Did you remember to push the rewind release button, on the bottom of the camera first? Failure to do so will either not allow you to rewind the film (without applying a lot more force than needed), rip off the film sprocket holes, damage the camera's internal gearing, or any number of other nasty things.
There should be a small button on the camera's bottom baseplate, press it in and it should rewind smoothly.
You may have hit the end of the film. Rewind the film back to the spool until the very end gets back in the shell.
If you think you still have unexposed film do the following.
Rewind about 1-2 full rotations.
Cover the lens using the cap. We're doing this so that step 2.3 will not spoil your last pictures.
Take 2 shots (with the lens cover).
This time the button at the button should have popped out.
Okay this is completely on memory. With the button on the bottom pushed in the camera is waiting for your to rewind the film back into the canister after this is done lift the wheel (not the crank it can break) the wheel is just below the crank and the back of the camera will open so you can take the film out. Reload a fresh roll close the door and advance to the first frame you are back in business again.
I think you have already ruined the film except the frames that are rewind back to the film cartridge. You can take the film out from the camera, push in the rewind button at the bottom, pull out the film from the film take up reel. On the film cartridge, turn on the long tube in the middle clockwise to wind all the film back into the cartridge. If you had the back opened briefly, do manual film rewinding in the dark room.
is the film being ripped along the sprocket holes? if so, the rewind button is not unlocking the drive sprocket. with film removed open the film door and push the rewind button in, the drive sprocket should turn freely. now charge the shutter with the advance lever. the rewind button should pop out and the drive sprocket should not turn freely.
if the sprocket did not turn freely with button pushed in, the camera needs repaired. there are no new parts for this model canon so any parts needed will be good used.
I'm afraid you have a somewhat serious problem. There is a tungsten cable that runs from the speed dial to the rewind side if the camera. This cable sets the brushes for the electrical contacts the are under the rewind assembly. Adjusting speeds or ASA changes the position of the contacts.
It is very likely that the cable has broken and needs replaced. Canon no longer supports these nor do they have parts
