Pump motor vibrating more then normal

I have a 1994 Marquis hot tub and recently noticed more vibration from the pump motor then normal. Its enough to keep vibrating the cover off my filter in the hot tub. The motor is a Ultra jet model PUUS22615822OH 2.6 HP. My question is before I purchase a new motor is it probably the bearings in the motor causing the vibration or would it be something else. And would it be cheaper to get the motor fixed or buy a new one......a new one is $279. Im pretty sure it is the pump motor because I had a similar problem last year with the circulation pump motor and replaced that one. I guess the motor is close to 20 yrs old.
