On the side of the deck there is a metal rod running along between the tires. Push it back then pull it forward when it releases from the catch it will move the pulley and release the belt. Hope you can figure it out I believe it is on the side with the brake pedal.

Similar thing happened to me . There is a half moon "key" that slides into a groove in the axle. Sounds like that fell out when you took off the wheel. Look around where you took the wheel off to see if you can find it. If not they're not very expensive at a repair shop. I did not know this & I took in in to the shop. Luckily they only charged me for the part.

there are several belt guards that you will need to loosen then the belt will slip right on. having someone hold the clutch will make it easier, and the belt diagram should be on the deck. If not, these are common mowers, so a search for this or a friends/neighbors mower may hold the answer. Be sure to re tighten all guards or your belt will pop off and wear out very fast against these metal parts

underneath by the right side tire turn in the adjustment nuts on the brake rod. if brake is bad the disk will have to be replaced see a manual.
