Hi,
Take the cover off of the capacitor...it is the bump on the top of the motor...then look on the capacitor and find the numbers that end with mfd. that is the size or rating of the capacitor...also then look for the voltage of the capacitior...you need to match that also...there are so many different motors used, even for the same pump that it is hard to say for sure what you may need there with out looking at it.
You can do that and then you know you are getting the correct cap for your motor...
My guess is that you are looking for something in the range of a 20mfd 370volt cap. but please check it out for sure they vary alot!!

Whisperflo pump exploded


I am as of yet unaware of any means in which a pool heater will make a pump explode, but am intrigued, certainly. Actually, I have never heard of any pump "exploding".
I would assume that there must have been some restriction that caused some sort of failure. Can you be more specific about what kind of damage occurred?

When I turn on my pool filter with a Pentair WhisperFlo 2 hp pump, the psi has jumped from 18 to 30. There's nothing visible in the baskets in the skimmers or in the WhisperFlo. Where could the resistance...


If your pressure has gone up, the problem will be on the discharge side of the pump. First, make sure that your gauge is not malfunctioning.
Next see if all valves after the pump are set properly and that the three way valves or backwash valve are not broken inside.

Pump switching off for about 10 -20 seconds, then back on. Hapens about every hour


the little house on top of the motor has a capacitor in it 90% of the time thats whats wrong with this motor it's eather a 30 or a 35 mf .
pull this off the motor and search your area for pool pump motor repair, free testing ,use your zip code in the search, ask if they can test a capasitor for you.. wait to take capacitor off till the motor cools off
about a $20.00 fix

Whisperflo Pump 1.5 Hp problem


The pump is probably fine the motor is the problem. If it just hums it might just be the capacitor on top of the motor. Don't know how long it sat there not able to start. Was the motor extremely hot ? If it got too hot may have damaged the motor. Motor is replaceable without replacing the pump head.
