Pump noise

edited April 16 in Domestic Hot Water
This week our pump started making weird noise like sad dove. Tried to bleed air, no hissing sound and water starts coming right away, but sound stops while bleeding.

edit: it makes sound only in 3rd "gear".
edit 2: after 15 min. or so 2nd "gear" also singing songs but way quieter

Many thanks ahead.

    What type of pump? And how old? If it's multiple speed pump it must be a wet rotor pump. Those are water lubricated and can be damaged by dirt etc in the water

    Thanks guys for your thoughts. It seems there is a lot of dirt in the system. We bought the accumulation tanks used. Will keep cleaning the filters and we have spare pumps luckily
