Many times this problem is caused by either a worn pulley, or a misaligned, or missing belt guard / keeper.

It could be bent or needs to be closer to your pulley, to prevent your belt from having enough space, to slip up between your pulley and your belt guard.
You and I need to determine which pulley your belt is actually coming off of.
Two (2) Idler Pulleys
One (1) Transmission Pulley
And your Engine Pulley

Double check the clearance between each of your pulleys and their belt guards. Check to see if any of your pulleys are wobbling. Also, make sure your transmission bolts and support brackets, are all tight. We can continue from here. Thanks again!
Sometimes your belt can be difficult to remove after it wedges under your transmission pulley. After you get it back onto your pulley, try getting your belt guard closer to your pulley. Also, check to see if your belt is worn.
