My washing macine needs new belt, I verified part number online (WHO1X10302) and it crosses to WH01X10353. So i ordered it and when it arrived I went to put it back on and in my eyes its no where close to fitting. It wont even go around the absurdly large pulley let alone up to the drive shaft. So i called my supplier and they confirmed its the right belt. They said it requires a special tool to install, but do they make a belt stretching tool and can a belt be stretched that far. Taking off the motor wouldnt matter, at least thats what it looks like since it wont even go around the pulley. I cant get any clarification on this "special tool" and well, I have no where else to turn....Please Help!!

I think the only "special tool" you'll need is a wrench so you can loosen the 4 motor mounting nuts and slide the motor back. Place the belt on the pulley and then slide motor forward and retighten the nuts.

Hmmm.  I wonder what would happen if you installed a WH1X2026 belt.

I was kind of thinking the same thing, (that's the only belt I've know the G.E. washers to use).

So looked it up and the numbers Scuba_Steve has is correct, original part# WH01X10302 which subs to WH1X10353 on some sites. I didn't find any pictures or sizes to see how it is different from the wh1x2026.

I've never seen one of these NEW BREED of G.E. Machines, I wonder how they're going to hold up.

It appears from some pictures I found that the belt is a multi-rib 1/2" to 3/4" wide belt like front loaders use and there is a tool on the parts list called "Belt installer tool WX05X10102", (I couldn't find any pictures of it either).

Most likely you cound install this belt just like a front loader. Get the belt around the small motor pulley and then ride it up onto the larger pulley while having someone else help to keep the belt in the center of the motor pulley. This is most likely going to be much harder than on a front loader becuase it's going to be harder to get to the transmission pulley and turn it.

From a question on another board about this model of washer it appears G.E. has done away with there failure prone transmission and are now calling this unit a direct drive and say the transmission doesn't use any gears?

The motor is called a two speed motor and inverter kit on the parts list, so it sounds like they may be using a design similar to a front loader in the top load G.E.

Very interesting!!!!!

Here's a picture of the drive mech:

Yes you have the correct part and it will fit. The only special tool you need is a cable tie (zip tie). just put belt in the tranny pulley groove and secure it with a cable tie. Put the belt around the motor pulley, then all you have too do is rotate the tranny pulley until the belt gets on track. You do not have to loosen anything. Then cut off the cable tie and your all set.

I took a class on this washer, they are having a good bit of trouble with part # 320 on previous post.

Thank you for all you help on this issue, but I still have one big problem. The belt I have literally wont even go around the pulley (number 725 on diagram) let alone up and to the drive shaft. I will look into the other belt you suggested and see if that one is a better fit. I may be looking at this thing all wrong but it appears to me at least that the belt has to go around (number 725 and to the motor drive shaft) but the belt wont even stretch to fit around the pulley? Sorry if i am being redundant but everyone is saying this is right belt, but I see no way for it to work.

   The belt I mentioned is for the old style and older style GE washers.  I have not had the pleasure of doing battle with your model yet.  Thanks bill for the diagram Appl.tech for the belt installation tip.

The old belt 2026 will not work. To install the belt you have to put it around the motor pulley first, then attach the belt with a wire tie to the tranny pulley. From this point, you just have to use bruit strength to rotate the tranny pulley so the belt will go on.

Im also experiencing this machine for the first time.  The motor inverter flashes twice pointing to a belt slipping.  Washer wont spin or agitate.  Tech sheet states on 2,4,6,7,8 flashes, if no error found, replace motor.  It spun out 1 time(with new motor) and now wont work again.  Control, lid switch, and pressure switch are all good.  This to me only leaves this mode shifter appl.tech was talking about. Any suggestions?
