It could be a bad belt, or it could be the rollers that support the back of the drum squeaking. If it is the rollers, they just may need to be lubricated. You can find an exploded view at www.appliancepartspros.com

I have a Kenmore 80 series dryer(118.72812101).


You may have something inside the workings of the dryer which has shorted out the heater coil. this could be the source of the noise as well. you need to remove the cabinet to access this, yet be careful as the drum will fall out on you in process. You can get a new coil from an appliance part store in your area. Take the dryer apart before buying this tho, so you don't waste your money on the off chance that this isn't the trouble. you will need make model and serial number from unit so they can match up the proper coil for you. Make note of how the belt is placed and routed for proper replacement when reassembling. Also make note of 'drum rollers' condition, as this could be some of the noise also.
Best to you, hope it works out
