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.
