The squeaking is due to the drum glides or as some people call them slides, being worn or broken. Easy fix and very inexpensive part

SOURCE: Model WED6200SW0 cabrio dryer does not have

84d6194.jpgThis is the area that needs your attention. The heater is on bottom and held by 2 screws, remove it to look for breaks or check it for continuity. If the heater is good then one of those limits(probably the small one on top) has failed due to a blocked vent pipe. The bottom limit is 250f and the op is 300f. If the top is bad the bottom is bad too because it did not shut down. Now go impress someone Tiger. Oh and be sure to unplug the dryer before removing the rear cover. Rate the answer so in case I am wrong, someone else can have a shot. But i am never wrong.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The squeaking sound comes when the belt is either broken or worn out and needs replacement or the idler pulley is bad. If you want to do this yourself then you can check this video on YouTube:

Dryer squeaks when you start. warms up it goes away


It may be one of the tensioner pulley wheels either starting to fall apart or the spindle it runs on in need of a little grease. They often start off squeaking until they've warmed up a little. Then the noise goes away after 5 minutes or so.

Hotpoint dryer squeaks at regular intervals


Slow squeaking or scraping noises are often from the rear bearing behind the square panel, the rear bearing sleeve is inside the middle of the heater housing and the shaft part is attached to the back of the drum by a "C" clip which needs to be removed first.
