Both belts appear to be in good condition and there is no obvious buildup of belt residue around any pulley. The belt between the motor and agitator/drum can be moved by hand so the agitator shaft does not appear to be seized up. It takes considerable force to move the inside drum by hand.
Would this be a dreaded transmission problem? Is the machine ready to junk? It has worked flawlessly until now. There does not appear to be any bunched up socks, towels etc jammed at the top of the drums.

I have not removed the basket as yet. It appears that a special wrench would make the removal easier but can other more common tools do the job without wrecking anything? Does removal of the basket destroy the concrete ballast ring? I now strongly suspect that there could be an object preventing the basket from spinning since the last few loads washed before the problem occurred were very dirty rags that may have had some grit stuck to them despite shaking them out before washing.
