This is joyce
sounds like the belt needs to be tighter. sounds like its slipping on pully. that may be why its not spinning correctly.

Maytag washer MAV208DAWW does not spin out the water completely from clothes after spin cycle.

do you smell anything burning or a burning oder,your belt could be glazed from over loading the washer and now the belt is slipping,also check the drain hose for kinks making for a slow drain,do you hear any noises when draining like something could be stuck in the pump, maybe to much detergent and it's oversudsing, or you could have a bad trainy,check the belt first belt part number is 21352320 and it's around 25 bucks

Wash cycle is slow and makes slipping sound

If there are 2 belts, change them both. one can get damaged and not allow the other to work right.

Heavy Duty Speed Queen top loader, HA 4011-3062, with a slow spin

I have a related problem and I just learned on the net that the Vbelt is supposed to slip in "idle" mode while the water pump will do more work.
It is also supposed to slip slightly while speeding the spinning up so as to not cause motor overload.A kind of half clutch function that allows for slipping. This slipping is controlled by the tensioner.

My guess is that your machine's v belt slips too much and thus does not spin fast enough. You replaced the belts, I would look at the tensioner now.
