You tried a belt.

The noise happens when the belt is installed and properly tensioned on the drive pulley.

It is not unusual for the large pulley to wear, doing so in the center splines that  grip the spinner shaft. It also could be the early signs of bearing failure. My suggstion is to wait and see what happens next. If it is indeed a motor issue, you'll know in a few weeks or so.Same if it's a bearing.

Yes I replaced the belt. I noticed where the old one was on the motor before I took it off and put the new one back on in the same spot. The paper with the belt to have it centered on the big pulley and it is. As for the tension, not sure about that. Mine doesn't have an adjustment. The paper said the earlier ones have an adjustment and then the later ones doesn't. I have the later evidently cause there is no adjustment on there.

I guess I will just have to wait and see.
