It could be bearing or if it has an internal centrifugal switch to start the motor, this could have a broken spring.
Either way stripping down the motor should show what the problem is.

There should be no perceptible play in the bearings but even so they can become noisy with age. Bearings are virtually always standard parts and so there is no need to go back to the manufacturer for such spares.
I can recommend both 'Bearing Boys' and 'Arc Euro Trading' for bearings. Other suppliers are possibly just as good!

You can really only assess bearing play once you have got the rotor out of the machine and can feel each one independently.

That link is a standard one I have in all my messages and possibly won't help you a lot with this particular problem.

Good luck

Bob
