possible the bearings are going. place yor hand in the bottom of the drum and run the drum around and feel the bearings for any wear/ noise/vibration. alteratively the bearings in the motor could have gone and spinning with the belt removed would prove this.

This is the electronics whisteling. This is 'normal' on all electronically controlled machines. On some, it is louder than on others - even of the same model. As long as it continues to function properly, I wouldn't worry about it. If it's about to go out of warranty, you might try and see if the manufacturer will cover the replacement cost. But it's definitely not worth paying $300 to eliminate the whistle.

check the following -
If your dryer is noisy, check these:
Rear drum bearing
Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.
Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.
Rear drum bearing
Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.
Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

In the cradle where the center drum bearing fits is a plastic bearing mounted on a metal bracket. When that plastic bearing wears down the ball begins to contact the metal bracket. Bad things are ahead also. Because now as the drum turn the bracket is cutting into the ball.
