The belts rarely squeal in a dryer and don't get wet, never need cleaned. What you describe sounds like possibly worn out drum slides on the front of the drum housing. Maybe even worn out felt seals. StanStihl has a good point about the idler pulley and drum rollers might need a drop of oil on their bearings. Just a drop or two though, too much and lint can build up on them.

Yes. Replace the rear bearing cup that the drum sits down into. Do not oil. This cup takes a special grease that you can get with the cup. Also don't let anyone try to sell you the whole bearing kit. All you need is the cup and the grease.

Hello Loree Grudem - This can be the result of the shaft bearing and seal. They may have become worn and the transmission oil is creeping up to get in your water. Once this happens, it gets on your clothes to cause staining. Or possibly you have a buildup of fabric softener that comes loose and puts a greasy like substance in your water and on your clothing. Once you put your clothes in the dryer and the old fabric softener melts you will see these spots. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.
