hi all just seeing if you would change the belt tightness when you change the belt my washer has never had it changed from the factory and when i put the new OEM belt on it it seems tighter than it should be.
Iam using the old belt for now not worn just 7 years old.
i noticed with the new belt on you hear more motor noise via the tub.
and the clutch seems to get hot during spin just put a new clutch in to replace the very rusty worn to the point you could stop the tub from turning with a thumb on it with a new one.
i just don't want to put the new belt on the washer and kill the new clutch.
with the new belt being factory should the tightness be changed or left factory and let it stretch with time and use?
