It could be either the bearings have collapsed and seized or that an object such as a sock,stone,screw or the like has got down into the drum and jammed it solid.one way to see if it is a small object like a stone or screw which may work is to undo the screw on the pulley,this is normally a torx screw,you will have to undo in an anti-clockwise direction,then gently prise off the pulley but be careful its soft alloy and could break,once off try jiggling the drum it has some end play and this may be enough to release the jammed article.If this does not do it then the drum will have to come apart if it is a split type drum unit.Also try looking around the front by the door seal sometimes if a sock gets stuck it can get jammed around this point and you may see it.
Firstly, you can carefully run your hand around the inside of the drum. If you're really lucky the object may poke thru one of the holes enough for you to grab with a pair of pliers. Try turning the drum back and forth to catch the object in the holes. If this doesn't work you can take the sump hose off on the bottom of the outer tub. If all else fails you may have to remove the heater element and more than likely that's where the object is stuck. (Please ensure if you do not but a new element in use some petroleum jelly or washing liquid to get the old element back in, or you may solve one problem but create a leak). Also, when refitting element be sure that it is sat under it's internal bracket or the drum will scrape on it when it turns.
Hope this helps
ps I'm betting evens that it's a bra underwire!
If you cannot turn the machine by hand then it may be an idea to see if the drive belt has snagged around the back end some how take a peep with a torch thru. top.if the belt looks ok it may be that something has got stuck inside the drum.Sometimes socks get stuck between the front of the drum casing and the drum shine a torch around the front by the door seal and see if you can see any objects jutting out if you can be careful and try with a vice grips to pull out if no joy it sounds as if it will have to be a tub out job.Sometimes objects like coins can be fished out thru the back where the heater sits but still a lot of work to get down there.Body of machine has to be split for access.
this aint an easy fix.
Sometimes a bra wire gets through the holes and gets stuck.
the only thing you can do is split the drum housing and empty it out.
No hard to to but takes a lot of time and patience.
Sometimes when you are lucky take the pump hose off the drum housing and look in that hole. sometimes it gets stuck there
Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub. Open washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port. keep a rag nearby to dry up spillage of water when removing the rubber host.
Good luck !!
