Bent axle??

with the wheel off the bike, remove the skewer.

Place the wheel on the ground in a vertical position, just like it would be if on the bike and the bike were up right.

Turn the axle with your thumb and pointer finger. Does it turn smoothly or does it kind of bob up and down. "Bob" is a technical bike wrench term....

Placing a bike on a trainer that attatches to the rear axle (over the skewer) and over-tightening can lead to a bent axle...

Just a wild guess, based on a few clues given. Money back guarantee if I am wrong...
