Question about Dryers
I have a affinity dryer, when you first turn it on it makes a squealing noise like somthing is loose fora second then it sounds fine untill next time you turn it on
Most likely it is the wheel that the belt runs on to turn the drum. It may need to be replaced or you could try to put some white grease on it. be sure not to get any on the belt or it will make it slip and smoke

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.
