When you say it won't spin, does that mean if you load it up, it stops spinning altogether (no motor sound)? Or does the motor keep running but the drum ain't tumblin'?

Did you check to see if the idler pulley turned free?

The motor runs, but if you put more than just a few articles of clothing in it, it is too heavy to continue to run. It heats and runs fine, but it tries to spin and then won't with more than a few clothes in it.

How about this...

Get a new belt and a new idler pulley. Before you install them, clean the outside of the drum to remove any grease, oil, dirt, ect.. that may be on the drum. Then put some grease on the ball that the drum turns on (rear bearing).

This should get you back in the game.
