wiring Hayward pool pump -- neutral wire

Hello -
I am sure this question has been asked before -- where does the neutral go on a pump? Is it supposed to be connected to the ground?

Check the wire diagram on the side of the pump and in the owner’s manual.

I have finally found an answer -- and not on this forum. If the pump is wired or set for 120vac, L1 is hot, L2 is neutral. If your pump is set for 240vac, then I undestand that L1 and L2 are both hot. I don't know where the neutral goes, if at all, on a 240vac pump.

most motors 1/2 hp thru. 1.0 hp can run on 120 vac or 220 vac , on a dual voltage motor they come ready to run on 220 vac , if you intend to run it on 220 vac [ which draws less elec. ] no neutral is used , one load is connected to line 1 and the other load is connected to line 2 , however if you want to run it on 120 vac you will have to switch wiring at the rear of the motor , the diagram for doing this is on the sticker affixed to the side of the motor.
