Question about Samsung DV331AGW Dryer
Dryer makes a squeaky noise as its drying the clothes. One yr old, 3 weeks past warranty. The Belt broke, we ordered and replaced it, assuming that it was also the reason for the squeaky noise we had been hearing, but even after replacing the belt, the dryer now works fine, but is making the same very loud squeaky noise as the drum turns

YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK THE MOISTURE SENSOR THIS WAS WHAT WAS WRONG WITH MINE THE GLOW ROD WOULD HEAT UP BUT NO GAS TO LIGHT

Remove the vent completely and clean it out 100 percent. Elbows (corner bends) will hold more than you think causing the dryer to keep the heat off. The sensors for the newer style dryers detect plugged up vents and shut down the heating modes. If cleaned and still no heat the spark ignitor has gone bad

SOURCE: the drum stopped spinning on
Welcome to FixYa.
Yes it does have a belt. I'd say your assessment is almost bang on, based on your description and my experience. I've seen this many, many times...though the belt usually doesn't break it just comes off. Very common for Samsung dryers for whatever reason.
**Unplug the unit before proceeding...safety first**...
The good news is if it's accessible from the back you can simply remove the small panel around the exhaust tube as shown here,
if it's not you'll need to go from the front...do-able just a little more involved, let me know.
Once in the back the belt should look like this when routed properly, with the "V" grooves towards the drum and motor pulley.
Hope that moves you forward...or even better, to the finish line, lol.
Let me know what you find. If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro.
I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well. Good luck.
