Hello,

my name is Billy

unfortunately this is one of those"it is what is" things.

Short story is you have metal to metal contact in the pump which requires replacement. While it could have been fine..the end result is that it is not now. And instead of it has power then it doesnt...or kicks off and on....those are things to be troubleshot..BUT, your issue is very direct...you have a bad pump/motor that needs to be replaced.
