I have a maytage dryer model# mde2706ayw and it is making a loud squicking noise on and off. it is sometimes really loud and only last a few seconds on and off during the whole cycle

Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

This is a simple dryer to diagnose.2d23ddb.jpg The limits and heater or mounted in the lower left corner of the rear bulkhead. Unplug the dryer and remove the front panel.1d97909.jpg Remove the 2 screws holding the element and get it out. (only two wires to take loose) Get it out9f0a336.jpg and check it for continuity between them two connections or simply examine the heater for breaks. If all of that is ok The cycling thermostat might be whack. If all of that is good and you have 240 volts at the receptacle then the timer may have a burnt contact inside 2261b68.jpg

I want to replace rear bearing on a Frigidaire FDE546RBS1 electric dryer to stop squeling. Do I have to remove the drum? How do I remove front panel? Are there rollers or glides that I should also replace?

The top comes off first to remove the front panel. Then remove the drum. A roller is mounted on the belt tensioner and simply bolts on. That is all you need to replace to have a quite running dryer

Dryer won't start when timer button is pushed in

Hopefully, the moisture in the air didn't affect the timer. You may want to put some WD 40 on it. I would check all the wiring first. I assume you reset the breakers, checked the receptacle, especially if it is near the floor. Look under the top and near the drum and check the thermal overload.
