Eheim 2213 noise increase?

May just be me but I was always impressed by the quietness of this filter. Lately it seems to be increasing in "white noise" i.e a hum of some sort..
Just cleaned it and checked impeller ect..

It isn't really an issue per se but more curious if when these age if this is a semi-normal issue..

Again it may just be me. I've added [email protected] (not quite set up) and the relay I use has a 60hZ "hum" at times. So I might have just sensitized myself to noise..

Sometimes the little rubber washer down in the impeller well get's worn and impeller does not spin as true as when washer is replaced.
I love the eheim classic's but hate the flimsy ceramic shaft that the impeller spins on.
Have broken them a few times.
