Question about Pool & Spa
Pump runs but makes a loud noise when it is running.
Typically this sound indicates bearings going out. Usually this means replacing the motor, or may be repairable depending on size and make.

Your bearing are failing. Replacing them and the seal at a local electric motor repair shop will likely cost around $50.

If this is a high pitched sound, then this sounds like you have bearings that are starting to go out. There is not much that you can do to prevent eventual failure.
The only other option that I see is that there is something causing friction inside the pump between the impeller and diffuser.

check the motor bearings,(take the pump apart from the motoer should 4 bolt,,,, then wiggle the shaft should not move at all.) then look at the impeller to see how worn it is or if it is touching any part of the houseing.
