Motor locks up when the washer tries to spin opposite direction to agitate

When rotated on the opposite direction to agitate the main pulley below the drum releases the brake in order to spin, remove the pulley and lower plastic components and check condition, when they become worn the brake is not released properly hence no rotation.

My washer will wash and rinse the clothes, but won't spin. what is the problem?

Sounds like the Thrust washer problem to me. I believe this to be basically a Maytag single belt washer. Your symtoms sounds to me like the brake package is is not releasing the tub. Their is a cam riser built into the main drive pulley on these washers. The motor runs in one direction for wash and rinse and another direction for spin and pump out. In the spin direction the brake is released and the drum can rotate. With time the main drive pulley wears out. A new pulley and washers comes in a kit to fix the problem. More here

Top load washer Admiral # AAV7000AWW

I would replace the belt part # 21352320 which cost about 20 bucks. Tilt the machine back when off and empty and look for a glazed belt with maybe some cracking and wear.
