The symptoms of a bad throwout bearing are (usually) noise with the clutch disengaged, which goes away when the clutch is pressed in. You were getting the exact opposite, which indicates that you're suffering input shaft wear, which is common on 5MT Subaru transmissions. With input shaft wear, the shaft gets a little bit smaller over time, but the throw-...

as this is a mechanical linkage and not hydraulic it is likely that the cable (being new) needs to be adjusted up. Try that.

It sounds like the cable is out of adjustment, preventing the clutch pedal from disengaging the clutch plate from the flywheel. This would allow you to shift when the engine is off, but make it difficult to shift when the engine is running. I would check to see if the cable is broken or binding anywhere. If not, follow these procedures (youtube link) for ...

The clutch pedal/lever also controls how much the clutch will slip at various pedal/lever positions. A slipper clutch is locked when forward drive is required. However when off throttle the clutch friction plates are allowed to ...

Motorcycle clutch plates sticking together in the morning is a fairly common complaint. The oil squeezes out from between the plates overnight, and they don't want to separate when you first pull in the clutch lever. One could conjecture that this is a sign the clutch is getting old and tired, but I had this problem with a brand new factory clutch in a ...
