I have a Frigidaire washer model ATF8000FG1. The belt on the back of the unit keeps coming off due to the drive pulley getting loose. I tightened the allen head screw but it keeps working itself loose causing the drive pulley to wobble and the drive belt rubbing and eventually coming off. What's the best way to keep the idler pulley tight?

Wait at least 24 hours for it to cure and the only way to remove it is with heat.
