Hi.
Could be dry drum bearing or jockey pulley dearing. take the rear cveroff the back of the dryer, and you will see the rear drumshaft and bearing.
Squirt some wd40 on the bearing, hopefully.this will cure the squeak.

drum rollers/glides, may be that the motor needs to be oiled, in which case you will need to unplug dryer and drill a hole in the casing not to deep just to where it goes through the casing, then moisten the cotton fabric. Hope this helps Tim:

The squeak is actually the rear bearing WE3X75.

The squeak is most likely from the drum support rollers or the drum bearing. If it's the rollers, they're fairly easy to replace and often a drop of lubricant will solve the problem. This is just one supplier of such parts:

Dryer is squeaky. The heavier the load the louder the squeak


Might be a worn plastic bearing on the ceter hub. I have repair pictures HERE

Ge gas dryer that sweaks as drum rotates. the heavier the load the louder the noise


the drum sits on a couple of roller bearings. thats where the squeak is coming from. its a couple of hour job to change them. as far as dryer repairs go this is big job. I recommend finding a new machine although it will still work for quite a while.

Check your vent it may be stopped up this will cause the top to get overly hot and the bearing to squeak

Condenser dryer


doubt if squeak is related to not drying. if you are getting heat (you say heating element is ok) take out condensor and hose it down till thoroughly free of lint. check appliance has adequate ventilation as well
