Sounds like it just needs lubricating. It's probably dry seals rubbing against the stainless shaft.
Bad bearings usually make grinding noises. Replacing bearings can be a DIY job, but not a teriffically simple one.

Is the motor running? If it is there could be a coupler broken. If the motor is not running, it could be the problem. If the motor is not running, is there power to it? If not, it may be a broken switch that controls the motor. If the motor has power but not running, then probably the motor, its starting system or bearings. Bearings? Yes, they may be frozen and or dry. Dont spend a lot of money until you have the problem located. Good luck...Lee

To get to the Impeller you need to remove a series of bolts, or a large clamp, that holds the two halves of the pump together. Once you do that, if their is a diffuser (housing that goes over the impeller), remove it. To remove the impeller, you need to lock the motor shaft. You can do this a couple different ways depending on the motor. There will either be a small cap that grants access to the motor shaft on the back of the motor, or you remove a larger housing that grants access to the wiring and other components in the back of the motor. If it's the small cap, then you can hold the shaft with a wrench. If it's the larger housing, then you can slip a wrench (probably 7/16") under the thermal overload switch and onto the shaft to lock it in place. Now you can unscrew the impeller. Check to see if the impeller has a screw in the center. If so remove this first. It will be reverse thread. The impeller should spin off counter clockwise. If the impeller is very tight, be careful not to damage it. If you don't have an impeller wrench, I strap wrench, or very large locking pliers with a rag around the impeller works well. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

If the motor does not run, the water will not circulate and wont't get hot. I don't believe the wiring or breaker are at fault either, just to be on the safe side, check for tight connections all around, specially the ones coming from the breaker to the motor.
The problem with the motor is that is not getting enough juice to start up, so the start capacitor is most likely to be at fault and needs to be checked, if you don't have a multimeter with the capacitance function, just remove the capacitor and have it checked at the store. You can get capacitors at any appliance parts, electrical and most hardware stores. You can also get a motor start up kit for under $15 to solve this problem. Wiring instructions are included.
The capacitor is usually located on top of the motor, remove the metal casing to access it, before removal, take a picture of the wiring so you can hook it up the same way.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!
