Response to A single phase motor such as this will only spin in one direction. A three phase has the ability to be wired incorrectly and spin the wrong way. Please check to make sure the impeller is clear of any debris and the pump back lid is secured and the o-ring beneath is lubed properly. It sounds more like an air leak than a motor issue.
