More often that not you probally had a leaking seal and the water is causing the bearing to rust and make noise. At this point you will need to have the motor rebearingd or get a new motor. depending on the age and condition of the one you have.

I just got a 2hp Waterway 48 hiflo pump. The discharge is facing up can it be rotated to the side or is it fixed?

There a four bolts that run through the motor into the wet end, or pump. Use a 1/4" nut driver and loosen the bolts until they are free of the wet end, then you can rotate the wet end so the discharge is face to the side. Tighten the bolts and your done.

I need to know the pressure the pump should be at when on i have an aboveground pool with a waterway pump.

There is no standard pressure your pump should operate at. Instead it will vary based upon the hydraulic load of the system and it's components. A range common to AG pumps/filters is between 10 and 16. As the filter gets dirty it will rise over time and then you'll need to clean the filter. A rule of thumb is 8-10 pounds over the 'clean' pressure you should clean the filter.

I have a Waterway 48-Frame 2HP 115v pool pump for my above ground pool. I just purchased it about 2 weeks ago from Rec Warehouse. It was working good no problem for about a week and half then all of of...

Check to see that the pool pumps mounting is secure. Loose mounting could cause the motor to run loudly. It could be bearings rubbing or a bent shaft. If it is new, this should not have happened. If you check the mounting and feel that it is secure, I would return the pump to an authorized Waterway service agent and let them look to see if the bearings or shaft are damaged. I would do this quickly while you can still return the pump if its defective.
