When the pump is replaced, the washer lines and nozzles should be cleaned out if plugged, and the nozzles adjusted to spray properly onto the windshield.
When a washer pump fails, the windshield washers stop working and you will not hear any noise from the pump when trying to operate the washers.
The washer motor is sometimes replaced when problem is actually a defective washer switch, module, wiring, or plugged hoses and/or nozzles. Some systems have check valves that can plug as well. If you hear the pump running when operating the washer system, then the problem is likely something else.
