Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
You have a belt keeper/guard that is either missing, distorted, or not properly aligned with one of your pulleys. Your deck have two idler pulleys with belt keepers, and there are two metal spindle pulley covers that keep your belt from coming off your spindle pulleys. Check these parts, and check the belt keeper that is for your engine pulley.
