Fix the agitator in Kenmore 70 Series washing machine

I have a Kenmore 70 Series top load washing machine. Model # 82870120. It started making grinding noise. The agitator does not move during operation. I also noticed a burning smell, like a belt, but if it was a belt, it wouldn't be grinding, or would it? With the washer off, you can spin the agitator clockwise by hand, but not counterclockwise. I have read that there is something you can replace in the agitator itself. If you have any advice, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

Having this happen can be concerning. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, the model number you have provided was incorrect. A suggestion I have is to go over your model number and add it to this thread so you can get a better answer from the experts!
