depending on the motors style of start-up, if you have a centrifugal type of start winding switch, your motor may be trying to start on the run winding due to a defective contact on the centrifugal switch, if it is a capacitor type starer, you might have a defective capacitor once again the motor is trying to start on the run winding, a way to find out is to be there and listen to the motor when it tries to start and trips the barker, if the motor emits a loud humming noise you have a fault with the start-up winding control device, if the picture supplied with your post is correct the capacitor is the long cylindrical thing at the top of the motor, you can remove this and bring it to a motor shop, they can test this for you

Check the stator for a ground-fault using a megger or a ohm meter. If it smoked it is likely even an ohm meter will show a ground; if it is not grounded check for resistance across the line connections. A typical single phase motor will be about 1 ohm. If it is zero ore some number below .5 the winding is shorted.
A winding that smokes is nearly always best to be replaced. Even if you get it running again it is only going to be for a short time. I would not change the horsepower if the pump had been keeping the pool clean prior to the mechanical and/or electrical trouble. If you do you'll need a new impeller too since changing one without the other is pointless.
Was the pump leaking as you began to have these troubles? Have you confirmed the incoming line voltage is 220V and stays at least 208V or more under load? You may have had an underlying problem with voltage drop or a leaking seal that caused the failure that you will want to address to prevent this from happening again.

SOURCE: Septic effluent pump loses prime
DONT TRY TO EMPTY THE TANK, RAISE THE FLOAT LEVEL. THIS STOPS THE PUMP FROM SUCKING AIR WITCH CAUSES THE PUMP TO LOSE PRIME,
WOW THAT WAS A EASY ONE. ....NEXT

My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem.
A pressure washer pump is lubricated by the water running though it. You never, ever even start one when not connected to an approved water source. If the manual says that it has to have that presure, don't risk it. I would get an auxillary pump and install on your tank.
Well, I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP if you think I'm deserving! :-) Thank you! Dane
