Either wrong belt or bearings very worn or collapsed so pulley is running out of true and throwing belt off. can also be caused by the bearing spider being broken

Maytag washer lat9416aaq belt slips in spin cycle put new belt on and springs

The motor is supossed to walk up the belt to let it slip enough so the pump can run and drain out the water before the drum spins at full speed( that's why it's spring mounted).
Check the pump belt, it should be snug but not tight, you should have some give when you squeeze the belt together, but it should not touch together. Don't use any belt dressing on it, it needs to slip. Make sure the washer is unpluged before you do anything.

I replaced both belts on my washer. Last night I smelled burning rubber. Today the cycle will fill, and spin yet will not agitate. What should I do ?

The pump belt has to be adjusted correctly or the drive belt will slip. If it already slipped enough to burn the new belt, you will probably need another drive belt.

Probably it wasn't fitted properly. make sure the belt is tight when fitted, and at least 2 groves from either side at the motor shaft.

Squeal that sounds like belt spippage

The motor slides back and forth so there is know way to tighten the belt.The new  belt is needed if your old one shows any ware or if has shiny look to it which would mean its been getting hot and slipping.
