Possibly one of the following : Could be a seized drum bearing, at rear of drum. It will get worse if you keep using the dryer, and eventually cause permanent damage to the drum. Or it could be something like a button or hair-clip is stuck between the front edge of the drum, and the normal rubbing surface at the front of the dryer. In both cases, you need to remove the drum to remove whatever is stuck in there, or to replace the rear drum bearing also. Hope this helps!

GE 5 Cycle Automatic Heavy Duty Extra Large loud noise


All ge dryers have a center bearing on the back side of the drum and drum glides on the frontside. The glides make a scrubbing sound when bad and the drum is hard to turn. The rear bearing does a squeak thang when the plastic bearing wears thin and begins to make metal to metal contact between drum mount and rear bulkhead mount. It is an easy fix but the drum gotta come out. here is my pictorial page that shows how with videos and repair pix:

New GE Profile Dryer makes intermittent loud squeeking or rubbing


Your drum may be out of round. The drum belt on the outside of the drum may be rubbing against the cabinet. When the cabinet heats up, the side walls of the cabinet may be bowing inward, thus making contact with the belt on the drum. This would explain why it is intermittant. When the heater turns off, the cabinet cools and the sides bow back out.
