Question about Frigidaire FEQ1442ES Electric Dryer
the noise is coming from the drum axle bushing that allows the drum to spin on it's axle. Gain access to the rear of machine and apply some high temperature grease that is found in automotive parts stores to the bushing. run it while observing spinning drum at rear for any possible other problem where squeal can be found such as drum slides.

Most likely the rear drum bearing is worn. There's a "ball and socket" arrangement that supports the drum at the rear and a repair kit for it. Part #5303281153. Should run around $25.

you need to replace the inner plastic "shell" and the teflon pieces that the drum rides on. The dryer drum has eaten thru the teflon slides, and has probably started eating the shell away also.
About $40 in parts available on line will fix the problem.
