Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
I was working on it yesterday afternoon, terrible grease, took me hours to get my hands clean, my point is I cannot go back and look, but from what I remember, the actual pully on the motor is very small and then the belt goes to a pulley on the agitator that looks like the one you are describing. The pully on the motor is approx. 4" in diameter, the other pully is approx. 8" to 12" in diameter. Hope that helps..
Nope, just two, the small pully on the end of the motor and the larger pully on the agitator.
I removed the front of the washer and I could see the electrical motor and part of the belt but decided to pull the bottom off to get a better look. So to answer you I took the front off and I could see the pulley/belt/motor but not all that good to see the agitator, so then I pulled off the bottom. It is one belt.
Wish I were more helpful Chas...

I cannot find the model or serial number, at least I did not see it and I had the machine apart. Any idea where the model number would be located?
click this link it shows you where to check , just click on find my model # XXXXX to search. http://www.repairclinic.com/Repair-Help
I found it:
Model #: YBXR1060V1WW
Serial #: FT112240T
I pulled it, I punched it, I yanked it, I knocked it back and forth and it will not budge!!! The only thing I did not do is pry it but I think the plastic fins may break, any suggestions?
Sorry Bryan, I spent an hour trying to get that off, no luck, without a special tool it is doubtful it will come off, however with that said, I just looked it over one more time, when I power it up the motor runs good, it is spinning great but tyhe small pulley is not letting the belt turn it, you can turn the belt slightly by hand. I think the problem is in the end of motor nut and the pulley itself??? How is the pulley attached to the motor? The small pulley not the washer larger pulley? Somehow I think the cotter pin or whatever they use to atach the motor/pulley together is broken or faulty.
It is the gold pulley at the bottom of the motor.
Hi again Bryan, sorry this is taking so long, I realize your time is pretty valuable, but I have to make a decision, kill this machine and go buy another or get it fixed. The fixing requires a "Let's try this and see if it works" type of problem.. anyway two more things.. a. the motor is turning in one dorection, the belt of course is not turning at all i.e. the pully is not turning, and number two, how do you get this belt off?
