You have two (2) Transaxle pulleys and two (2) Idler pulleys.

Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 6 months ago

First, check to see if both idler pulleys are spinning freely, without wobbling, or showing signs of a partially seized bearing.

Check for excessive wear inside your V-Idler pulley, that could be allowing your belt to fit deeper than usual.

Also, check both transaxle pulleys for wear and to see if they spin as they should, without excessive resistance from a worn/partially seizing bearing.
