Question about Dryers
the problem could be one of a few things the first is the belt tension might need adjusting or the belt might even need replacing this is the cheap and easy solution.
the other is expensive and difficult this is the drum bearing this needs specail tools to replace but this is not likely the problem.
Remove back cover and check belt tension it shouldnt be to loose but also not over tight check the belt for crack and replace if damaged. You can tighten the tension with metal bar and spanners but youll see this yourself.
Also the noise could just be a general noise that you might get just due to wear and tear so if the belt is fine then i wouldnt worry to much if it was drum bearing then it would be more of a constant sound happening all the time.
Let me know if you need further assistance ok

A couple of possibilities, your belt could be getting worn or the dryer motor pulley is slipping causing it to squeak. if you send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org , I will be able to send you pictures of your dryer to make it easier for you to troubleshoot and do the repairs on your own. Major money saver.
