It may be that the gear in the starter that engages the flywheel is not operating and it is just spinning. This will make a whirring sound as you describe. If that is the case, a new starter is needed.

you failed to say, does crank, when it don't start?
and btw, the fuel pump on most cars only run cranking or running
some run for 3 seconds, key on, but you'd miss that fact. using
only one person.
the key word here is crank, does it crank as full speed, via the cranking starter motor. that is the engine cranks spins fast.
on this car it will spin min 250 RPM, cranking, and uses large
battery current , so on diesels it takes a very strong battery to start
and working glow plugs.

It's possible the timing belt has broken. Has it ever been replaced? (This isn't the serpentine belt that you see in front of the engine; the timing belt is located inside the front engine cover where you can't see it.) If that's the problem, make sure that the engine hasn't been damaged before spending big bucks to have the belt replaced. (In some engines, when the timing belt breaks, the pistons can damage the valves. If your car has an engine like that, it may not be worth repairing.)
