Before you pay for the tranny, put the unit into spin and start the unit.  Have the top raised up (the top not the lid so the switch stays engaged), with the unit running, try and turn the inner tub by hand.  If it turns freely by hand but not on it's own, the trans is bad.  If it is still stuck solid, the brake is not released and you would have to check the trust bearing and make sure the motor is pivoting freely on the motor plate.  On the thrust bearing kit pictured in the prior post, the 4th component down from the top can also get damaged and not allow the brake to release.
