Recently my Pentair Whisperflo WF-26 (1.5HP, single speed) cleaning pump quit working. Turn cleaner on, pump motor does not start, not even any sounds. I got on Youtube and found to first check the capacitor. It tested bad. Put in a replacement this morning. Same thing - nothing. Next checked, on both ends, that the shaft freely spins. It does.
Not sure what to do next. Either the motor is (electrically?) damaged at some point past the capacitor or no electric is getting to the capacitor. Seem logical?
Your help is appreciated.
