Double check the wiring installation. One wire wrong will stop it. Don't let it hum! Compare old motor to new, are they the same voltage? Can you rotate the motor by hand? It should be free.

NO! You need to convert the wires to 120 as shown in the directions then wire in your 120V line and it will run normally.

Yeah, sounds like the bearings/bushings are shot.

Your best solution is to take it to a local small motor repair shop and have it rebuilt for under $100. Replacement is about $300. There is almost nothing you can do on your own... Sorry

Have you checked for voltage at the pump motor? Did you wire it correctly? Is the motor 110V or 220V. Did you match the motor to your existing voltage?

If your getting good pressure at the pump Then the next thing to check is the wall screen. It will be in the wall of the pool behind the quick disconnect fitting for the cleaner hose. This is proballoy the problem but if it is clogged it will clog again and you will need to find the cause to fix the problem. Good luck.

there is not a reset on the pump itself. It does have a high limit that shuts the motor off if it overheats but will reset on it's own when it cools down. Check to see if it might be tied in with a GFCI or a sub-breaker somewhere.

Pull the back cap off the motor and hold the shaft as you spin off the impeller. The rest is straight forward enough.

The label on the motor has a wiring diagram for both 110 and 220

Who checked the cap and how did they check it? If the cap is out the motor will buzz and not turn when started

Your bearing are failing. Replacing them and the seal at a local electric motor repair shop will likely cost around $50.

Get a screwdriver (or something strong like that) that is the diameter of the pipe only. Use a torch to heat it up and then press it into the pvc...might take a couple times to get a good indent, and then turn....it is threaded 3/4" pvc....some installers will actually glue this fitting in the pump - which render it unuseable in this situation....
