Roper Washing machine SM8280871 will not activate spin cycle.

I have a Roper SM8280871 washing machine. When I checked my clothes, they were washed and rinsed, but still wet. I set the timer to "spin" to dry them out and closed the lid. When I did, there was a grinding noise almost like someone put a car into gear without using the clutch. I tried again with the lid up (and switch bypassed) to see what was going on. The same noise was heard and neither the agitator nor the tub spun. I unloaded the bin of wet clothes and tried again with the same result.

Also, the agitator was hard to turn by hand.
