Any listing under "motor repair or rebuilding" should be able to help you. One word of advice, just get a new motor. You will be lucky to get a 30 day warranty and some shops take weeks to do the replacement. Also the newer motors have a higher service factor rating and are a whole lot more energy efficient.

Help! Just opened my pool and the pump/motor (which is only 2 years old) is very noisy. Sounds like it could be the bearings. Do call someone to the house, disconnect and take to a repair shop, ord

Disassemble the pump to the point where you can see the whole impeller. Then turn the power back on to verify that it is the bearings, and not trapped debris causing the noise. If it is the bearings the short answer is to replace the motor.

Bearing failure is usually related to a leak at the pump seal. This results from either a faulty seal installation, or the pump running excessively hot (from running w/o water).

When replacing the motor carefully examine the seal plate (where the seal is set) front and back for any cracks or deformity. If the new seal doesn't set exactly, it will leak.

Haywood pump is making a high pitched noise

Inside the pump is a set of bearings that help the components of the motor run smoothly. When they become clogged with dirt and debris or wear down, your pool pump may get very noisy or stop working altogether. This high pitched squealing you are hearing is fairly consistent with bearing failure.
Replacing the bearings in your pool motor:
1. Turn off power to your pool pump by unplugging it from the power source or by turning off the circuit breaker. 2 Remove the plumbing from the pump. Take off the unions on the suction and discharge side using a wrench. Loosen the pool pump from the fitting holding it to the ground and move it to a comfortable area to work in. 3 Remove the housing from the pool pump and separate it from the motor. Look at the owner's manual for your pump to see the specifics on how to remove the pool pump housing, since each model is different. Usually you will need to loosen a bolt with a socket wrench and loosen the metal band that holds it in place. 4 Remove the four bolts that hold the pump together. These are located on the hand bell of the frame. Remove the motor end bells. 5 Pull out the motor armature to expose the ball bearings. Insert your ball bearing puller to pull out the old ball bearings. Inspect them for damage. Replace the old ball bearings with new ones after greasing them with bearing grease, and reassemble the pump.
To be honest with you, I don't even let our technicians replace the bearings in the field anymore. It is a little difficult and really, how many people have a "ball bearing puller" laying around their house.
It might be best to have the motor seperated from the pump housing and take it to your local pool outlet or motor shop. Installation of the bearings will be a breeze for them and make sure that no damage is done to the shaft of while the new bearings are being installed. Also, you should ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS replace the shaft seal whenever you take the pool pump motor apart. This will ensure a positive seal for the motor and minimize the opportunity for leaks to occur.
Please note, this should ONLY be attempted if you are comfortable with the instructions and taking apart the pump, have the necessary parts and tools to make the repair, and are familiar with ensuring that everything is back together properly!
Please take a moment to let me know if this answered your problem or not! All of us here a Fix Ya do our best to help each person with their questions, and we know that we may not always be "perfect", but we do try!

Your pump shaft seal is leaking and has flushed the grease out of the bearings. Any reputable spa or pool company should be able to replace the bearings and the seal kit for far less than the cost of a new pump. Approx $150.00 to re and re bearings and seal kit.

Alot of rain flooded the area arond the pump twice which shut off motor is quit noisy?Whaddyathink??

the water has damaged the bearings, it's only a matter of time before the bearings get louder or seize all together. You can have the bearings replaced or get a new motor installed. A bearing replacement is 2/3 the cost of a new motor and the rest of the components are still old and perhaps damaged from the flood. Your call, I'd go for a new motor.

I have a Hayward max-flo ii pool pump and it is very noisy. I already replaced all seals because it was also leaking. Are the bearings the cause of the noise? If so how do I replace bearings?

The bearings have likely lost their lubrication and have failed. You may be able tot find a local electric motor repair shop to replace the bearings. It really is not a diy project. However, if you can't find a local shop to do it, most folks replace the motor.

Just opened pool for 3rd year, I cleaned the filter added new powder, motor very noisy and must bump the filter every 30 minutes

Filter needs to be disassembled, cleaned, acid washed and reassembled. Motor probably needs to have new bearings installed or be replaced

Sounds like the bearings but uou would need to take it to a motor shop to have this done. This will cost less than the spectility tools needed to do the work.

Pump Very Noisy Have dismantled moving parts and no difference so deduced that it must be electric motor, how do I replace brushes?

sounds like you need to replace the bearings. You may be better off either taking the motor to be rebuilt or getting a new motor with a warranty. It is a process to replace the bearings if you have never done it before.
