It looks like that no filament is extruded, because when printing in the air you would have a lot of loose filament in the printer.

 

Check if filament feeder is working, maybe grinded filament or clogged nozzle, or ......

If it's not working, then something is wrong. Like @Smithy said, it looks like your printer stopped extruding. If it stopped extruding, because it couldn't exit the nozzle (burnt material, etc), then it would grind at the feeder because the feeder is pushing but there's nowhere for the filament to go.

 

Can you please elaborate a little more? When you removed the filament from the feeder, what did it look like? Do you have a picture?


Does the filament that's in the bowden tube have teeth marks on it?

If you load fresh filament, does anything extrude?
