I have a ALE 866 dryer and everytime we run it, it is making a loud squeeking sound

Hello- The squeak is most likely coming from the drum rollers which are located under the drum in the rear; these often become sticky due to the heat and dust inside the dryer. It is usually best to replace them once the machine is opened up though sometimes the bearings are ok and one can just remove the wheels and clean the roller shaft with a green kitchen scrubber. The best lube to use is graphite because it does not break-down and get gummy with the heat generated by the dryer. The drum has to be removed in order to perform the service and Maytag (AMANA) belts are very tricky to put back on so I would suggest having a Tech out to accomplish this. They could also clean the inside of the dryer cabinet of lint and check the belt and other components for wear at the same time. Best regards.

My dryer is making a loud siren type noise and the drum turn is kind of clanky sounding too. It is producing heat and drying but I am concerned that something is wrong. I have an Amana LE8317W2 electric...

You will need to remove the top of your dryer and inspect the belt tensioner. If the idler roller has a bad bearing and sticks the roller will get a flat spot causing the noise you are hearing

My Amana dryer gets clothes stuck between the drum. how do i fix this

Sounds like the drum bearings are worn out. this leaves a gap for the clothers to stick into. You will need to replace them. Check the support rollers also when you have it apart.

I have an Amana ALE643RBW drum needs manual assistance to tumble

If you remove the back panel you will be able see the drum rollers. There's a good chance they may be worn out. As long as you are replacing the rollers I would suggest replacing the belt at the same time.
Typically when the rollers wear out, the drum drops ever so slightly and the drum wears on the front and rear drum to cabinet seals.The added drag can cause a slow drum and squealing noises.
Good luck, let me know if there is anything further you need.

Metallic squeaking from Amana Dryer

If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Idler pulley
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel

Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. 

Idler pulley
Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. 

Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them. 

Rear drum bearing
Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel
Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Good luck.....
