Is this the dcvh515 GE? Mine began doing that and then started making a high pitched scraping noise that sounds like it's coming fron the door gasket/seal.

Squeaking is the rear drum bearing. The rest is the front drum slide supports. After a number of years, these wear and need replacing. Without the model number I can't give you the part numbers that fit your machine.

If your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.
Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.
Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.
Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: Dryer is eating clothes
suspect you have to buy a new part. I think they design them to go soft after only a year, so you have to replace them or buy a whole new machine.

the front of the drum rides on a felt pad. as the pad wears down it creates a gap for the clothes to get caught in. you just need to replace this felt. sometimes called front bearing sometimes called felt seal.
