Your issue is as follows;
"My G. E. dryer make squeaking noise when the drum is turning. However, it only during so, when load with cloths."
Based on the information provided above, I am unable to access my database to provide you with exacting information. You did not provide a valid model number, however, I have provided some common solutions to help guide you in your search.
My Solution is:
If your dryer is noisy, check these:
Rear drum bearing
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.
Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.
Following the link below will provide some information on G.E. dryers.
Following the link below shows disassembly procedures for most G.E. models.
Rear drum bearing: Most common failure Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.
Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Very likely the front support bearing is worn through and cracked there are also three drum slides that are positioned on the bearing which very likely worn to nothing and will need to be replaced as well. For model # NVLR333ET0WB replacement part numbers are:
FRONT BEARING: WE3X77
BEARING SLIDES: WE3X87
Good Luck to you.

The bearing or spindle the drum rotates on is probably bad or worn out. You can get to the back and turn it by hand and feel it when you turn it. You can tell if it is metal rubbing. If so, you can replace it.

Your rear drum bearing has worn through the plastic and is now hitting the metal support underneath it,
soon it will act like a guillotine and slice of the ball, the drum will fall backwards into the heating element and short to ground causing the fuse to blow the heater element to burn intwo and the whole thang will be dead in the water.
