SOURCE: I lost water pressure in my swimming pool line and

If your pump is blocked in any way (usually a closed valve), then the pump cannot keep water flowing. It could be starved of water if blocked on the suction side, or an air leak. On the return side, it's usually a ``dead head`` pipe, or a closed outlet valve. In either case, the pump can overheat and actually boil the water within it. In that case, the fittings attached to it can deform and cause bigger air leaks, which compounds the problem. If you replace the fittings, reconnect the pipe and remove any blockages, you should be fine.

SOURCE: Start pool up this year pump is louder makng whine

loud screaching noise??? sounds like bearing failure. this most common failure of pool motors. YOu can try to replace the bearings or replace the motor.

SOURCE: water coming out down by motor

sounds like a shaft seal leak..... cut power to pump ... unbolt the motor at the seal plate and pull motor from pump... take electrical cover off back of pump and hold the shaft at the middle (may have to do some digging to find it) of the back of the pump... now youll be able to remove the impeller by spinning it counter clockwise...
make sure you dont go cheap on the seals... and make certain to replace all seals on pump
(diffuser oring, housing gasket, shaft seals, and lid gasket

SOURCE: I have Hayward Centurian SE 2 hp pool motor

if its whining but still spinning, the bearings are done. If it just makes a loud noise, the capacitor could be bad or the bearings have seized.

I have a DREAMMAKER SPA (6 months old) with a 2 speed HYBRID PUMP. It has developed a high pitched whistle or whine when running. Is this a bearing? Could there be some stuff stuck in the impeller??

90% chance it is indeed the bearings. It is possible something could be stuck in the impeller causing noise, but not usually a high pitched whine. If you see water leaking, or calcium buildup where the pump meets the motor, then the shaft seal has failed and that is what's causing the bearing failure. Either way you'll need to replace the motor or have the bearings replaced. Look for a local pool pump repair shop (or some pool supply stores replace bearings as well). They should check the motor out for free and give you estimate to to repair/rebuild, or a price on a new motor if that's what you need/want. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

Whining when i press gas

normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.

oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

This is a sign of a faulty drain pump impeller. the drive shaft that is connected to the impeller is stripping the impeller. you will eventually need to replace the entire pump soon.
