There is no adjustment provided for lining up the pulleys.
If it comes off then there are a couple of reasons that come to mind,the belt is too slack, the belt is worn,the drum is out of alignment with the motor pulley, caused by worn drum bearings, the motor is loose, a loose drum pulley, or you are not lining the belt up properly, overloading can also throw the belt off.
Hope this helps.
Plz leave feedback.

SOURCE: My WF000 drum has stopped
The drum should spin freely with the belt off, there should be no resistance, if there is, then it could be main bearing problem, or somethig stuck between inner and outer drum.
