Question [HELP!] Amana washer WILL agitate but NOT spin

I have an Amana model #ALW880QAW that agitates fine but when it tries to go into spin mode the motor runs extremely fast but the drum does not spin. It did this until it wore through the drive belt. I replaced the belt (thanks to help form this forum ) but I'm still at the same place I was before.

If I try to manually spin the drum from the top it feels like it locks up before it even turns 1 revolution.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. It took me hours to replace the belt and I don't want this machine to get the best of me and make me call the repair man.

Don't know your machine well but there is a brake assy above transmission that is prone to trouble. here is a link to your machine
Look back about a month in these post there is something more on this there.
