What's the model number,kenmore doesn't make anything,if it starts with 110. it will be whirlpool made,if it's 417. it's frigidaire,if it's a whirlpool it will be a belt kit,you get the belt,rollers and pulley,if it's frigidaire made most likely it will be the rear bearing.

SOURCE: squeaky dryer

IF THE LINT FILTER IS LOCATED ON TOP OF THE DRYER,
THERE ARE TWO SCREWS UNDER THE LINT FILTER THAT NEED TO BE REMOVED. REMOVE THE LINT FILTER ALSO.
PULL FORWARD AND UP ON THE DRYER TOP( NOT JUST THE CONSOLE) AND DISENGAGE THE TOP FROM THE FRONT. THERE ARE HINGES ON THE BACK OF THE TOP JUST PIVOT IT UP OUT OF THE WAY. NEXT, THERE ARE TWO 5/16 HEX HEAD SCREWS INSIDE THE DRYER NEAR THE TOP IN EACH CORNER THAT HOLD THE FRONT TO THE SIDES. REMOVE THEM AND THE FRONT WILL PULL FORWARD. IT IS HINGED AT THE BOTTOM. LIFT IT OFF THE HINGES AND SET IT ASIDE. YOU CAN NOW UNDO THE BELT FROM THE MOTOR AND IDLER AND USE IT AS A HANDLE TO LIFT THE DRUM OUT OF THE CABINET.
THE DRUM SUPPORT ROLLERS ARE LOCATED AT THE REAR OF THE MACHINE AND CAN BE REPLACED AS A SET. THE NUMBER IS 349241T FOR THE TWO PACK.
CLEAN THE SHAFT WITH SANDPAPER BEFORE INSTALLING THE NEW ROLLERS. THEY ARE HELD ON WITH TWO TRIANGULAR CLIPS. JUST CUT OR BREAK THE OLD ONES. THE NEW ROLLERS COME WITH NEW RETAINING CLIPS.
AFTER REPLACEMENT, REASSEMBLE IN REVERSE ORDER.

Depends how technical you are. More than likely it is the rollers (depending on who made the Kenmore). Go to www.apwagner.com and you can get the parts there. Or if you are unsure about taking it all apart, call for service.

Loud thumping sound


It's probably time for new drum support rollers. There are two rollers the drum rides on and their bearings can fail, which makes them noisy and also makes the drum wobbly while it turns. Replacing the rollers isn't difficult, and you can do it yourself if you feel comfortable working with hand tools and are patient.

Here's a good site with information on belt replacement and other repair tips, and a source for parts:

Loud noise when dryer is running.


My guess is that the belt is going bad. It could also be a bad bearing...the noise is generally metallic. Also...a bad belt tensioner comes to mind.
