Expert:  Machinc replied 1 year ago.
It sounds like your impeller is not functioning.
It is held on by a single locking screw
If the screw is loose the impeller will not work
or the impeller could be broken.
If it is broken it will not spin enough to move the
Water.
The screw should be reverse thread so be careful
Taking it loose.
The impeller is a replacement part .'
If you are not comfortable replacing it yourself you
may want to take the pump to a shop to have it
professionally repaired.
i will be glad to answer any questions you may have Customer

NOTE:
Removing the old impeller can be
a bit tricky but it is done at tines by the
homeowner.
'
Having the pump professionally
repaired will possibly give you the
option of having a warranty on the
new impeller.
Thought you might want to weigh the
options.
