Question about GE Dryers
Hello- Depending on the model you have it is most likely either the front or rear bearing. The front bearing on some GE's is actually a series of 3 teflon strips attached to a plastic support and the rear bearing is a ball and socket type. The teflon strips do wear down over time and then the drum starts to wear into the plastic support. The rear bearing "socket" also wears over time and can cause the drum to sit a few degrees lower in the back and cause squeaking. It may fade as the dryer heats-up because some metal parts are expanding and plastic parts wear in a certain grooves, so to speak, once they have been moving for awhile. Unfortunately you will probably need someone out to disassemble the dryer and find the specific cause. You may be ok to just live with it for awhile but it could be causing more damage to the parts as time goes on, meaning a higher repair cost. Hope this helps a little, best regards.
