Question about Hitachi Vacuums
I couldn't find your specific model but this may be similiar to another that you have to position the new belt around the agitator (beater bar) on the bottom of the vacuum, replace the cover, and then turn the vac over and remove the TOP cover to lift the new belt up and place it on the motor shaft/pulley. The new belt may require some effort to pull it over the pulley.
Hope this helps.

If the V belt is loose with the handle down, then maybe the idler wheel under neath the belt isn't contacting the belt, may be jammed down, just push on it to see if it moves up and down. Belts don't last very long, you may want to replace both of them.

Need help installing belt on Hoover self propelled upright vacuum
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Ultra U6430-900 Wind Tunnel Bagged Upright. The best way to install the belt on a Hoover to replace one or both of the belts @ the same time for the best cleaning. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months for best results. There is a tool that looks like a screwdriver that has a right or left angle on the end that serves as a belt puller and to hook the belt(s) onto the brushroll 1st and then take your puller and then pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

There are two snaps underneath to release the bottom plate. Next remove the top cover by gently prying off the base with a flat screwdriver. this will expose the belt. Install the new belt on the roller nd then push through the hole to attach to the motor shaft. reinstall the cover and bottom plate.
