If its whining but still spinning, the bearings are done. If it just makes a loud noise, the capacitor could be bad or the bearings have seized.

Hayward pumps are poor quality. You're lucky to get ten years. In 4 years I've needed the motor replaced twice and the pump repaired. The motor is starting to whine again. Just a matter of time before it fails. Do yourself a favor and stay away from Hayward.

My Pentair WF-26 1.5 HP just started emitting a loud "whine" detectable above the regular pump noise. Looking through the window into the debris basket the water also looks more frothy than...


The loud "whine" you hear, does it sound like its a metal kind of "whine"? There are a couple of things it could be. Your impellar may have debris caught in it and to properly check and clean the impellar you will need to open up the pump and remove the diffuser and check/clean as needed. You can sometimes remove the basket and try to feel your way with a couple of fingers to the impellar but your only able to reach 10% of it. Whisperflo is an outstanding pump but very notorious for debris getting stuck in the impellar and the impellar breaking easily because it is plastic. If you have ran the pump without prime/no circulation you can easily have caused heat damage to the impellar. The other thing to check is the motor. Although it is only 2 1/2 years old the motor still could be going out. The bearings are the top noise makers when a motor is going bad. You will still have normal suction/circulation it will just be really loud when the motor runs each day.

I hope this helped. Please don't hesitate to submit any further questions you may have. I would be glad to help.

My magnum force pool pump was installed in dec. 2003. It still pumps very strong but is making a very loud noise when its on. It seems to be working fine except that its really, really loud. Any ideas?


More than likely your bearings are going bad. Pool pumps run many hours a day and if you get 5 years or more then that is about all you can expect. More than likely you can buy a new motor for just a little more than the price to replace the bearings but I suggest you contact a local electric motor shop to get a price on both. It will not hurt to continue to use the unit until it dies but the noise will drive you crazy and will really anoy your neighbors. You might want to install a smoke detector in the event the unit starts smoking or starts a fire.
