It can be due to problems faced by poor alignment of the motor, pulley and shaft. Also it can be due to worn belt or tight spindle that makes the belt slip over. check the free movement of the spindle and pulley , if not the assembly must be reset.

Keeps throwing belt

Check the pulley on the back of the basket to see if it is loose or the center key is worn out.

Makes clunking sounds & throws belt off pulley.

I think you have the answer. I suspect it will be the bearings that have seized up. Or possibly the spyder / drum axle broken

Belt comes off

maybe not, is the belt condition good, if so check for any wobble on the pulley, you may have worn drum bearings, this will cause the large pulley to wobble and throw the belt when it spins, also you can check the belt for being tight, it should be fairly tight but not tight enough to cause it to snap, if loose there should be adjustment at the motor end on the motor housing, all of this is assuming this is not a brand new belt, if so have you bought the right one?
