Cool Maytag Atlantis Not Spinning

I have a three year old Atlantis that just stopped spinning. I checked the belt underneath and it appeared a little slack (possible problem). I easily removed the belt, then attempted to spin the machine by hand turning the center belt pulley. It spun the basket about a quarter turn, then the pulley just kept turning with no spinning. I'm not sure if turning the basket by hand is possible but shouldn't turning the pulley spin the basket or could it just be a slack belt?

Hi heytc, and welcome to DIY Forums,
- the pulley under the drum with the drive belt contains a brake package. This sounds as if the brake is sticking on. The brake package is apparently not repairable, but is replaceable .

Do it Right - Do it once.
