YouTube of my Noisy Motor. Too Noisy?

Also discharged and then tested the start capacitor. Got correct readings on meter.

So, I'm repairing the Cherry E13 switch inside the lid switch assembly (which I'd jumpered a while back) and am putting the machine back together and letting Wifey have at it. A full test load of laundry ran flawlessly this a.m. except for that low-speed bearing knock.
I'll observe carefully as I can over the coming days and see if the failure occurs again. I'll post if it does, hopefully with more detailed symptoms.
Thanks all for your help, I really appreciate it!!

After these many years it may be impossible to remove the basket due to corrosion on the shaft, but I think you should give it a try. Anybody in the house missing a sneaker?
Personally don't think it's the motor but that would be my second suspect.

The motor is noisy, for sure, as the You Tube video shows, but I don't know if the noise is related to a functional issue that might create occasional added resistance. My wife ran about four heavy loads of laundry today (it's a large-cap machine) and the thing ran like a champ, motor chirring away.
We will keep an eye (ear) on it! If other issues develop, it may finally be time to buy that spanner nut tool.

Or just replace the motor when the noise becomes unbearable
Yup, that's the current plan! I do frequent eBay and have found "good" used motors for about $60. Craiglist, I never thought of for appliance parts because it's not set up for non-local buying.
