Its just the bearing and it needs replaced. it will take about two hours to do and it will cost you about 30 dollars in parts. you can find many really goods vids on youtube that will show you how to do it and most parts manufactures now have directions on how to do it in the cluded when you buy the parts.

Just corrected the exact same problem with my Samsung model DV409AEW/XXA dryer. Made exact same noise as your dryer on video. Turned out to be idler pulley that Mike Murphy mentions in his post. Didn't have to be replaced. Just lubricated with WD-40. Thanks for the help !!!

SOURCE: dryer makes loud squeaking noise when spinning

there are two possibilities for this question. 1) there is an idler roller that give the belt the correct tension . unplug dryer and remove idler roller see if it spins freely if not replace it @0 there are two drum rollers in back of machine thatdrum rides on remove drum it's self explanitory how to remove drum and very easy also. you can roll these wheels and check for free movement visually check them ,one or both should be worn out or the bearing in the wheel has failed before putting old or new wheels back sand the wheel shafts to get any gunk off them and that's about the only thing that can make a dryer squeek

SOURCE: High-pitched squeaking during operation

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers may be in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.Also remove the screws holding the lint filter in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Magic chef dryer making very loud noise as it turns, how to get the bottom off


No need to take the bottom off - the top, front, and back come off - if the noise is a rather high pitched squeak the pads on the drum are worn out, if it sounds like a squeak but more metallic/raspy sound check the motor bearings, also check the drive belt.

Could be the bearings going, other possibilities could be that the drum is slightly misaligned and scraping against the housing, although that's not very likely, or a bad belt.

Although sometimes it's some obscure thing, I could be compleatly wrong.

Dryer makes a high pitch squeaking noise


This could be a dry support bearing, a dried out drum seal or something stuck in the drum seal. If I could hear it I would know better where to start. Listen and try to locate the source from the above list. It could be the belt but that is not as common.

My dryer had a high pitch squeak during operation for a while then suddenly seized and will no longer rotate.


there are really 3 items that could be causing your noise.
the most likely cause is you drive motor, it can get a worn bearing and make the noise, then when it becomes really bad, it just wont turn anymore.
also you could have a worn bearing in the idler pulley or drum support, but these usually wont stop the unit from running.
a new motor could cost about 150 bucks, idler 20 supports 25 each@2.
