You have a whirlpool made kenmore dryer , there are 3 moving parts that can be making this noise , the belt tensioner and 2 wheels that the drum rolls on .
to get to these parts you go into the front of the unit. start by removing the 2 screws on the top where the lint screen inserts. then get a flat screwdriver to pry the top of the dryer away from the door panel it should have clips holding it down on both sides of the front.
after that you can see the drum with the top open like a hood of a car , look inside there are 2 screws holding each corner of the front of the dryer , they are 5/16 hex heads , remove these screws and the entire front door panel will come loose , pull the panel upward to release the lower clips holding it.
Now that this panel is removed look under the drum to see how the belt is held so you can put it back correctly , after removing the belt pull the dr om out and you will see the wheels , you can use motor oil to oil the center of the wheels and the belt tensioner. to get the drum back in set it on the wheels and roll it untill it falls into place and reassemble the rest if you have any other questions let me know and tell me how it works out.

    Disregard my post. Phil is correct. I was going on the assumption you has a GE dryer. My bad.

My dryer will run and dry clothes but as soon as the drum starts to turn it has a constant squeeling noise ( not a squeek like the wheels would cause) what is my problem and how can I fix it?

some dryers has a center bearing on the rear of the drum, once this bearing dries out it will make noise along as the drum turns.

It is making a loud squeeking noise when drying. I think that it is the bearings. How do i replace them from the front or back of the dryer.

you replace from the front but this dryer has no bearing. It has glides or rollers and idler pully. you need to take it about and check out these parts. replace the ones you need to.

Constant squeeking while drying clothes

It's most likely the roller bushigs/axles which need lubricating -- they've probably not failed yet, but will if ignored.

They squeak more when clothes are wet because of more weight.

I'd also lubricate the motor while your in there.

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.
