Question about Washing Machines
I took the back panel off and watched the drum/motor. the rod coming out of the motor spins but wont turn the wheel that is attached to the belt that spins the drum. Is it the motor thats bad?
No - it is likely the key for the pulley that has broken.
You'll need to remove the pulley to see if the keyway is damaged. If so - you'll need to change the motor.
