I would suspect your correct, but first check the belt and make sure the belt tightens for spin. Its possible the the belt is too glazed to grip the pulley to spin. The other thing is noise, this is common for this model, its a dry brake system like a car, brake dust collects in the drum and causes this, if you change this is comes back, same for if you clean it. Aaron, remove the front panel, check the large center pulley, turn one way to release the brake and the other to wash. Check this first before changing anything. Good Luck
I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is
trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually
this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See
my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:
the brake it the drum directly above the transmission pulley it is not intergrated into the trans. in my almost 30 years of repairs in that old and very reliable machine i would find where a article of clothing and floated over the inner tub and has wedged itsefl between the inner and outer tub, their is enough clerance between the tub and tub cover where you could get finger into it and run it around the tub and feel if a piece of clothing is caught. if that isnt the problem then the tub bearing is ceased up and would require repalcing it and the tub seal
sounds like the motor bushes have badly worn just check or replace them,sometimes they just need taking out and give them a flick with your finger to get rid of the carbon dust build up,put them back on if they are long enough as they really should be showing a good quarter of an inch for it to function rite.
Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
