A loud pump is typically the bearings. You can get a bearing wheel for under $15 at your pool supply store. You should change the seals while you're at it- about $12. It's tricky to remove the impeller. Check Youtube for a nice "howto". You may also want to get a gear removal tool to remove the bearing wheel. Any auto parts store will carry it. To get to the bearing wheel you will need to remove the very long about 10 inch screws (4) from the rear housing. I used a 1 inch pipe to tap the bearing wheel. back on the shaft. Works great now.

Loud pumps are most times caused by bad bearings and need to be replaced or better yet replace the whole pump new bearing cost about $100 to replace but not always easy to find someone to do hope this helps

Hayward pumps are poor quality. You're lucky to get ten years. In 4 years I've needed the motor replaced twice and the pump repaired. The motor is starting to whine again. Just a matter of time before it fails. Do yourself a favor and stay away from Hayward.

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?

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.

Nope.... just replace the motor.... Some shops will redo bearings, but usually a 30 day warranty and a long wait.. Walk out the door with a new one with usually a 1 year warranty...

My magnum force pool pump was installed in dec. 2003. It still pumps very strong but is making a very loud noise when its on. It seems to be working fine except that its really, really loud. Any ideas?


More than likely your bearings are going bad. Pool pumps run many hours a day and if you get 5 years or more then that is about all you can expect. More than likely you can buy a new motor for just a little more than the price to replace the bearings but I suggest you contact a local electric motor shop to get a price on both. It will not hurt to continue to use the unit until it dies but the noise will drive you crazy and will really anoy your neighbors. You might want to install a smoke detector in the event the unit starts smoking or starts a fire.
