If you have gunk in the line than it is exerting force backwards to the motor. Basically, increased resistance, which leads to increase in water pressure, which leads to more forces exerted on the pump itself.

Same idea as changing the oil in your car. You know how all the oil commercials promise to prevent/remove deposits.
