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.

The likely cause is your belt slipping. The reason it is louder when you start is just that...It pulls harder to get the tub rolling and as it gains momentum the belt doesn't have to work as hard. Your belt is worn and will eventually break. When it slips, it is wearing at a greater rate, so you may want to go ahead and replace it.

Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:
Hope this helped and best wishes.

okay, you have a bad motor, this motor is caused by bad ventillation, instead of your lint going outside it is getting on your motor. i am sure your dryer was taking a long time to dry.
replace the motor and you will be fine.
