Not likely....
It is more likely that the pump has an air lock or the pump has come apart internally...
Try turning off and on a few times, if that does not work then the pump is probably broken...

Wiper fluid comes out sparingly and not all the time, motor works

Be sure you have 12 volts at the pump motor, and that the pump intake is not obstructed. Then, make sure the jets are not blocked on the hose side, as the jet diameter is smaller than hose diameter. I would remove the hoses at the jets and the pump and blow air backwards through the system. Also, blow air backwards through the jets to insure they are not clogged inside. Replace all hoses and try system, if no change, then the pump itself is bad, probably a bad impeller in the pump. This should fix the problem...Good luck.

Motorcycle/dirtbike/ttr225/starting problem. Is not getting gas to sparkplug.As long as i put gas in sparkplug hole motor fires until burns gas out.

sounds like your pilot jet may be clogged, or your needle valve is stuck shut, remove the float bowl and check it out. (the pilot jet will be the smallest one, and the needle vavle will be attached to the plastic float assembly.

When i turn jacuzzi on it primes and one of the pumps/jets turns on, then when i try to turn the other jet/pump on it makes a funny sound and blows a fuse i checked to see if any air is in the line but...

This is probally a bad motor, the sound you hear is the motor trying to start but when it can't the breaker trips. If it takes a start capacitor it may be this rather than a motor but you will have to pull the motor to see. It may also be a clog in the pump but the motor sounds like the problem.

Mantis tiller won't run at high rpm

check the carburator, it sounds like a main jet is clogged or the carburator is dirty. Is the air filter clogged? Is the motor under strain?

Once tub is filled. The whirlpool jets do not work. Do not know if they could be clogged or not. Only hear the sound of the motor.

The impeller in the pump has probably been broken......a costly fix as you can only get a new pump to fix thins.
But just for kicks and giggles......check to see if the intake isn't clogged. Remove the filter/strainer and see if anything is blocking it. 
Probably not but it is a free and quick check
