Sounds like your motor and/or pulley assembly are bad. Try turning the drum by hand. If it turns with some effort then you may have a drum bearing going bad. Does the squeaking sound start right away? Or does it start when the dryer warms up? If so then the bearing is going. If you can get to it spray WD40 for a quick fix.

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean

screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

The dryer squeaks loudly

The dryer has been over loaded too often. Try to determine if squeak is from the front or back. The felt pad dirty. If it is from the bottom, then the tension roller is binding and needs lubrication.

Can I replace the dryer on my frigidaire stacked washer and dryer model # mlc275cw5?

I don't think you can replace the whole dryer section as a piece. If it just stopped working correctly you can replace internal parts to fix it. If it suffered some catastrophic damage (many parts destroyed) it will probably be less expensive to replace the whole laundry center.

Stacked washer dryer

It sounds like the belt or a pulley!
Anything more and it's not worth fixing if it's 10 years old .
Then better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!

Not worth the money to fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
