I would guess that some rubber anti-vibration mounts have aged. If so this may allow the cooling fan to move and grate on the fan housing. It is unusual for the hermetic compressor to give trouble but having just said that, on rare occasions the big-end bearing can fail. This would cause a very obvious knocking noise coming from the compressor. Its just a case of carefully opening up the dehumidifier housing and looking to see what is happening. As an aide-memoire one can tape all the screws to a piece of cardboard adding notes as to where they came from. Take care and good luck!
Disconnect it, (DO NOT REPAIR WHILE CONNECTED), remove outer plastic casing (screws), lubricate moving parts with a little WD40 or similar. Re-assemble.
If you can get to the part that's squeaking with a long tube you could try spraying silicone lubricant spray on it without disassembling.
sounds like the fan - its worth taking apart and seeing which bit squeeks, if its the bearing try a small amount of WD40 first. try not to get any on the motor of electrics. You can by an electrolube spray if is is the Fan... Well worth taking apart, the latest EBAC models are of very poor quality.
I also had a Homedry for 15 years and the cabinets started to root first... I've had three 2560e's since all replaced under warranty - pcb failures...
With the unit unplugged, open the cover and check the alignment of the
fan. If the fan is stuck or rubbing against the fan cowling, adjust the
fan motor's mounting hardware so that the fan turns freely.
