Your pump is overheating. Check the current draw of your pump during operation. The amperage should not go above its current rating.
Remember Power (Watts)= Voltage (VAC) x Current (Amps). For a 100 Watt motor running at 120 VAC then the current I should see is approximately, 1.2 Amps. If I see 2 amps draw on the motor then I now its about to burn up or another problem has occurred. Values higher then 1.5 times the nominal operating current shows problems with motor or motor operation (excessive load, bad bearings, exc.)
Make sure that the pump is fully primed during entire operation. Note: Pumps hate cavitation and dry run times!
If all of the above is ok, then you may need to increase the capacity of your pump or place two of the same pumps in series for the extra head pressure.

Which side is the inlet side filter or pump?

Water goes into the center inlet of the pump first. Then it exits the pump from the side outlet and goes into the backwash valve. From there, it goes either into the filter, backwash, drain or waste depending how the valve is set.
