When mine went, it started getting louder. Then it started making a
grinding noise as opposed to the whirring sound. I ordered a new pump
and while I was awaiting its arrival; mine stopped altogether. The
repair is a real DIY and takes about 45 minutes. The list's library
should contain the instructions.

Good Luck
