Hi,
If it will turn freely by hand when the door is open, it could be that the motor brushes have worn out. Are there any blue lights flashing inside or underneath the machine when it turns or tries to turn, or is there a lot of black powder on the floor under the motor?
Those are signs of the brushes wearing out. They usually cost £5 to £15 depending on manufacturer and a "handyperson" can usually fit them without difficulty.

Hope this helps!
If it doesn't, please hold off the rating button and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

Washer fills but won't agitate or spin


Try making sure the belts are actually on the drum, probably have to turn upside down. Sounds silly but a lot of simple things are missed.

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
