Question about Hayward SP3015X20AZ 2 HP SUPER PUMP II SP3015X20AZ
Sounds like the thermal protector for the motor is tripping. This means there is a problem with the motor overheating.
It is a self resetting switch so when it cools off enough the pump will come back on. It also means you probably need a new pump.

SOURCE: my pump pressure is 10psi i cleaned the de filters they seem fine i have good floe out of my jets but when i hook the pool cleaner up pressure drops to almost nothing. could my impeller be the problem
The pressure you are reading is the pressure in the filter tank as water is pumped though it. When the filter is freshly charged, 9 PSI is a good pressure.
As the filter removes particles from the water the filter gets "dirty" -- it takes more pressure to push the water through it thus raising the PSI.
I think you are viewing this in reverse. Low filter pressure is "good" (as long as it stays above 8 PSI) -- as the filter cleans the water the PSI will increase -- when it gets to 15-20 PSI it needs to be back-washed and recharged.
The pressure drops when the pool cleaner is connected because pool cleaners always pull in air (in varying amounts) because of all the hose connections. This causes your filter/tank pressure to drop.

water level must be about the discharge (eyeball) in the pool to back wash. Check the hose connections to make sure that hoses off the the filer head are going to the right place Look for the words "Pump" , "pool" and "waste" molded into the valve. I've seen it a number of times where "Pump" and "pool" were connected the wrong way.

Inside the back case on the motor you'll see a white piece with two copper colored arms that have two silver points that almost touch. If these are rusty I've found that the motor won't turn over
. A quick fix is to take some 600+ grit Aluiminum oxide sandpaper and give each of those contact points a brisk sanding to remove any oxidation. This will help the points make a positive contact . Make sure while very obvious that the motor is unplugged first.

How old are the cartridges? They last 2-4 years depending on operating conditions beyond which no amount of cleaning can bring them back.
To check your impeller simply remove the six bolts holding the motor and moving parts of the pump into the housing and pull the motor back out. The diffuser sits over the impeller and it may be there or still in the housing. It aligns over the impeller with pegs and only fits properly in one orientation. If it is over the impeller pull it off and check all the impeller vanes for debris. Clean it if necessary.
If there is nothing in the impeller consider replacing the cartridge or the possibility you now have a clog somewhere else in the plumbing.
