I have this model dryer, about a week ago the drum began this loud pitched squeaky noise. I knew the unit was out of warranty, so I took it apart myself. I found the idler pulley was locked down, and two rollers would barely turn. My internet investigation found that this is a known problem that appears to not have a permanent fix. This is a very expensive dryer to have such cheap parts. I am a career industrial maintenance employee, it didn't take me long to see this. If you buy one of these dryers, better learn how to work on them, and be willing to pay about $40 every 2 years. Good news is that it's not too bad to change them out. I replaced all 4 wheels and idler in a few hours.
