I am not much of an expert with dryers but i'll give it a stab. Should there be a filter that catches the lint so that it does not go all over the clothes? Have you got the manual. If not, see if you can find the manual online and see if there is anything mentioned about a lint filter.

If the dryer model number begins with 417, the drum is supported by a ball bearing in back, and a seal and glides up front. Often, the bearing will become very dry, either from years of use, or from excessive lint blowing up into the bearing. If the bearing isn't cracked or otherwise noticeably bad, you can usually solve the issue simply by lubing the bearing with a high temp grease. While the machine is apart...(a major pain in the butt), make sure to check the condition of the seal and glides on the front panel, and replace the belt if it looks at all cracked or frayed.
If this dryer is not a 417 and/or does not have a rear bearing, it's best to get a maintainance kit (belt, idler pulley and drum rollers) and install all the aforementioned parts, as they are the most likely source of screech. Also, check the motor by spinning the shaft manually with the belt off....if that is squeeking, it's motor

Down low on the front should be two screws holding the front cover on. Hopefully the pump is accessable.

Sometimes there is a GFI or ground fault interrupter switch in the circuit. This is a wall plate which has a mini switch between both plug-in holes in the wall plate. Sometimes these are wired in-line where you have 1 master and additional outlets. This means that if the wall plate your washer and dryer are plugged into does not have a little red or black button to push to reset, there may be another wall plate in that room which has it instead.

Sometimes circuit breakers in a fuse panel are marked wrong. You may need to reset a different breaker.
