It is your pump that is failing / bolked with hair and treds behind the impeller. The pump is not the best design as ther can enter smal treds and hair behind the impeller into the paking ring (seal). There is only one sollution that help - change the pump. Can be don from the fron of the mashine. Only one screw on the right side has to be removed to remove the plastig cover and the one screw to losen the pump.

Sorry but you do not say what make and model it is- front or top loader?
This possible cure applies to both!
Check the (drain motor) lint tray/filter if you have not done so already, especially as you say that it doesn't pump out the water. Either the filter is blocked OR the drain motor is malfunctioning. In either case that is enough to stop the machine.The filter is normally situated behind the front lower panel, certainly in most front loaders.
Before turning the filter holder anticlockwise to remove have a water receptacle and/or rags available to catch any water. It is a good habit to check the filter regularly!
It is also a good habit, especially in areas of 'hard' water to run the contents of a sachet of proprietary anticalc powder through regularly. It will help to keep the heating element clean AND the filter to a certain extent.
Hope this solves your problem,
