I'm sorry it's an electric dryer and sounds like a bearing possibly failing.

okay give me a few minutes to look this up.
Okay got it, So when you start this it squeals and only runs 2 minutes and stops ? can you push the start button immediately like within a few seconds and will it start or do you have to wait about 5-7 minutes before it restarts ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

it does it when you start the dryer for the first 1-2 minutes and stops!

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

it doesn't stop at all it continues to dry the clothes fine. It just makes the noise for the first minute or two.

okay but right after it stops you can restart it by pushing the start button immediately ? like within a second or two ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes you can restart it but I don't need to because it keeps drying without the noise.
