It sounds like it got some air stuck in it some how. Mine are pretty finicky after they've been pulled apart if they haven't been filled completely to the top (overflowing) with the hoses full of water. You have to give it some really good shakes and push the prime button repeatedly to expel it all.

I understand about the air.... But it was making the swooshing noise BEFORE i took it apart. It had been running a month, and then within the last few days it started making the noise and not flowing properly. The reason I took it apart was so it would stop making the noise and start flowing properly.

One of mine has issues with the impeller housing coming loose and knocking causing the flow to reduce.
Glad it's working for you know though
