Does the motor run backwards or does flow change in the valve for that slide?
1. You need to check if that large solenoid closes when the switch is pushed and current is present on the other side. Also make sure the ground points are cleaned up. If the solenoid closes and the motor doesn't run, then that is where you problem is. That electric motor is grounded through the case which could mean the problem is internal to the motor. If I were you, iwouldputina call to HWH tech support. They stay very busy and you will have to wait fora call back. The good news is that they are very good with troubleshooting and once you get a tech on the line, they will be of enormous value.
2. If the problem is the solenoid then yes, you can jump it.
3. The motor only runs in one direction and the pump only runs in one direction. The direction of the slide is controlled by which solenoid valve on the body of the pump is open.
