Huebsch (Amana) Washer Spins, but hardly Agitates

Here is a video I posted. The clothes are barely moving back and forth, they are not getting clean and the machine is not being overloaded. The agitator should work better to move the clothes around the drum.

I believe these have a drive bell similar to GE and maybe it is stripped out. Seems to be too even of a movement back and forth to be that problem though. Almost looks like it's in a very slow/delicate agitate cycle but again seems way to slow for that also.
It's not a problem with the motor and if it spins good and strong it's not a problem with the belt, agitate takes very little effort to turn the drive pulley, if the belt were loose or improperly tensioned you wouldn't be getting a good spin.
Remove the belt from the transmission pulley and turn the transmission pulley by hand in the agitate direction. It should turn very easily with hardly any resistance at all and the agitator should move back and forth, have someone watch what the agitator is doing while you turn the transmission pulley. If it's hard to turn then something in the transmission is binding up, (possibly agitator shaft seals gone bad and let water into the transmission and gummed up the agitator output shaft).
