My guess,

There's still something in the assembly, most likely on the other side of the screen, in the impeller assembly,

Part number: AP631386

Part number: AP631386

You'll need to separate the motor from the pump housing and check for debris and damage to the impeller and associated parts.

You'll need to remove the hanger, holding the motor end up and the motor wire harness, the drain hoseand the drain solenoid linkage. loosen the 2 hose clamps holding the pump assembly to the sump. and the upper clamp attached to the spray arm assembly and carefully slide the assembly out, so you can access and remove the impeller assembly parts, and check the debris.

Good Luck,
Thanks for allowing to assist you,
