    Check the place where the arm that has the idler that engages the blades(tensions the belt) pivots. I would bet that you will fing a rusty shoulder bushig that needs cleaning. Common problem and solution on those machines.
    Note: washing deck is not advised as it causes the above problem as well as bearing problems.
