If you already replaced the gasket and upon opeing the valve, it is still in the grooves, look for a crack in the valve body and/or diffuser.

it is not seated all the way try turnig to different positions several times if this does not work it probably sprocket wheel under handle assembly is bad or unseated make sure pump is off when changing positions

Pump motors used in most pool aplications can not be reversed. Changing the wires on the capacitor or reversing the line connections will not change the motor rotation. A failed capacitor can, from time to time, let a motor start "backwards" but it will not happen often if even at all. You might need to take the motor to a local electric motor repair shop for an inspection.

SOURCE: when filtering water it is
Is this a multi-port valve offering back wash, no filter, rinse, etc. modes? Have you ever turned it counter clock wise? (Never turn it counter clock wise.)
You will need to remove the top and put a new gasket in the valve.
If it is Push Pull, remove the two screws at the top and pull the assembly out. Remove and replace all "O" rings. Lube with silicone grease for pools and reassemble.
I think this will fis you up.
Thanks for your question today.
