Just a SWAG. The way that looks, I'm not sure I'd want to have to replace the belt.
That's usually what causes the belt to come off. It's usually #6 or #5 in the diagram since they are behind the walls and harder to see. Check them closely (with a dental mirror if you have one) or slide your hand down under the pulleys to make sure the belt is completely on.
