1) The pump is cavitating (sucking in air) could be not enough water flow to it, or a leak.
2) The bearings could be bad or misaligned

If not on top of the motor it could be in the back mounted to the end bell. Many motors now don't have a start cap but are wired to get this done. Sorry to say but a lot of motors are ment to be throw aways nowadays.

SOURCE: How do you get to the shaft seal to replace it ???

Your motor is AO Smith, your pump is attached to it. You will have a steel band clamp around the pump behind where the basket is, or a large lock ring, or it may go together with six or eight bolts or screws. Don't take off the four bolts that hold the motor to the pump.
after you pull this clamp or bolts it will seperate easy enough. If you have a lock ring and the pump runs undo the ring and start the pump for a second and it will come apart.
Inside you will find a difusser this will ether just pull off or will be held on with two to five screws. Pull this off, now you are at the impeller and you need to look in the center of this to see if it has a screw or a nut in the center. Not all will have this but now days a bunch do, so if you don't see one don't worry. This will be left handed so to unscrew you will turn it clockwise.
Now take a wrench and hold the shaft in the back of the motor, usually a 7/16" open end, (be sure that the power is off for this) then try to unscrew the impeller, you may have to put a screw driver blade in the impeller and give it a hit with a small hammer or the like to get it started. Once you unscrew the impeller you are at the seal just pull out and lube the new one as you put it in. If you can't find the brand of pump take the lid to the store with you and they can get you the proper seal with that. Good luck.

First thing to do about chemicals for above ground sand filters

alkalinity 100 ppm
calcium 200 ppm
stabilizer 50 ppm (saltwater pool 25 ppm)

These values will provide balanced swimming pool water

Why is sand shooting back into pool

Inside the sand filter there are laterals that are PVC pipes with many narrow slots along their length. If a lateral is broken then sand will not be stopped by the lateral. Another possibility is that the part these laterals screw into is broken and sand leaks through. I hope this helps.

When turning pump on sand shoots into pool app. two seconds.replaced diverter and lateral coponents. still does the same thing. twm 19 inch p/n 520-1910

If you don't have a manual you can download one here:
Are you sure you didn't damage laterals when adding sand. Best to have 1/4 water in filter as you add sand. Be sure o ring is in place in multiport valve that fits on downtube.Be sure down pipe is not too low to enter multiport valve. The pipe should fit snugly into the multiport valve o ring. Be sure you have correct sand (pool filter sand only) IF all this is ok, try backwashing till glass is clear. Run on rinse position for a few min. THen go back to filter and see if it still pumps in sand.
