New pump making high pitched noise

Our pump was tripping the electrical- turns out the motor was fried and we just replaced it with a brand new pentair whisperflo. Now the pump is making a very high pitched noise that is crazy annoying. Any ideas what this could be on a brand new pump?

Post a clip. Is there any air evident in the basket? was the pump properly primed when installed? Occasionally you get a pump with faulty bearing so the installer may just need to warranty it out and replace it. If they offer to repair it I'd decline. Although it’s easy to replace the bearings, you bought a new, not reconditioned pump So put a new one back in.
