to open the basket the pump needs to be off. all drains and the skimmer needs to be shut. otherwise all the water from the pool will leak out... now when you have done all of that. there should be a ring around the lid you take a hold of that and twist. it can be alittle stiff at first.. When you get that ring off the lid will pop off. now water will come out of it becuase it's just what's in the pump and in the line. once the water is out you can take the basket out and clean it. Now very important. when you put the lid and the locking ring back on open the skimmer and the drains to get water back into the pump. If the pump is not filling up go ahead and automatically put water in there until it's full. once the pump is full you can turn back on the pump and everything should work fine. if you have any other questions please let me know.

If it does hum, but not start it couuld be the capicator. Check to be sure the motor turns free. If it does and won't start , and it has a capacitor (hump on motor or in back cover) try replacing. (Be sure motor is turned off)

SOURCE: What are the specifications for
Take the cover off of the capacitor...it is the bump on the top of the motor...then look on the capacitor and find the numbers that end with mfd. that is the size or rating of the capacitor...also then look for the voltage of the capacitior...you need to match that also...there are so many different motors used, even for the same pump that it is hard to say for sure what you may need there with out looking at it.
You can do that and then you know you are getting the correct cap for your motor...
My guess is that you are looking for something in the range of a 20mfd 370volt cap. but please check it out for sure they vary alot!!
