its possible that a pulley replacement is needed but i would first reccomend buying a lubricating spray from your local hardware store and applying it to your squeeling belt if the noise stops then you may just need to tighten or replace the belt. in addition an overtightend belt can cause undesired stress on the pulleys.
There are two items that could squeak:
If it squeaks when pushing/pulling it on carpet, WHILE NOT RUNNING, then the wheels are squeaking when they rotate on the wheel shaft. If so, one drop of oil at the shaft would fix it.
If it squeaks WHILE RUNNING, mostly while pulling backwards on carpet, then the belt is slipping. You may wish to set the nozzle height setting for a higher pile carpet, or could replace the rubber belt.
