Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the motor is getting energized, either the solenoid is seized/faulty or power is not getting to it. If you look at the plastic piece at the bottom of the solenoid, is the bucket arm going into that plastic piece or below it? The arm should insert into the part shown as number 45C in the diagram at the link below. CLICK HERE
