If you notice bubbles in the water returning into the pool from the eyeball/discharge, or water in the strainer basket is visibly swirling (bubbles visible) odds are you need you replace the o-ring on the lid of the strainer basket in the front of the pump. This basket may also be clogged with debris, which also effect pressure. Could also be a cracked or warped strainer lid. Should be easy to see when you remove to check o-ring. Once you remove the strainer o-ring make sure you lube it with a good silcone based lube.

No pressure in the filter

Pull the pump apart, maybe the impeller is broken, put a hose up the suction line to check for blockage, is there a non return valve in the suction line? Maybe just an air leak, only takes a pin hole !

Sounds like the motor is not turning. Check your impeller and motor to see if it spins freely by hand.

If not then you either have something stuck in the pump or the bearings are bad. If it is freely spinning, check your start capacitor
