You need to kneel down on the right side of the mower deck, look forward and inside of the right blade pulley. There you will find the tension pulley, with a piece of metal sticking up out of the middle of the pulley. Slide the end of the spring over that post and put the clip in the hole at the end of it to retain the spring. If you have not already retained the cable at the back of the deck, make sure to do so. If you move your hand back from the tension pulley at the back of the deck is a post that the shielded part of the cable is attached to. Make sure when you put the cable into the slot that you bring the collar back to the post and then slide the clip in place.
Judging by the diagram the spring mounts under the armbrake, the Bolt (#52) goes through the circular spring. One end of the spring goes into one of the holes near the bolt on the armbrake and the other ( after providing tension by turning the spring ) must attach to a non moving part on the deck to be able to provide the required tension Look for a small turned up piece of metal with a notch in it on the housing.
Hope this helps
the idler pulley keeps tension on the belt itself, and is a complete unit,, it slides into a grove,, and once the belt is correctly installed ,, thats what holds it in place, heres a good reply from another question that may help you with pictures http://www.wikihow.com/Change-a-Clothes-Dryer-Belt
Make sure the idler arm with pulley is in the right location and then hook the spring into the idler arm bracket, then look for where the spring might have been attached on the frame of the machine within the limits of a stretched spring.

That spring will attach itself to just about anything available. So put some hand tension on the idler pulley of the tensioner, and make an arc with the end of the spring, and there should a tab or bolt or post that the spring could attach to.
You can verify your belt installation by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page, then locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under Special Features. Refer to Diagram E under the Maytag heading. If you say you have the belt installed correctly, make sure the tension spring is still installed. I hope this helps you.
Make sure the belt is properly routed. Often, there is a tensioner that 'adjusts' the belt. It is a wheel that is on a pivot with a spring attached to a fixed point. It may be located anywhere around the drum but is likely near the motor frame. Now, with access to the motor shaft, start the belt over the shaft in the direction of motor spin as much as you can. Try to turn by hand or grab the belt and pull along. ...if it does not work..put the belt over the motor pulley after pulling back on the tensioner. You can use a long screwdriver as a lever. No tensioner? There will be a method of adjusting the placement of the motor. Make sure the motor shaft comes out square to the belt.
