Pinot, usually the squeak on these 417's is coming from the drum ball and plastic bearing. Sometimes they crack and sometimes just need to be greased. Go to this link http://www3.sears.com/ and enter your model number, upper left hand corner. Follow the link and click on view diagram, page 1. Look at number 12 and 34. This is the drum hitch and plastic bearing. Your husband will have to remove the top and once he has the belt off, pull up on the drum to get it off the bearing, (plastic coupling that the ball sets into. If it's not cracked and the ball is is good shape, just grease it. If it's cracked and the ball is a chewed up, replace them both. This job is done better with 2 people cause it's not the easiest deal. You can find the part numbers on the parts link right next to view diagram. Let the cat know if you need any more help, Catriver.

IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE MOTOR IS OVERHEATING AND SHUTTING ITSELF OFF. THAT IS ABOUT THE ONLY THING ON THE DRYER THAT WOULD SHUT IT OFF AND NOT ALLOW IT TO START AGAIN RIGHT AWAY, BUT LET IT START AFTER A WHILE. MAKE SURE THE MOTOR TURNS FREELY. IT SHOULD NOT DRAG OR HUMM WHEN TRYING TO START.

I also had a similar problem with my maytag dryer which is 3 1/2 years old. It was the idler lever assembly with pulley. The part number is 11222607JG and the cost is about $20.00. Hope this helps.
