I bought an nav5800aww used and had the same issue. Mine was due to the coupler that attaches the auger to the agitator being worn out. I fixed it by removing the auger by pulling it up off the agitator, and putting four small screws through the tabs so that the points of the screws were pointing out. When I replaced the auger, the screws held it in place. That fix lasted about a year, but the plastic eventually got torn up enough that it doesn't work any more. You can find a replacement part online pretty easily

I just did this today. You have to remove the motor. first start by removing the two hoses then remove the four 1/2 inch bolts that hold the motor/pump assembly. the wires are clippes to a bracket, pry that off removr the whole motor assemly with the bracket by pushing on the tub to manipulate it out. Then remove the three #25 torx screws that hold the pump to motor, remove the pump then route the belt onto the pulley around the inside pump mount put the motor back on the reinstall it the way you took it off. its not that bad (for the first time ever working on a wash machine). I hope you dont have the problem I do, the belt slips in the spin mode - that is probably why the belt failed in the first place I am still trying to find a solution to that. if you just have a failed belt, you will be just fine.

I ended up breaking the pump. I found that there is no real trick, it just gets stuck on sometimes. I worked on removing it very carefully for a couple hours but in the end the plastic cracked and needed replaced. The pump cost me $48 to replace and then the rest was easy

Use the correct sized belt!!
Loosen the Motor mounting Bolts. ( Do not take it off ) Now the motor assembly can be moved towards the opposite large pulley.
Replace the belt in this position and slide the motor to it's original position. You adjust it in such away so that, the belt is not too tight or loose!
