The noise you describe sounds to me like maybe you have a belt that is slipping when you are starting to dry your clothes. If this is so, then it may not be long before you will have to replace the belt because it will break, or burn in half.
Or you could have drum rollers that need lubrication.
If it is drum rollers and you have a front loading machine, you can remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
I hope this helps

Keeps filling up with water randomly during a cycle


Remember sometimes there is a rinse and soak that happens in some models, and if everything is running normal then all your getting is the occassional water release during certain cycles.

Dryer is squeeling through the cycle


Most of the time when this happens it is one of two things. The belt has gotten loose and is slipping, or the drum bearing is weak causing the drum to rub on parts of the housing.

your dryer drum wheels that support the drum are either stuck on their shaft or the shaft that they turn on are rusty or eroded out on the wheels/spindle and are creating the noise you hear,you need to access the drum and lower area to see these wheels there are 4 wheels 2 at the back of the drum and 2 at the front of the drum,the rear 2 are most likely the porblem,from the heat of the dryer element

Squeeling sound on spin cycle


This sounds like the same problem I had with my 887-327. It seems that coins can fall into the water pump from the bottom of the drum. I had to pull the water pump off the direct drive and turn the blades until the dimes came out. After I reinstalled the pump everything was quite again.
