It sounds like your house weights need to be adjusted. When the pool cleaner is resting, it should always sit at a 45 degree angle on the bottom of the pool. If it stands up on the front side, try sliding the weight away from the cleaner head. You may need to make several small adjustments to get the balance right, but this is almost surely your problem. Here is a copy of the users manual if you want to read more about hose weights and balance:

Check your pool cleaners hose to make sure that it is not becoming tangled. Storing the hose in a coiled position will cause this. If it is not moving and it is not the hose, you could have a leak in a connection somewhere. If the cleaner is getting adequate suction, it should be moving. Try adjust the hose weights to make sure the cleaner is at a 45 degree angle to the pools floor.

My baracuda G3 stop working is not pulsating and therefore not moving. I checked the suction and the hoses even the diaphram everything looks ok.

If you have suction at the bottom of the cleaner, there has to be a problem with the diaphragm. I would remove it and recheck.

I installed this weekend, but the g3 does not move forward, instead it goes backward, how do i fix, or should I?

i assume you mean 'on bottom' pool cleaner? let it run a full cycle, see if it reverses and goes forward. if not get the manual and re-check your programming set-up.
good luck!
