Hello- The squeak is most likely coming from the drum rollers which are located under the drum in the rear; these often become sticky due to the heat and dust inside the dryer. It is usually best to replace them once the machine is opened up though sometimes the bearings are ok and one can just remove the wheels and clean the roller shaft with a green kitchen scrubber. The best lube to use is graphite because it does not break-down and get gummy with the heat generated by the dryer. The drum has to be removed in order to perform the service and Maytag (AMANA) belts are very tricky to put back on so I would suggest having a Tech out to accomplish this. They could also clean the inside of the dryer cabinet of lint and check the belt and other components for wear at the same time. Best regards.

Loud squeeking sound. Figure its the back


Well I do not know which brand you have but I have pictorials on all kinds of dryers at my website. I am guessing yours is a GE. Check out my repair PICTORIAL.
Note: Not pictured is a WE3X75 bearing that goes on the rear of the drum and fits into the center hole pictured above.

More than likely it is the belt. A simple fix is to spray some belt dressing on the belt. However, changing the belt would be the best solution. Good luck.

Whirlpool GEW9200 dryer makes loud whining noise...


It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.

Dryer started out squeeling and now is making loud sounds?


This is very likely due to bad drum support rollers which is really not a difficult repair on these dryers.
