going to go on w/ out some special tool. But then I had the bright idea to heat up the belt in near-boiling water. Then we were able to put it on as per the instructions above (hold in place around motor spindle, and turn it onto the large agitator wheel CW like you would a bicycle chain). Worked beautifully once the rubber was stretchier!! Then finally, we edged it into place on both the large wheel and the spindle. Walah!
