Below is a parts breakdown/disassembly procedure for your dryer.
The most common cause of a squeal is the drum roller, of which there are 2. It is usually a good idea to replace both rollers, roller shafts and drum belt at the same time, as they have a tendency to wear at the same rate. You must also use the proper lubricant on the roller shafts, (Syl-Glide), or you will have a recurrence of the squeal.

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.
Rear drum bearing 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.

your clothes are getting caught between the drum and the rim due to bearings out of the wheel guides. These guides are what the drum rests on when it is turning. Most dryers you can access these guides by taking the front off the dryer. Not a big expense just a little difficult to get to .

This is a pretty simple dryer. Unplug it and pop the top then remove the front. The heater and limits are all mounted on the lower left hand side on the heating element.
While you is in there do a good cleanup and oil the rollers and idler. Use zoomspout oil.
Replace the belt if she looks worn out.
