    I have the same squeeking noise problem. How do you remove the cover and / or the front ofthe dryer. The back and sides are a solid piece. Is there directions to removing the support wheel if it is bad?

I have a GE Profile 6 cycle dryer. It is making a high pitch squeeking noise.

Replace the rear drum bearing. You do not list a model number, so can not give much more info than that.

My dryer is making a high pitch squeeking noise but it still dries.

You likely have an idler wheel that is dry. The idler wheels are what supports the drum and allows it to turn freely. There may also be a belt tension problem. If the belt is too lose, it can slip on the motor, causing a squeal as well. First thing to do is pull the housing off, and see exactly where sound is coming from.
