The motor bearings are failing. A local electric motor repair shop should be able to fix it rather inexpensively. You should probably have the pump seal replaced at the same time.

How to fix a noisy water pump on a grand jeep Cherokee 2007 3.00 deseil


a noisy water pump ( low growl or rumble noise) is a problem bearing and the cheapest fix is a new water pump
squeaks or other high pitched noises can be tested with soapy water on the belt--noise will stop for a short period of time
If the water pump housing is cast iron, you may be able to get a repair kit for the pump but the cost of the kit and the labor to do the job is generally around the price of a new pump

My 2hp hayward super pump is just out of warranty and has begun leaking. It also has a high pitched whine which comes and goes. Does that mean waters gotten into the bearing and if so can I replace it?...


Yes, water may have entered into the motor, mainly into the front motor bearing, where it washed away the lubrication. This will only make the noise louder and will need to replace the bearing. otherwise it will eventually seize and no longer work.

My Hayward pump was very noisy but now trips the breaker. I can turn the impeller from the rear pretty easily.


Hayward is synonymous with junk. Let me guess. It's been in service for about two or so years when the noise started. Eventually the motor will burn out. I've gone through two motors and a diffuser on my Hayward pump. It's already making noise again.

My Hayward Tristar 1.50 HP pump is 3 years old, and recently developed a high-pitched humming noise that is causing a noise disturbance. The performance seems to be operating okay, but it never used to...


sounds like the bearings are going out on the motor. The noise will increase as they wear out more until it locks up and throws the breaker. You can have the motor rebuilt or just replace the motor. Consult a pool professional to help out with this.

Noise at pump


Your problem is just a little vague. Noise could be several things including.... vibration can cause noise especially if the pump is not sitting solid on the ground. Cavitation around the impeller can cause the pump to be noisy. something stuck in the impeller can not only cause a number of irregular noises, but also affect performance. If the bearings are going bad they can make a number of bad sounds; anything from just sounding a little noisier than normal or a loud grumble to a loud high pitched squeal the can make a banshee turn and run.

We have a hayward pump and the motor keeps stopping and tripping the circuit breaker. What could it be?


The motor might be too powerful for the line it's on, (usually a pump should be on a somewhat dedicated line) no Ac's running on same breaker.
An extension cord longer then 6ft is also a suspect in not allowing the pump the draw enough power.
The pump may not be drawing enough water, overheating and tripping the breaker, or the motor might have rust on the inside causing the armature not to spin freely, and shut off. (usually motor will make a high pitch noise) while running)
