For Whirlpool Evaporator Fan Motor (Part Number: AP3137520)

I have a noise that sounds like a small rattling engine coming from the area of the freezer evaporator fan. I'm assuming that the fan bearings are failing. Do you agree that this is likely a fan failure or could something else be causing the issue (such as a mounting grommet)? Since it's a fair amount of work to replace parts in the freezer box, I'd like high confidence that I'm not going to come up short on a part once I've got it disassembled. I'm also going to be ordering a condenser fan since I've verified that it has loose bearings (shaft is rattling) and is very loud. However, even with the condenser fan stopped, I still have a bunch of noise coming from the freezer evaporator area. Thereby, I'm guessing both fans need replacing. Box is only 6 years old...pretty disappointing! Please advise what part(s) you recommend for the freezer evaporator area.
