You do not need to pull your motor to free it or to see if its stuck.
If it's the older black motor and pump you can turn the motor fan blades by hand.
If it's the newer silver one it can be done also but a slightly diffferent way.
If you are able to free your stuck pump, run it for a while with the bottom panel removed and make sure it's not leaking. one drop is unacceptable.

Look up a WD26X10013 motor and pump assembly at the bottom of this page and decide if it's time to repair or replace.
Just because the drain solenoid is getting power doesn't mean the motor is getting power. They are on two different circuits.
If wouldn't hurt one bit (unless you get shocked of course) to take a meter to the motor leads and make sure it's getting power. At the very least make sure you can hear it humming, trying to run, before you order the pump. Wouldn't want you to find an additional problem AFTER you've paid for a pump.

Can you tell how old this is?
If not, I'm inclined to get a new dishwasher.
Any suggestions for one that is made well? My wife wants the kind with the utensil rack in the door and stainless.

In my house my wife can have any Whirlpool product she wants.
