The front drum support has wore out. Reach your hand in the tub and puch up on it. If it moves up and down a lot the support is wore. Buy a new support and front slides and it will stop squeeling.

    Its not an easy job but not super hard either. If you get your model number and go to the parts section at sears.com and put the model number in and you can pull up a diagram to see where it is located. Front drum support and slides.

Dryer starts fine, runs fine, heats fine, but makes a clicking / rattling sound while running. Sound is coming from rear, like where metal tube is connected.
