Hi, you wont be able to move the wipers manually as they will be locked by the motor. There is only two obvious reasons why the motor should fail again. The new motor was a poor quality replacement or there is an underlying problem on the car like the wiper motor mechanism has excessive play or is stiff/tight and over working the motor causing it to fail. you need to have a proper check over before swapping it again.

Based on the gasping sound I would think that you need to check the solenoid on the starter. Sounds like it is trying to engage the starter. Make sure one of you battery cables is loose and both are tight on the battery. If you have a tester I would also check for voltage at the battery. Hope this helps.
