IT IS MORE THAN LIKELY A STUCK DRUM ROLLER OR IDLER PULLEY. I HAVE SEEN IN WORST CASE SCENARIOS WHERE IT HAS BEEN THE MOTOR ITSELF WHEN SUBJUCTED TO LOTS OF LINT AND DUST FROM PLUGGED VENTING. I WOULD CHECK THE FIRST TWO AS THEY ARE THE MOST COMMON. DO NOT OIL THEM.

Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise


The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

My dryer has a high pitch squeal when starting up. It would go away after a few minutes when it warmed up but now the squeal is getting worse and lasting longer


Kevlar 'slip strip' on which the front of the drum runs may need to be replaced. Try turning drum gently by hand to guage whether or not it is turning freely.

High pitch squeal-metal on metal contact


A lot of dryers have plastic or felt slides on the drum. This is to reduce friction as it rotates. They are probably worn off.
