When I noticed my DMF gooing bad, it was a very distinct chatter, clanking and vibration. To me it almost seemed as if the motor wasn't running on all cylinders.
The noise comes and goes right, usually at start up, when in neutral, and hard shut down.
Like Madpogue stated remove the cover, use a big flat blade screw driver and if both flywheels move easily. Move them back and forth fast and see if the noise sounds similar. If it moves that's most likely your problem if and when the clutch its pressed in it stops it's dam there your problem.
If that it's the problem you can do the DMF to SMF swap. Others can chime in on the brands you can use. I choose the Autozone SMF flywheel and clutch components. Been doing very well. Any questions on how it's performing ask away.
I'll see if I have a video of when it was acting up. So you can compare it to your noise.
