Did you try to turn the tub when you had the transmission out?

With the transmission out, take hold of the white plastic brake release cam lever and turn it to see it the brake releases and try to turn it from there.

When you turn the cam to release the brake the tub will drop down to the bottom of the outer tub, about 1/2" to 3/4", if it doesn't try to drop then there is something stuck between the spin basket and outer tub.

When you try to turn it by hand keep the brake/basket drive assembly pushed up so the spin basket won't be rubbing on the bottom of the outer tub and stopping it from turning, it would help to have a helper turn the spin basket from the top while you hold the brake release to make sure nothing is binding up.

Do you have digital camera, if so how about a picture of the drive block, you may have a problem with the drive block and think it is ok if you don't understand what you are looking for.
