There are many different opinions out there on when to replace your pool filter cartridges. Typically, on a time scale alone, it is recommended between 12-24 months depending on your unique situation. Amount of usage, pool chemical maintenance, amount of debris such as dirt, leaves, and grass that get in the pool, whether or not you have pets that like to swim in the pool. All these different factors contribute to the life expectancy of a pool filter cartridge.

Or maybe the parts that cause the spinner to move are already deteriorating. In that case, you may have to replace some of those parts with new ones so your machine can effectively clean again.
