Could it be that the top bearing on the spindle is worn? If you apply pressure to the spindle while the motor is turning, does it have any effect?

I have a Talkophone which has had motor noise problems; and the culprit seems to be that bearing. Could you try bushing it?

It seemed to have a lot of slop with the old slightly bent spindle. The noise went away when lowering the needle on the record. If it still did that it wouldn't be so bad.

Replacement straight spindle, no slop, and now the noise is continuous.

I may have to work with finding softer rubber isolators.
