Mice? I doubt it. It is more likely the drum or belt on the drum pressing on something next to it. Pull out the machine from the wall, unplug the machine from the power outlet and open the top back panel. Look inside where the drum is and see if there are scratch marks where the drum appears to be hitting or the belt scraping. Pull out the lint that is all over the place while you do this.

You will need to replace the dryer belt. To do this follow the instructions below
Disconnect the power for your dryer before beginning any work. It can be disconnected from the wall outlet.
Open the top of your dryer cabinet and tilt it backward.
Use a Phillips head screwdriver remove the top two screws. Put the screws in a safe place.
Tilt the front forward and roll the belt around the drum.
Remove the old belt by lifting the drum slightly in order to give way to the front supports. You may have to open the dryer door to help the belt fall to the bottom of the basket.
Position the new belt by aligning it in the correct position before beginning to thread it through the motor pulley and idler. It will take someone with strong fingers and skinny arms to be able to get past the drum in the front. The dryer belt in a General Electric dryer has to be threaded looking in from the back.
Reassemble your dryer by replacing the screws in the top of your dryer.
Close the top and slide the dryer back against the wall.
Reconnect the power to your dryer by plugging the cord back into the wall outlet.
There are three screws that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the dryer. Remove these screws and the panel will slide back, then lift off. You should have access the outer perimeter of the drum, control board and control panel.
If you need to access the dryer bottom cabinet, remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and then come off.
NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the dryer up can offer better access to the toe panel screws ( a section of 2x4 works well for this).
There are some helpful exploded view diagrams you can use for reference at these following websites:

This advice from Sears to replace baffles only applies to dryers. The baffles for the washer are installed from inside the basket. If you can't locate mounting from inside the basket, then the entire basket/tub will have to be removed and disassembled.(big job)... But I am pretty sure they mount from inside. Washer or dryer, there are three screws in the rear along the top. Remove screws, slide top toward rear and lift off.
