I had the same problem with ours, turns out the bearing in the hub seized. Took off the belt, motor turns just fine. If you take the back cover off, (unplus washer first) slip the belt off the pulley, and the pulley still won't spin freely, then you have the same problem.
Not sure how expensive the fix is, hub assembly is $200
This is an easy fix and I'lll be glad to help. I know they are heavy, but pull the washer away from the wall. If you can get behind with the water hoses and drain connected more power to you. Do however unplug the machine.
Now, there is a panel at the back of the washer with.. 8 screws i think. These are 9/32 nut driver I believe. Once this panel is gone set it aside. You are now face to face with the belt. Take the old belt off (if it is still there). Now, take the new belt and loop it on the motor shaft first. Make sure each rib is in a groove on the motor shaft. Then loop the other side on the large pulley on the back of the tub. Naturally this is a tight fit, but put some of the belt on the pulley and rotate the pulley. This will pull the belt onto the pulley and you will be done!
Let me know if I can be of further assistance :D good luck!
This can be a finger buster. I put it on the motor pulley and roll it onto the tub pulley. I have seen others use a large crowbar to slide it over the motor pulley last but that seem risky to me. It is a very tight fit. Eric
