Frigidaire dishwasher arms stop spinning after 3 - 4 seconds

Hello everyone, I am having some issue with my Frigidaire dishwasher. I'll start the machine up, it will fill up with water, run fine for about 3 - 4 seconds, and then the arms will stop spinning entirely. On recent attempts, they don't even spin at all now!

I have tried the following things already:
- I have cleaned the arms to the best of my ability to ensure no blockage.
- I removed the pump/motor assembly and made sure there was nothing impeding it
- I cleaned the filters to ensure there was no glass or anything blocking it.
- I even poured more water into the dishwasher to see if it was an issue with the water inlet valve not delivering enough water.

So far nothing has worked.

My pump/motor hums and purrs very nicely during the cycle, but that motion is not translating to the arms.

Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!
