Sounds like the belt is slipping
Is your new belt the right one or is it the same length as the old worn one.
You might try spraying the belt with a belt dressing and that may work if its the belt slipping.
Another thought is your belt tightener working properly.
Just throwing out ideas to check.

I have a walk behind mower. The drive belt broke and I replaced it and now it wont pull itself. The wheels still spin if I lift it up but when I set it down it wont go anywhere

you must have a belt tensioner somewhere. Have a look near your belt pully or a idler pully that has an adjustment screw where you can tighten your belt to give grip. It appears the weight of the mower is causing the belt to slip hence it no moving because your belt /belts are slipping
