The freehub pawls are not engaging. Eiither the freehub is really dirty inside or something is broken.
Try adding some light oil to the seam where the inner stationary "core" and the rotating outer shell meet to see if helps. If not, the freehub body has to be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and don't require a new wheel.
