OK there is a procedure but it is a little hard to do. You need to turn off power, take off the back cover of the pump, inside there you should see the back of the motor shaft. You need to look at the shaft and see where you can grab it with pliers and manually rotate it around clockwise direction. Sometimes dirt or sand get into motor over winter and bind up the shaft. Once you can freely turn the motor shaft then turn power back on and see if pump operates.
If it still does not operate then it may be the starting capacitor in the motor. That is a silver cup looking piece that has wires going to the top of it. Google motor starting capacitors to see a picture of it. You must replace the part with the exact same number part.
Well technically I think my response was correct but you had no ability to follow through due to access so I will leave the decision up to you if I deserve the payment.
