It sounds like the blade is not going through the guides properly if the blade is being pushed away from the wood.
Your blade is facing and moving the right direction, I am assuming.

Open the side cover and inspect the blade path and blade tension. Rotate the blade by hand looking for interference at any point. Make sure the drive pulley is not slipping on the shaft and that the belt is not loose or badly worn. Make sure the two large drums that carry the blade turn easily (dry bearing?). Does the motor slow down? Are the drum rim surfaces (rubber) in good shape? If the tension device is at limit, but not tightening the blade, the blade may be too long.

Check and see if one of the guides is out of alignment or if the blade is worn. Either one can cause the problem since you already checked the tension and guides. If the guides are worn they won't hold the blade true.
