Hi, I'm having difficulty finding a compatible drive belt for an old (probably more that 20 years old) washing machine. PLease see attached photo of the old Dayco 1100 J5 belt.

Measuring the width of the ribbed side of the belt, it looks like 12 mm, so basically 1100 mm long and (apprpx) 12mm wide,and I think the J5 refers to 5 ribs (4 valleys between each rib).
Would you know if this belt on Amazon would be compatible?

I always start with a local auto parts store — I bring in the belt and they almost always can find something compatible...

Yes, 1100 is the length of the belt, J5 means 5 ribs.

the one in your amazon link is the same but more expensive...

buena suerte.
