Default trouble getting the belt on correctly

I replaced the washer pump but now I don't think the tensioner is in the right place as the washer does not spin out completely(still very damp clothes) and the pump does not want to shut off after the spin cycle is over.

Gary,
You'll need to recheck the belt installation and idler assembly. Here's some help:

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.

3. Align belt on motor pulley and tension pulley.
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,
Idler Lever and Pulley:
NOTE:
Lay motor on its side. Observe belt configuration around rear pump leg. Belt MUST encircle rear pump leg when reassembling.
2. Remove nut, washer, and bolt securing idler lever and pulley to motor mounting bracket.
3. Apply a light film of No. 03637P Lubricant to area of idler lever that makes contact with motor mounting bracket.

NOTE: DO NOT OVER LUBRICATE!
Excess lubricant can be thrown into pivot dome area during normal washer operation. Any lubricant on the pivot dome, base or friction ring will affect washer operation.

4. Reverse procedure to reassemble.
I'm sure you'll have it fixxed and running in no time.
