Pinot, usually the squeak on these 417's is coming from the drum ball and plastic bearing. Sometimes they crack and sometimes just need to be greased. Go to this link http://www3.sears.com/ and enter your model number, upper left hand corner. Follow the link and click on view diagram, page 1. Look at number 12 and 34. This is the drum hitch and plastic bearing. Your husband will have to remove the top and once he has the belt off, pull up on the drum to get it off the bearing, (plastic coupling that the ball sets into. If it's not cracked and the ball is is good shape, just grease it. If it's cracked and the ball is a chewed up, replace them both. This job is done better with 2 people cause it's not the easiest deal. You can find the part numbers on the parts link right next to view diagram. Let the cat know if you need any more help, Catriver.

If it has a start capacitor, could be faulty. try it without the belt on , and flick the motor by hand , if it goes then motor is probably o/k.

it could be a worn motor bearing, but they usually last for 20 years, i would guess that you have a worn drum roller, the thing that holds up the drum and looks like a wheel.
if your sure the motor has a worn bearing then replacing the motor is not easy as you have to unscrew the blower wheel from the motor shaft.
it also may be that you are talking about the idler pulley being worn. it is the device that holds tension against the belt and they also will wear out and be "wobbly"

Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the
access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter
first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty
knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on.
VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or
the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they
do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door
springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door
panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel
out of your way. Yank out the tub. Clean the junk out (send me the coinery) oil the wheels and Idler with temp resistant zoomoil from ace hardware. Use this guide to replace dat belt Kimosabe:

the rollers (?) that turn the drum might need some lubrication ---- same thing happened to me and the tech removed the rollers (?? don't know the right word) and lubricated them ---- all working fine now
