The squeaking that you hear is probably the belt slipping. it needs to be replaced. they are easy to find on the internet, just search by your model number of dryer and search for parts. if you need directions on how to change it, let me know

Why does my Estate dryer sqeek or squeal so loud

I just had a similar problem with my Whirlpool dryer. It would squeek very loudly and then chirp a bit and then go quiet.
Took the back off and found that the belt tensioner arm pulley that drives the drum turning had stopped spinning. Sprayed some silicone on the hub a couple of times and it freed up and is working again. Everything is fine for now. I'm going to order a new part 'cause I know it will just happen again when the silicone wears out.

My Hotpoint tl61p tumble dryer made a loud bang, and now will not work, the timer justs buzz's? can anyone help please?

The load bang you heard was the idler pulley slamming into the frame more than likely. this is because your belt broke removing the tension suddenly. Put a new belt on and you'll be fine.

My dryer is making a very loud, constant squeeking/squilling sound. I took apart the front and top and examined the belt. The belt is fine! The dryer works but even wth my laundry door closed, it is really...

In the back of the dryer there is a ball bearing unit that it rotates on... I have changed these before,
and they all made the same noise you described.Most dryers ( ALL TYPES ) have the same basic design.......This should be your problem....I think they are about 30 or 40 dollars..kinda hard to change will need plenty of room to work in and maybe an assistant to help hold it in place because it has to be centered.

Loud squeeking sound while operating

Possible slipping belt. Probably time to replace it (The belt).

Loud squeeking sound. Figure its the back

Well I do not know which brand you have but I have pictorials on all kinds of dryers at my website. I am guessing yours is a GE. Check out my repair PICTORIAL.
Note: Not pictured is a WE3X75 bearing that goes on the rear of the drum and fits into the center hole pictured above.
WE3X75 drum bearing.

Are you sure that is the model number? I can`t find that model number anywhere. Please check the tag on the machine. This tag should also have the serial number on it.

GE DBXR463GB Gas Dryer is squeaking loudly when it runs

one of 2 things can be wrong. Back bearing if bad will sound like a bird chirpping, front bearing glide will be more constant squeek. both need to be fixed by experienced tech.
