    Could be a number of things.

    Try turning the drum in the correct direction by hand.
    It should turn fairly easily.
    My thought here is that there may be too much drag on the drum for some reason. It is overheating and tripping it's internal thermal protect. This shuts the motor off. When the protect resets it starts up again.
    May also just be a bad motor.

    Might also be a problem with the belt and or the belt switch.

    Finally could be a control board problem.
