The noise you are hearing could be coming from the drum rollers needing lubricant.
If it is a front loading maching pull off the front of the machine, you can access the drum rollers to lube them or replace them and also get to the idle arm

Why belt keeps shredding


usually due to a bad bearing, or from resistance due to a frozen or failing assemble, as in power steering, alternator, or an idler. The best way to determine is to remove the belt and check all pulleys for play and resistance.

Belt broke on Maytag dryer DE410. I purchased a


The squeak may be coming from the drum rollers, check them to see if they need lubrication.
I recommend that you use a good grade of machine oil to lube them such as 3 in One oil. Lube them at the shaft of the roller. Also check the rollers to see if they have flat spots on them, if they do then they will need to be replaced.
Recheck your location of the idler arm bracket with pulley to see that you have it in the right location and that the spring is also in the right location. Look for wear spots on the frame and idler arm and match them up.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps
