I believe your problem is the drum rollers in need of lubrication or replacement. The will cause the squeak and squeal as you described
If you have a front loading machine, Disconnect the power first, then remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum and belt, then you remove the drum and belt and that will expose the drum rollers.
Try to lubricate the rollers at the shaft area with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One Oil.
If the drum rollers are worn very much and are sloppy at the shaft area then you may need to replace them with new ones.
While your at it check the drum roller surface to make sure they have no flat spots on them. If they do replace them.
I hope this helps

Westinghouse Electric Dryer, Drum doesn't turn on start up, if your spin drum and close door it will start,


Either something is binding the blower wheel up or the motor is bad. The best thing is to take the front of the machine off to access the blower wheel to verify ifanything is indeed binding it.IF not read the next section.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.


Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

When turning the knob to start dryer, buzzing sounds but drum doesn't start to turn unless you gently push atart the inside drum


The problem is either a faulty start winding in the motor, or the circuit which energizes the start winding is failing.

A dryer motor has two windings: start & run. The start winding gets it going and a centrifugal switch disconnects the start winding when the motor gets up to speed.

Check the dryer start switch -- then the motor connections and the centrifugal switch inside the motor.

Dryer Motor won't always start Model FSE747GES


Too much drag on the Drum. Try lubricating the rollers that the drum turns on. Check the belt tensioner pully...lubricate that as necessary. If Drum still turns very hard after this then take belt off of motor and try turning drum. If drum turns easily then replace motor.
