There are no solenoids. The motor has the overload protection which makes such clicking sound.
If there are any water marks on the motor, it had a slow water leak for some time, which caused damage to the motor bearings and/or windings.

If there are no such marks, then remove the top parts from the pump and check for a foreign objects inside and/or broken impellers.

Post the results.
