My maytag dryer makes a squealing sound when it first starts

Customer Question

my maytag dryer makes a squealing sound when it first starts and then goes away. I had a burning rubber smell the other day. I took the cover off and the belt looks fine but has small bits of what looks like melten rubber on the belt. If I need to change the belt do I filp the dryer on its top and thake the sides of the dryer off? Thanks Mike
