This summer, I've noticed a faint and constant friction noise when I first startup the mower. It is also a little slower to get going to full speed, but it cuts perfectly fine still. I clean the underside after every time I mow and this noise happens even on the first startup with a clean underside. Could there be some kind of rust build-up inside the motor? I store the mower in my concrete floor garage and it gets humid in there once in a while. Unable to find anything on this site or the internet about this. I've never hit any rocks or large sticks with it so I cannot think of any reason why it would be doing this except debris/rust buildup inside.
