    Default Washer Machine Drive Belt Replacement

    Model Number: 110.82383100
    Brand: Sears Kenmore

    I need to replace the drive belt in my Kenmore Model# 110 82383100 Washer Machine. I have the belt, but have never done this before. Can anyone give me at least a general idea of how to do this? Thanks in advance.

    No worries, that happened to me many times in the 1980's when I first started changing the belts on these models.

    Well, I got the belt on. Unfortunately, the belt breaking must have coincided with another problem. The washer does everything but spin for the spin cycle at the end. Any ideas?

    And it's not the lid switch. Could this be something to do with the transmission, or gears?

    Eh, I'm getting close to giving up on what I can do with this thing. It's not the wig wag. Everything according to what you gave me there is fine, so I'm guessing it's probably something beyond my repair capability. In your opinion, is this thing worth paying someone to repair, or should I just buy a new(used) one?
