Hello Ragain. Here are the instructions from the manufacture to replace the belt. Hope this helps.
Motor and Mounting Bracket
1. Remove service access panel.


NOTE:
There will always be some water that will remain
in outer tub, before removing hoses from pump,
hoses must be pinched off or drained to prevent
water spillage.
2. Loosen hose clamps and remove hoses from pump
assembly.
3. Unhook idler spring from clip on front of the motor
mounting bracket.
NOTE:


Use care when releasing idler lever tension. If
idler spring is overstretched, washer operation
will be affected.
4. Reach in and around left side of motor and remove
belt off large drive pulley.
5. Disconnect wire harness from motor switch by
pressing down on locking tab on top of connection
block and at the same time, pull connection block
away from motor switch.
6. Remove bolts securing motor and mounting bracket

to lower outer tub flange and to weldment assembly.
7. Lift complete assembly out of washer.
NOTE:


Lay motor on its side. Observe belt
configuration around rear pump leg. Belt

MUST
encircle rear pump leg when reassembling.

8. Reverse procedure to reassemble.
Pump and Belt Removal
1. Remove motor, see “Motor and Mounting Bracket”
procedure.
2. Remove screws securing pump assembly to motor.
Reassembly of Pump and Belt
NOTE:


Install pump and belt together. Drive belt MUST
be replaced with belt No. 40053602 for one and
two speed models; or 40053601 for some two
speed models and three speed models (special
clutch-type belt) for proper washer operation.
Refer to Parts Manual for proper belt part
number.
1. Remove any corrosion or foreign material from motor
shaft.
2. Apply a thin film of No. 03637P lubricant to the end
and sides of motor shaft.
NOTE:


This lubricant helps keep moisture out of the
hub area and prevents corrosion.
3. Align belt on motor pulley and tension pulley as
illustrated.
4. Align pump impeller hub with motor shaft. Verify belt
encircles rear pump leg. Slide pump onto motor
shaft until legs touch the embosses on the motor
housing before securing.
NOTE:


Tighten screws to 35 inch-pounds maximum.
DO NOT overtighten screws!
5. Install motor and pump assembly into washer, see
“Motor and Mounting Bracket” procedure.
NOTE:


After installing motor and pump assembly in the
washer and all hoses have been secured, along
with reconnecting idler spring. Add at least one
quart of water to washtub to lubricate pump
seals. Running a pump without water will
damage the seals.

Check and see if the tub bearing is making the noise and if the tub is dragging in spin. You should hear a roaring sound in spin cycle, if the bearing is bad. If so, you will need to replace the tub bearing. Hope this helps.

Here are the instructions from the manufacture. Hope this helps.
Agitator
1. Open loading door.
2. Remove agitator by placing hands under agitator lip
and pull upward, if agitator is stuck or stubborn use
two agitator hooks, No. 254P4P, under bottom edge

of agitator.

NOTE:
Hooks must be positioned 180° from each other,
and must be placed under base of agitator near
agitator vane for greater stability. If hooks are
placed between the vane area, agitator damage

hand, will force agitator down onto drive bell,
allowing fingers on underside of agitator to lock
under bottom edge of drive bell.
