Hi, you may have more than one problem. There should be one belt from the mower deck going to the electric clutch pulley which is on the engine shaft. On the shaft there are two pulleys, one belt comes from the mower deck, and the other comes from the transaxle pulley. check to see if your belts are in the right areas.
If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

If idler is in tact and spring attached, it is likely that the belt isn't routed properly. If you try to route the rear-most portion of the belt around the idler, it will be loose. You must route the front-most portion of the belt around the center blade pully and then around the idler. Just Google "MTD 46 inch deck diagram" and you will go to a Parts Tree site with the proper diagram showing routing.

There should be a diagram on the mower deck itself usually on top of the deck on either side of the mower, and sometimes on the front. Look for this decal and it should give you the proper diagram.
Let me know if you find it, if not, I will try to locate a diagram for you.
