SOURCE: when i turn it on, it sqeaks and sound like metal

Your first problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
Your second problem the scraping noise may be caused by a faulty front seal
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum, front seal and belt. Check the front seal to see if it is in place and is in good condition. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

There is likely to be something stuck between the inner drum and the outer casing. In my experience this is most commonly the wire from an underwired bra! (belonging to my wife!)

If the inner drum has holes in it feel the surface carefully all over to try to detect a wire or other object protruding into the drum. If you find something it can often be pulled free with a pair of pliers or pincers.

I have a eurotech dryer model # EDC 158. Where can I purchase a latch assembly for it?

I have just spent 2 days trying to find a belt for a eurotech edc 158 Dryer. The company went out of business a few years ago and there is only one place to get parts. Call 972-941-1900. You will have to leave a message for a call back. Belt is $61 with shipping. They indicated they replacement parts will be available for 4 more years.

Call Asko parts at 866-223-5549 and order part number 651009040;
it costs 15.99 + 13.95 shipping
They do not have the service manual available to non-authorized techs to get the front off and to tension the belt, thoughit should be similar to other machines.
