Did you buy the belt from an auto parts store by just matching up with length of old belt? If this is what you did, this is your problem.

This machine requires a special cloth coated belt so that it give the correct clutching action, (slips until water is all drained before bringing tub to full spin speed).

If you installed a regular auto belt the rubber belt will grip to tight and with a full load of water overload the motor for too long tripping your circuit breaker or the thermal overload in the motor.

Here's the belt you should have installed: Part# 27001007 CLICK HERE
