The mechanical seel is bad. These seals normally last quit a few seasons, as long as they don't freeze or allowed to run dry. You will have to disasemble the motor from the pump, and then remove the impeller from the motor. Depending on model and brand, most of these parts are plastic and one must be very careful not to break. The seal could either be purchased from a pool company or from a place like Graingers. If you don't want to do it yourself you could take your pump to a pool company or a motor repair shop.

Spa pump k55mygrd-8367


Most common and likely situation with this,... mechanical pump shaft seal has failed. This allowed water to enter into the electrical motor and lubrication from the front bearing had been washed away. The purpose of the shaft seal is to keep the water OUT of the motor!
Now as motor spins, bearings with less lubrication gets a lot hotter!
And... When metal gets hot, it gets soft! What was once perfectly round and lubricated, is now getting oblong or square and not lubricated. Square bearings don't spin well and are not as quiet as round bearings! Hence your loud noise. Oil on the shaft will do nothing. You either need to replace both bearings, front and back, and absolutely replace the shaft seal or, replace the motor and the shaft seal.

No cooling water shooting from the visual indicator port - less than 6 month old 115 short shaft motor purchased new from dealer


if you do not see water shooting out, there are a couple of things to check, open the case and remove the hose and check for debris --- the fitting itself could also be blocked, clear hose and fitting and re-install -- test --
if no water is flowing after that, then there could be a chance that the water pump impeller is bad, ( note: if water impeller is bad the motor will get hot and the over heat light will come on ' red ' ), turn off and replace the impeller.

Whirlpool Pump - Hums, no water flow...


The impeller and/or motor shaft is stuck or seized. If accessible you can try rotating the motor shaft with a visegrip plier or similar tool to see if it will come lose. Otherwise you should consider having the pump taken out and overhauled. Often the shaft seal begins leaking and result in water damage to the motor bearings. Bearings can be replaced, but compare labor and parts for overhaul to simply replacing the whole pump.

arlenekc : The water pump needs replaced.

malibu66,: Replacing the pump is not difficult at all.

In the above cases, Tilt the machine back so you have access to the bottom. (It there is a soft bottom plate you will have to remove it.) The pump it located on the bottom of the motor and is held on by two clips. Remove the hoses ant then the clips. The pump should slide off the motor shaft. If the pump does not come off then you will have to break it off. DO NOT pry on the motor or shaft. Once the pump is off check the motor shaft for any rust or build-up. This will have to be removed before a new pump is installed.

Line the pump up to the motor shaft to get it in place and put the unit back together then check the operation.

LITTLEGIRL4 Open the lid and find the water flume where the water comes in. This flume gets out of position sometimes. Start filling the machine and watch the flume. If there is water dripping or running down the sides toward the rear then the flume is not in position or has been damaged.

Check and make sure that there is nothing blocking the pump inlet underneath the mesh removable filter. It should be making a whirring sound like it's trying to pull water in in a cycle. If it's not making that noise your pump is shot.
