Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If you have to manually spin the bowl, there may be a leak in the center seal that is causing the bowl to seize until manually turned. Or, the belt may be loose. Are you able to inspect the belt and area under the washing machine for any signs of leakage?

No leakage under machine. Dry and covers in dust. Belt tension looks good.

The transmission assembly likely has issues then. Any oil on the cabinet walls under the machine?
