What is your Connection String you have given to install PgAgent Service.?

pg_dump is not a sql command so you have to create a batch file to execute 
this command. Kind is to selected as Batch and in definition tab give the 
path to that batch file.

If you have selected One Hour that means 1 'O' clock in night that is 01:30 
HRS in night it would perform the task.
Suggestion - to test remove check from hours and put some more in minutes so 
that every hour after some minutes the task is performed.
