Ok give me just one moment while I look that up for you.
I know this is not your unit at all but is this what you are trying to do? Just so I have a better idea?
Place the dryer face down placing a support between the top of the door and the control panel so the door nor the panel supports the weight of the drier.Remove the back panel and place to the side, careful not to stress any of the wiring or connections, leave the drum in position check it correctly located BEFORE fitting the new belt. Fit the new belt around the drum, (micro groves face the drum smooth side out)using masking tape or sim tape the the belt to the drum in a few locations in the position it will normally run (these are temporary) leaving the spare in a loop near to the motor & jockey pulleys. Hold the jockey pulleys apart with a chock ie. a piece of wood or plastic pipe etc that can be removed easily. hold the loop of belt in one hand and feed it on to the motor pulley while holding it in position release the temporary chock from the jockey pulleys these will hold the belt in position, remove the masking tape. CHECK THE WIRING AND CONNECTIONS ARE CLEAR OF THE FRAME ESPECIALLY THE ELEMENT CONNECTIONS AND ALL EARTHS ARE SECURE. Refit the back cover,
I hope this is what you are looking for if not please do not rate negatively I can opt out and open this up to other experts.

Ok one more moment let me check something for you.
After installing the belt around the drum, drive pulley and tension wheel, I align the front end of the drum with the front of the cabinet and install the tension spring. Then I hand wind the motor shaft to settle things in place also make sure you have the belt around the drum aligned (in the same plane) as closely as you can with the drive pulley and tensioning wheel. I think this is partially achieved by placing the belt as close to that position as possible before lining up the front end of the drum with the cabinet opening, and then turning the drum from the front (through the open door) very slowly clockwise (the direction of its normal rotation) to give the belt "time" to align itself fully with the smaller pulleys.
Here is a little more information if it helps
There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier.
Does that help?
I am sadly unsure of what the problem could be then. Other than maybe a spring or something is missing. I certainly gave it my best shot though. Would you like me to opt out and see if anyone else has any ideas on this matter?
I just have one last question before I leave you is there a possibility it is missing a spring? I am not sure if you took the original one off if you noticed if there was one of two springs.
It certainly sounds to me like its missing a spring because from my understanding there should be one at the top and one at the bottom. So I am definitely at a loss since that is not what you are seeing unfortunately I really wanted to be the one to help you figure this out. I will open this up. Have a good night.
