I say your lathe’s motor is on its way out.

You have already done the basic test of isolating the problem.
It all points to the lathe.

Can you turn the lathe by hand and turns like it normally does?
Remove the belt and spin the lathe. Does it feel the same?
Can you run the motor without the belt?
There may be bearing issue on the lathe.

Hopefully, someone else can give you some hope.
