Wiper Clue... Click but no motion.....

I know there is another good thread going on about a related issue but didn't want to side-track it so making a new post. My wiper and pump unit are relatively new, and the car has been re-wired some time ago. When I turn on the wiper with the knob, I here a definite "click" inside the wiper unit, but no motion. Any guess what this could be? I'm told the wipers worked in the past. Thanks!

Both Hi and Low speeds? Can you take a photo of the wiper motor?

I hate it when they don't use original wire colors.
The washer pump looks to be OK. On the motor; there are two plugs, the single plug should go to the right, the double plug to the left.

What do the wire labels say?

Well got it fixed. The pump and low speed wire were reversed, AND the motor was burnt. Thanks all!
