Bought Right Pump?

Had Gould/Century 1081 Pool Pump Duty, Part#8-150238-11 for inground pool/spa (DE, indoor pool), replaced with: Hayward 2 HP Max-Flo Pump (self priming) Part# 7-186856-01. Connected, motor runs, very little, to no filtration. Water won't stay in pump/strainer housing. Wrong motor or connected wrong????

check your wiring , that motor comes pre wired to run 220 vac you will have to change the wiring at the back of the motor if you intend to run it 110 vac , there is a wiring diagram there simple to follow.

If your wiring is ok check your plumbing size on the suction and returns to the pool. A 2 H.P. Max-flow pump is a lower end pump in the Hayward family but can still move a lot of water. Also I would take apart your DE filter and give it a good cleaning, then add the proper amount of DE to the skimmer.
