I Have A Neptune Dryer and this solution helped a little bit. I removed the door to my dryer and the front of the dryer opened up. What i saw was 8 years of lint. Next i started the dryer and checked the belt tensioner and found it was squeeking, in another fix suggestion it said to remove and grease the tensioner. this is a bad idea due to all the lint and dirt that is circulated in side the dryer. (No not in the Place where you dry your clean clothes). what happens when you put grease on the tensioner it will collect lint and dirt causing it to clogg up faster and wear out.30 Minutes later dryer dries and no squeeking. Hoooooray.

There should be a access panel in the back of the dryer to get at the belt and pully. You can check the belt operation from there. If that all seems good you will need to remove the front of the dryer and check the drum supports in the front and the rear support rollors.If you hear the noise more from the front I would say the front supports are the ones thst should be replaced. And yes you can purchase a repair manual for that dryer at a parts store. Good Luck
