Grab the belt and move it in either direction about how much can you move it,unplug the washer before you do this?
Alls you need to do is to put a new belt on and you will be fine. The motor is suppose to be loose like that and not tight in one spot, the clunk you hear is the clutch kicking in. The washer agitates in one direction and spins in the other direction.
