1.), Pump may be bad. Check voltage to water pump in Spin Cycle. If you have voltage at the pump, but it does not run, replace the pump.

2.) If you have voltage to the water pump, and can hear or feel it running, cut power off, and remove the boot which is directly below the wash bin. The boot empties into the water pump. You will need long needle nose pliers or better, use water pump pliers to remove the straps holding the rubber piping to the pump and the boot. Remove debris from the boot, i.e., bobby pins, coins, socks, pens, keys, etc.

3.) If no voltage comes to the pump in spin cycle, you may need a new timer.

4.) Install a new belt on the motor pulley. You will regret not replacing the belt later.

My first suspect is the thermocouple has failed (they should be changed periodically, every 5-7 years as they do fail). Without the signal from the thermocouple, the gas valve can not open and start the ignition process.

The following manual suggest the problem is either gas supply or pilot assembly.

it is a WATER HEATER. you do not need to heat HOT water.
Gas or electric?
Electric = turn power on
Gas = instructions are on gas valve or in your manual.
does not light = verify a spark at burner when you push button (can be hard to see, turn off lights), verify gas valves are on and another appliance has gas, call for service.

Water heaters only have a top and bottom thermostats which seldom go bad. Heating elements wear out most often. If you are running out of hot water too quickly kill the power drain the tank and remove bottom heating element using a special large socket. Visual inspection should tell you if it is melted. If it is ok check the top heating element. If the heater was on and the tank not full the top element will go first. Elements never operate at the same time
