Question about Dryers
When I turn on the fan, it makes a screeching high pitch noise. The manual states that the motor bearings are permanently sealed and do not require additional lubrication.
Likely the main drum bearing in the back. I have seen these go bad, and loud squeaky noise tells you. You can get a new main bearing and replace. It is in the center of the back of the drum, accessee through back panel of dryer usually.

Sorry for the delay in response. Electrically, there should be no potential hazard since there would be no more "juice" running through the circuitry.

The 1,5 year new dryer makes a terrible screaching noise when it has a load of clothes in it. It still dries fine, no problem with the heating element. No noise without clothes, only when it has a load.

I don't think they can be, but, also take a look at the fan bearing assembly too. You should be able to isolate if the noise is from the motor bearings or blower bearings.
