I have the same problem with the same age Kenmore. I checked for clogs but there were none. The loud noise sounded like a vibration. The noise was so loud you almost couldn't be in the house when using the vacuum. What I found was, the outer rubber housing of the motor/fan was held together by electrical tape and split at the electrical tape (wow, that's a surprise!!). I taped the housing together with fresh tape but the motor housing continued to split when the filters got slightly clogged and higher pressure was generated inside the motor. I suspect that the split was causing some amount of air from the motor to be exhausted into the inside of the vacuum causing internal parts to vibrate and resonate.
I haven't been able to fix this problem. Unfortunately, the excessive vibration caused a control board to fail which controls the agitator. At this point the vacuum is useless. Poor design by Kenmore so I don't know if it can be fixed.
If you know of a solution, let me know

What does this noise sound like? If it's a squealing noise, chances are that it is a belt going bad. You can purchase a new belt at your local Sears, or probably even your local grocery/department store. The vacuum belt is easy to replace and inexpensive. Instructions for belt replacement are in the owner's manual, or sometime on the belt's package. Hope this helps... Please take a few seconds to rate how helpful this suggestion was. Thanks and good luck!
