I went out to backwash this morning and everything went as usual until I turned the pump off and switched to rinse. When I turned the pump back on, the motor made a mrrrrrr (or whiring sound) and did not rinse. I turned it off and went back to backwash and same thing. I quickly turned it off and the pump was hot to the touch. Is my motor burnt up? It's a Hayward II Super Pump 3/4 HP. Do you think this is going to have to replaced?
I'm so bummed. My pool is looking great and my water balance was perfect yesterday! I've sent an email to the landlord and hopefully he'll get someone over here to look at it soon. Is there anything I need to do in the meantime?
