Maytag Washer grinding sound.

I have a Maytag model # pavt244aww. When cycle is engaged there is a grinding sound & the agitator attemps to spin. After a short time the sound changes & it ceases to try to agitate. It won't pump either. I took belt off & motor & pump pulleys spin freely in both directions. The main pulley spins freely in one direction but has resistance in the other. Is this transmission shot?
