The motor has been good for some time but just noticed today a whirling sound coming from the motor/pump. I'm trying to decide the steps of fixing. I have checked the propeller for debri but no issues. I also removed the difuser and checked for rubbing. I will be replacing the difuser because of wear around seal but I ran it without difuser and it is still making the whirling sound.
Whirling sound from motor/pump

Was the pump strainer full of water when it was making the whirling sound? If the pump isn't fully primed, it can make a whirling sound.
Sounds from the motor are typically bearing related. The bearings can be replaced, but most homeowners are more comfortable with replacing the motor.
