I have the Little Giant pump and it seems like the motor is humming but no water is pumping. I took the bottom off and cleaned what I could. It's only a few years old and used to work great.

Either the pump or the motor has seized up...
You need to take the motor off and figure out which it is....
then you can figure out if the pump is bad (bad bearing)
or if the motor has gone bad...

I cleaned the screen, and the impeller is working however the little giant pump WGP is still not pumping water.

You may need to take the bottom of the pump apart and check to see if any thing has gotten through the screen and clogged the impeller.

Humming pump throws beaker

It's because you may have a defective starting capacitor or a stuck-up motor or pump. If you know how to check a capacitor, do so. If not try replacing the old one. If the problem still persist, try to turn the shaft with your hand. If you can't turn it. You might have a defective motor or pump bearings.
