Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com. The squeak is likely from the rear bearing, number 12 in the attached picture. As far as the heat goes, the bearing may have worn enough to allow the drum to sag enough to short the element out. Or, you may have an open thermal fuse, number 36, which is very common on this model.
