Most washing machines built in the last 15 years are direct drive, so they do not have belts. When it stops spinning it usually is the coupler between the motor and the water pump!
People can order parts at Sears Direct.Com they will need to know the make and model, usually located inside the lid on a riveted tag. It saves a lot of money. I only paid $15.00, an hour, and a little patience.

This is true. My husband just replaced the coupling on our washer. The replacement part is stronger and a better quality than the original. He bought the coupling for $7 on eBay. Sears wanted $20. (12/20/2009)
