Dont run pump any longer. Could damage it further. Recommend overhaul at qualified well established pool repair shop. If unset of noise suden probally somethign stuck. If onset of noise gradual probally bearing. Kirk

I have a Hayward Super Pool pump for my inground pool. Was running the pump, heard a noise, by the time I got over to the pump to check it it shut off. It has been off for over 2 hours. It is not hot....


Get another brand. Hayward is junk. I had the same exact thing happen. Of course warranty is only one year. I paid out of pocket to replace the motor. Guess what happened 2 years later?

My Hayward pump was very noisy but now trips the breaker. I can turn the impeller from the rear pretty easily.


Hayward is synonymous with junk. Let me guess. It's been in service for about two or so years when the noise started. Eventually the motor will burn out. I've gone through two motors and a diffuser on my Hayward pump. It's already making noise again.

Alot of rain flooded the area arond the pump twice which shut off power.now motor is quit noisy?Whaddyathink??


the water has damaged the bearings, it's only a matter of time before the bearings get louder or seize all together. You can have the bearings replaced or get a new motor installed. A bearing replacement is 2/3 the cost of a new motor and the rest of the components are still old and perhaps damaged from the flood. Your call, I'd go for a new motor.

I have Hayward Centurian SE 2 hp pool motor pump,around 15 years old. Just the other day it started making a loud whining noise. Is there a quick fix for this?


if its whining but still spinning, the bearings are done. If it just makes a loud noise, the capacitor could be bad or the bearings have seized.

I have a Hayward max-flo ii pool pump and it is very noisy. I already replaced all seals because it was also leaking. Are the bearings the cause of the noise? If so how do I replace bearings?


The bearings have likely lost their lubrication and have failed. You may be able tot find a local electric motor repair shop to replace the bearings. It really is not a diy project. However, if you can't find a local shop to do it, most folks replace the motor.

Hayward Swimming PoPump is 4 years old - when I opened pool, pump


it you've inspected all the wiring for possible shorts, the most likely problem is that the motor has developed a short in the windings. You may have to replace the motor. First check for loose connections and make sure the wiring going to the pump is good. Also, check the start capacitor, should be under the hump or under the end cover on the motor. If it's bloated or leaking, it's bad.
Most likely the winding have a direct short.

Pump has become very noisy. Does this mean it is going out?


when the pump is a couple of years old it is possible that the bearings needs to be replaced. before that make sure that there is no dirt in the pump. goodluck
