    Are the pairs of wires on the motor the same configuration as to what is on the board? You can measure them with an ohm meter.

    Here are three different method to identify the coils of a stepper motor in one video.

    The motor pulsh that you hear can be a motor move so slow that your eyes can not see, it happen to me the very first time I connect my stepper motors to a break out board.
    Just put a tape on the motor saft or a mark on the moving white plastic to see if that moves ,the move could be so slow that you have to wait some seconds to understand that sometimes is going in.
