Make sure the retainer clip was placed tightly in place. This is with the pin wheel right? Also make sure the skimmer is not rubbing up side anything in your sump.

Next time you take it apart make sure the pin wheel spins freely no stick what-so ever. I would also suggest to slightly sand the bottom were the magnet and the impeller meet. Oddly with these pumps, the slightest restriction will cause noise.
