if it only runs a few seconds and stops, that means the unit doesn't detect the belt being attached. Pull the washer forward and remove the back panel to make sure the belt is attached. If the belt is attached then replace the motor control board because it's not sensing the motor pull correctly. If the belt has fallen off, then either replace it or put the belt back on if you can.

only the water will run for a few secs. drum will not spin at all. belt is on and in good shape. still think it is the motor control board?

yes, that is going to be your problem unfortunately. You need to replace the motor control board.
