Question about Dryers
Your issue is as follows;
"My G. E. dryer make squeaking noise when the drum is turning. However, it only during so, when load with cloths."
Based on the information provided above, I am unable to access my database to provide you with exacting information. You did not provide a valid model number, however, I have provided some common solutions to help guide you in your search.
My Solution is:
If your dryer is noisy, check these:
Rear drum bearing
Rollers 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.
Idler pulley 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.
Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.
Following the link below will provide some information on G.E. dryers.
Following the link below shows disassembly procedures for most G.E. models.
Rear drum bearing: Most common failure Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.
Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

I think it is the drum main bearing that has started to sieze.
If it is not this, then the drive belt may need replacement.
If this leads to a solution, please take a moment to accept. Thank you.
