That unfortunatly is the rear bearing of the unit going (and now seems to) bad. I hate to say it, but you have to replace the WHOLE outer shell (tub assembly) assembly. This is a very, very expensive item (around $300.00 just for part alone, no labor) and out of all the years I have worked on these units, I have never had a customer replace one due to the cost. It usually is the death sentence of the Neptune. Problem is, these bearings are not a seperate peice to replace (which would have made this repair somewhat cheap and practical). Sorry, I guess. I dont have anyone in mind who might have a used one, but its worth a look. Dont know how handy you are, but its a pretty involved job as well. Good Luck!!!!
