I have Cloth washer, Amana model no.LW4303, purchased in 1993
Friday I found washer humming but working. found broken belt.
On Saturday, Replaced Belt and Pump. Pump was Ok but could not get disconnected to put belt in and I had to break pump.
Saturday turn on washer. It started. water came in. aggagtor came on. pump was draining . I smelled rubber burning.
Washer was not spinning. As I was waching. new belt broke off.
Belt was burned
Request your help
Yes Belt was put on properly. It was on at motor pully, idle pully and washer pully
Yes I can spin the tub by hand ( tub is empty and belt is off)
Do you suppose :
Belt was too tight ? or
tub does not get connected to the wheel so it can spin?
