Has anyone thought it might be the clutch release bearing? This is of course inside the bell housing, between the engine and transmission.
For a long time before the bearing goes completely out and need replacing, it could start squealing like that. It is a sealed bearing, but when old the internal grease may dissipate, and cause squealing.

You need the rear drum bearing replaced,and while tearing down to replace the rear bearing the front bearing surface should be inspected (Its actually a plastic piece with teflon glide bars attached that the front of the drum rides on)..

DRYER SQUEAKS DRYER HAS A HIGH PITCH SQUEEL WHEN TURNING


That is caused by lack of lubrication of the REAR bearing for the drum. It will have to be removed and grease will need to be added. If the machine is run without this, a new bearing will have to be purchased. If the squeeling just started, the bearing is ok - you just have to get the job done very soon. While in there, they should clean the lint out. They should also lube the idler pulley for the belt. The idler pulley is often forgotten, and this item should be lubed every time the machine is serviced. Good luck.

The idler bearing that keeps tension on the belt is going out due to heat leaching the grease out of it. Have it replaced.

I don't think they can be, but, also take a look at the fan bearing assembly too. You should be able to isolate if the noise is from the motor bearings or blower bearings.
