You can test it your pump by disconnecting the hose from the water tank and put this end in the glass of water and let it run and see if sucking water from the glass.

The description is based on experience with faulty steam generator irons.
Before you purchase the pump I suggest to open the base and take a look if other components are fine as may have water hose damaged or steam hose blocked.
The steam hose is likely to block in the elbow feeding the steam to the soleplate you need to open the iron.
To open the iron starting from the back unscrew one or two screws, then using a flat screwdriver lift the top of the handle starting from the back.
There is screw close to the soleplate tip when you remove the top of the handle and two screws at the back.
