Issues Fitting Washer Belt

Good afternoon. I've been having problems trying to re-install a belt that came off earlier today. I have looked at the repair help page and numerous youtube videos but I am still having trouble, this might end up being a silly thing that I am just overlooking but I am lost for the time being.

The problem is that the motor shaft and the drum pulley do not align with each other, so when I put the belt on and start rotating the drum pulley the belt will eventually slip off. Now I have checked and the drum pulley seems tight, it does not rattle nor does it move more than what seems like the regular movement necessary for it to spin. I'll attach a couple photos and a video, hopefully that helps. The washing machine brand is a ProLine Logic, I'll also attach an image in case that helps.IMG_20200419_204213.thumb.jpg.29bde02c9ed19ae0a2c2d4c42bf9663c.jpg

Any help will be much appreciated,

Thank you in advance.

Hello there. Sometimes the grooves on the motor pulley are much deeper than necessary and the belt has to be put on further back or further forward in order to align. But if the pulley grooves are just the width of the drive belt and that won't be relevant. If the pulley and motor are out of line then there must be a problem with one of them. Neither the motor has a broken or loose fixing arm or the drum has playing it due to worn bearings or a worn pulley. I have written about all the possible causes of the washing machine drum drive belt coming off in my article here Drive belt keeps coming off
