Hello All!

I'm trying to replace the drive belt on an Amana washing Machine - model number 

LW8363W2

and am having trouble mounting the belt onto the pulleys.  I can get it onto the motor pulley and around the tensioner, but am unable to get it up and onto the large pulley which drives the tub.  Can someone please explain the best way to mount the belt or recommend a video?
It is also possible that the tensioner pulley needs to be adjusted.  It appears to be out of place and causing the belt to rub on itself, but I thought that might self correct when the belt is mounted.
Thank you  
Steven

Maybe try this video.. there are more of these out there, I just grabbed this one.. if I recall, you have to remove the pump so you can install the belt around the pump pulley as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbC6lK2yTXM
