Unhappy Pool Pump Question

We have a inground pool, the pool pump comes on humms, water starts pumping out the jets in the pool, then the pump shuts off. Do you think the pump is gone?

It sounds like the built-in thermal overloads are shutting the pump motor down. It could be a bad motor, low voltage, a bad capacitor, or something inside the pump that's causing the pump to "drag".
My experience with pool pump motors says that it's probably something with the motor itself.
