    My filter has been making a weird popping sound, almost like it thinks it’s a washing machine.

    It’s a Aqueon QF
    Had it for a year now, previous owner had it longer.
    Could it just be old? It’s not clogged, I just cleaned it out last week, and it worked just fine. It’s currently running, but making that sound.

    Try cleaning it again. It might have hair wound on the shaft.

    I haven't seen anything inside of it, but I certainly will remove the materials inside.
    Time for new floss, and I should probably just add a bag of zeolite while I'm at it.

    I agree. See how the impeller shaft is. Maybe when it's reassembled it will be more secure again.

    I took the impeller out two days ago, it was clean with no cracks or scratches on it.
    The filter looks new but makes this sound.
