maytag washer will not spin

I have a maytag atlantis mav7200 .The machine runs well with the exception of the spin cycle.
When there is no load it spins fine but when there is anything at all in the drum it starts to spin then stops. The belt turns the pulley but not the drum and there does not seem to be any slipping on the pulley.

Q Is there another belt that I do not KNow about?

Q If so how do you remove the front cover to inspect?

Any info would be great!

correction

finally removed front cover of machine. I then put a load in and watched the machine does not agitate or spin. The belt below spins the pulley and pumps the water out of the machine. When I removed all of the clothes it spins fine just not with any weight in the drum.

thanks in advance

Ya I have checked the maytag site no real help. I pretty sure i figured out the problem. I was told its the pulley and cam are shot. I will see if this fixes my problem.
