Take it to your local vac shop for repair. Switches are not that expensive.

Red on the left.
White in the middle.
Black on the right.
Green on the case/chassis ground or green screw with the small dashes on it.
If you don't have a white wire but the the green in the middle position.
White/red = far left

SOURCE: pool motor wiring
First and foremost, you need to check the Motor's voltage requirements, and match it to the voltage of the GFI you have connected to the House current.
The best way to do this is to use a volt meter at the GFI receptacle. Although it's likely the voltage at your GFI receptacle is 120Volts AC, you shouldn't guess on this. If you know what circuit breaker this GFI is using to get power.... you may be able to determine the GFI's voltage if you know how to distinquish between a single pole breaker and a two pole breaker (120Volts is derived from a sigle pole breaker, 240volts from a two pole breaker-which is twice the size of a single pole breaker).
Now the Motor: Most common Pool Motors are dual winding motors, on which, the voltage requirement could be changed to match the voltage supplied. On such a motor, there's a compartment where the cord is attached. Within this compartment, there's a configuration of screws or terminal points, and a related schematic which depicts the proper connections for each of the voltage options. By following these schematics, you will know how to connect the motor based on the available voltage supplied by your GFI protected receptacle.

You have a two-speed as indicated by the red jumper wire and brown wire left out for connection. These two wires connect to the speed switch with the red jumper to low speed and the brown wire to high speed. The black electrical cord wire connects to the L or COM terminal of the speed switch. The diagram below should give you better understanding on how the motor and the speed switch is wired.
The L/COM terminal makes contact with terminal 1 for low speed and terminal 2 for high speed. The OFF (0) is not shown.
