Sounds like a bearing or the drive belt. Try turning the empty drum by hand. If it sounds normal you probably just need to replace the belt. If it make strange sounds when you turn it by hand then its probably the bearing.
The belt isn't a big deal but a bearing probably is.
All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix: Paw Paws GE dryer repair page
Sounds like your motor and/or pulley assembly are bad. Try turning the drum by hand. If it turns with some effort then you may have a drum bearing going bad. Does the squeaking sound start right away? Or does it start when the dryer warms up? If so then the bearing is going. If you can get to it spray WD40 for a quick fix.
Depends how technical you are. More than likely it is the rollers (depending on who made the Kenmore). Go to www.apwagner.com and you can get the parts there. Or if you are unsure about taking it all apart, call for service.
