... unit agitates fine
... transmission with belt hooked up and motor turn by hand when this happens

1) wouldn't b e a bad Motor if it Agitated OK (unless it now is damaged)
2) ? ? ? what ? ? ?

does is Spin at all or it's locked-up ?
yes, may be something between the Basket and Tub
no,may be a bad Timer

Ok, the problem is not the motor.

You either have articles of clothing or other foreign objects stuck between the wash basket and the outer tub, a bad transmission, a seized idler pulley, or a bad tub bearing and seal.

Try spinning the wash basket by hand. It should only turn freely counterclockwise by hand . If it is hard to turn by hand, then that's your problem. If it turns freely clockwise, you definitely have a bad transmission.
