How can I be sure it is the tranny?

If I was to order a new transmission, what part do I need?

Unplug machine and tip it back. Remove the belts, turn the transmission pulley counterclockwise. Have someone watch the agitator. The agitator should move back & forth. Turn the pulley clockwise & it will release the brake and the tub will spin. If you can not get the agitator to move the upper bearing in the transmission has seized,most likely from a seal slowly letting water down on top of the transmission. There used to be a kit that was reasonable to replace the transmission. Now everything is sold separately and more expensive.

It burns the belt on wash (agitate).  Spinning, draining, pumping works fine.

You must have something under the agitator wrapped around the shaft or something lodged between the inner and outer tubs.
