Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Is it constantly making the noise or is it intermittent?

ok you'll need to just take the dryer apart and spin the different wheels to see which one is squeaking, then replace it. There are 2 under the drum in the front and 2 in the back. There is also an idler pulley by the motor, and the motor pulley itself.

To access, remove the 3 screws along the bottom of the lower front panel. The lower front panel will then pull down and off. Pull the dryer forward and unplug it. There are 2 or 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel and the top panel will pull straight back, up, and off. Remove the control panel, then the front panel, disconnect the belt and pull the drum out. Now you can turn the wheels and figure out which one is causing the noise and replace it.
