Make sure breaker/power to pump is off. Remove the six bolts holding the wet end to the seal plate. Remove the diffuser to expose the impeller. Remove the screw in the middle of the impeller by turning clockwise (left hand threads). Remove the dust cap at the rear of the motor and use a wrench to hold the shaft while you remove the impeller by turning counterclockwise. Once the impeller is off, remove the four bolts holding the seal plate to the motor. Press the old seal out of the seal plate and clean it thoroughly. Remove the ceramic part of the seal from the impeller and clean it thoroughly as well. Apply a thin coat of lube to the seal plate and impeller where the new seal will go. Remove the new PS1000 shaft seal from the box (being careful not to touch the ceramic or carbon face with your fingers), press the metal part into the seal plate carefully, try not to bend the metal and make sure its completely seated against the seal plate. You can now install the seal plate back onto the motor and secure with four bolts. Press the ceramic part into the impeller, use cardboard or paper between your fingers and the ceramic face. Once you have seated the seal into the impeller, hold the motor shaft and thread the impeller on until snug, then reinstall the stainless screw, remember it is left hand thread so you'll have to turn it counterclockwise. Reinstall the diffuser over the impeller and then install the wet end onto the seal plate using the six bolts, don't overtighten them.
It is a good idea to replace the tank o-ring when taking to pump apart, but if the o-rings are in good condition, just apply a light coat of lube and reuse them.
This is a general guide for replacing a seal, if you have trouble removing the impeller, you may need an impeller wrench and a tool to hold the motor shaft.
I hope this helps, if you have any specific questions, email me at email@example.com

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
It could be the pump is bound up but it is more likely the motor is failing. It may be a small part such as the capacitor or the starting switch, but could also be more severe such as the winding itself. You will also want to examine the shaft where it passes thru the pump and motor and look for signs of rust from a pump seal leak.
If you are not familiar with testing these parts your best bet would be a local electric motor repair shop to see if the motor can be repaired or if it would need to be replaced. They should also be able to ensure there is no pump damage.
