Most likely the rear drum bearing is worn. There's a "ball and socket" arrangement that supports the drum at the rear and a repair kit for it. Part #5303281153. Should run around $25.LOUD SQUEALING NOISE - fe7bd93.jpg

Dryer gets loud as it heats up


You have not mentioned the brand or year or model number, but most dryers have one of 2 systems.
One older system has a bearing back there, inside the machine, but outside the drum.
That bearing can fail, causing this.
I have had several of these, and am using one now.
The dryer must be completely disassembled and the bearing replaced.
The second type uses pulleys in the back and plastic bearings (nothing more that flat pieces of plastic) in the front.
The wheels or plastic plates can wear out, also causing these symptoms.
In either case, now is the time to fix it.
God bless your efforts.

After the dryer heats up for a while, it makes a loud squealing noise. It does not stop until the dryer totally cools down. Several certified Bosch repairmen have tried to fix it with no success.

Loud noise when dryer runs


Two items on two different dryers can make this noise. One is the belt tensioner pulley and the other is the bearing on a Frigidaire dryer.
