More than likely, the felt "bearing" on the front of the drum is causing the noise. You can clean it if you like - remove the top, remove the front to do so. While there do a thorough cleaning of the inside. You may also want to change the belt

Alternataively, you could turn up the radio a little to cover the squeek.

I hope this helps you.

There are four drum wheels at the base of the dryer that, over a period of time and immence heat, get dried out and need to be sprayed with a good penetrating oil(not WD-40) and this should solve your problem. If there are no rollers then part of the front seal or the rear seal are worn and should be replaced. They generally wear at the 12:00 position because this is the highest level of strain on the drum itself. Thank you, Dana

Dryer rotates and drys well, but makes a noise when reversing rotation. Makes more noise at the beginning of use, then subsides. What could be wrong? Belt, bearings? Can I fix or do I need an expert?

Squeaking due to weight of clothing


When you need this kind of noise and there is no abnormal vibration, then it depends on the drive pulley that pull the belt.
If it depends on the weight, and you get vibration it can also depend on bad dumper pads.
Here you can locate dumper pads and drive pulley below the tub.
Both parts are serviceable, repair should not be expensive.
If you need to contact a repair service, you can use the number listed on the owner manual.
