No there is no switch in the motor.Correct voltage is done by hooking up incoming power to a combination of internal wires or contacts.

There should be a wiring diagram on the cover where the hookup is.Or on the outside case of the motor.
The high and low speed doesnt make sence to me.Check the rpm of the motor it should be one rpm continueous.
Unless this is a Hvac motor and not a pool pump motor.Possible you may have been sold the wrong motor.
Usually a pool pump is 115 volts 1 speed and 1 rpm continuos duty.Unless you specify 230 volts.

There is a small portion that describes the line connections. If you need the internal wiring diagram you will need to contact me thru www.arrowmotor.net and well get it from AOSmith for you.

It sounds like the bearings are going bad on the motor. Does it make the same sound when it is running?

I'm guessing that you replaced the motor that goes to the pump, not the pump itself. You know the motor works just fine. Is the motor rotating in the correct manner(clockwise or counterclockwise) in relation to the rotation of the pump? Have you checked the pump to see if the impeller is working/rotating? Is the motor hooked up to the pump correctly, so that the motor is turning the impeller? Are all connections to the pump tight, so there are no suction leaks? Have you primed the pump and purged it of any air locks?

We have a Model 2801052103 Franklin Electric submersible pump, 1/2HP 230 Volt. It starts and stops when using water frequently. System is 30+ years old, could the well be bad?
