It is possible that the belt has stretched, but more likely the pulley is defective.

Try replacing both the belt and the pulley assembly and see if that does not solve the problem.

When I install the belt. If I center it on the pulley it rides on the outer most edge of the motor pulley grooves.

I can see if the belt stretched but how does the pulley go bad it's aluminum . Are there any bearings that allow the belt not to line up. Is there any adjustment on the motor to align the pulleys. Thanks for your help!

Yes to both points. Aluminum as you know can easily warp and it only takes a few mm of warp to throw it off and let the belt come off.

Here is a link to the service manual for your model.

You may have to replace the pulley on spec because the problem may be so small that it is not visible to the naked eye.

Thanks for your help. I will look at the service manual. I will order a pulley and belt and hopefully that takes care of the problem. I have been scratching my head on this one, because the pulley looks just fine. Thanks for everything.
