When I go to spin or agitate the drum moves round a tiny bit and I can hear the motor trying to turn, but not managing. I've checked the filter, drained the machine fully, checked the belt and carbon brushes and all are fine.
I ran the motor with the back off the machine and can see that it does try to turn, but stops.

If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine. How to Drain Washing Machine That Won Drain Family Handyman What is wrong with a washer that does not spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drive washing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle Washer Doesnt Agitate or Spin Maytag Washing Machines will not rinse or spin Google Search
Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.
Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.
Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)
Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.
On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.
your pump is blocked,at bottom of machine there should be a flap with a round plug in middle .unscrew,it will have water come out so use a bowl or big towel.the impeller should turn freely,once plug is unscrewed at front put washer into a drain program see if the pump turns.if this is free youll need to get the pump off(unplug machine first)and then feel inside the big pipe from the drum to pump.it may have a sock or something like inside.this means it will work but wont get out all the water.also note when trying to spin a pillow,or big towel the load will be uneven so it will reduce its spin speed so it doesnt destroy its self
the drum should run free if not the bearing have gone and seized they will need to be replaced. hear is a video there are others you can find the bearing kit on line using the model number https://youtu.be/WGolkFlgl3Y
Try the drive belt from motor to the drum it could have stretched a little? The noise you can hear could be the heating element catching the inner drum or something like a wire from a bra came loose in a wash and is trapped between the drums ?
Unplug machine, remove water pump and motor, behind the motor is a coupler, take broken parts to your local appliance parts store. Costs 16 bucks, replace the broken parts with new ones, reassemble machine. Never ever do a blanket/comforter in your machine again!!
