Customer: replied 1 year ago.
as much as we can take off we know how to do it but it's so tight
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Remove any washing from the inside of the tub.

At the rear of the appliance; place the belt onto the motor drive shaft, then also onto the left side of the pulley wheel of the tub until the full capactity of the belt is taken-up.

Whilst holding the belt in this position, rotate the tub clockwise allowing the belt to follow.

The pulley wheel will pull the belt into position for you
