My acs are making noise like there is sand in them. Working fine it just sounds gritty. I have rinsed the motor and took it apart. Is there anything else I can try?

I had a problem with this with 2 topfin 20 hang over filters and sand.

Water pressure like rest it on the tub floor and let the water hit it. It fixed the problem, my filters would stop working, and had a grinding noise with it too. I didnt take the motor apart just how it was disassembled in the box when I bought it. Like the fan spindle and tubes and cleaned where water usually is
