Question about Pool & Spa
The pump is leaking & drains the hot tub
If it's leaking between the motor and the pump it means the shaft seals are shot
Take the pump in to a local repairer
If you where here in Sydney Australia I would fix it in a jippy

The pump motor may be locked up. If the pump wasn't considerably loud before you drained it (indicating bearings rusted out and going bad) then you may be able to free the motor shaft. Sometimes rust will accumulate between the staters and rotors within the motor. You could remove the shaft access cover on the rear of the motor. (Usually takes a 1/4" nut driver) If the shaft is accessible, and doesn't have a centrifugal switch mounted to the end of it, you may have a shot without professional assistance. It is usually slotted for a 1/2" wrench. Take the wrench and attempt to work the shaft back and forth until it frees up. If it already spins freely, then the start capacitor is likely bad and needs to be replaced. If the shaft offers resistance, then continue to turn it back and forth until it spins freely. Replace cover and switch it on. Its should start up fine. If the motor shrills, then the motor will need to be replaced. Hope this helps you.
