I had the same problem after dropping my M6 on its rewind knob, and
fixing the knob myself when the part was in back order. It looks like
the knob has a way of screwing itself in as you wind, becoming tighter
and tighter until the advance doesn't work anymore.

My problem went away when I installed a new rewind knob. But take a
look at it, maybe rotate in the direction it goes when you wind (with
no film in the camera) and maybe you'll figure out what's wrong.
