Belts do not come off when they get wet. You probably have a bad pulley. It is often the idler pulley on the tensioner assembly that goes bad. If so, they can be replaced for about $20 iirc. With the belt off, grab hold of all the pulleys and see which one (if any) wiggles. Sight down the pulleys and see if any are out of line. Replace the bad pulley (or component) and your belt will stay on.

I thought you just put new pulley on? Your tensioner might be shot. Can you get a picture of it with the belt on to see where the little arrow points to on the tensioner? I still have that one if you want it
