Hi welcome to just answer my name is Tom and i will be helping you today with your problem.

The sound is the back bearing is going bad. This is a common problem. The bearing is part of the outer tub. The back half of the outer tub needs to be replaced. It costs 500 dollars just for the tub.

If you can get it out you can replace just the bearing it is press fitted in. You can get it from your local automotive supply store. Just take the old one with you and match it up.
