You have a bad motor, the start winding, or the centrifugal switch is bad. You will have to replace the pump/motor.

I have a Speck Pump, model E71, only a year old. It suddenly stopped working - it was fine at the start of the season. The problem is that it just hums when turned on.

Since it hums it has power. I believe there is a start capacitor on it, that or the start switch may have failed.

Loosen the motor and impeller from the pump by backing off the large plastic nut and take that whole section to an electric motor repair shop for inspection. If the motor is salvagable, they can quote the repair or replacement.
