My husband picked up a great dryer from the side of the road, but it makes a CRAZY LOUD squealing noise.  I've found this site to be friendly and helpful, and am wondering if anyone here can help me diagnose and fix this problem.  My Father-in-Law can fix anything, but I hate to ask him to do it for us.  I'd like to learn how to do these things myself.  The dryer gets clothes dry and works GREAT and it is obviously VERY new, but the sound is crazy loud!

Thanks in advance for any and all help  :)

The sound seems to be coming from the rear - I am guessing, based on previous posts from others, that it's the rear drum rollers.  Could anyone point me to where I could purchase the parts and repair this myself?  Again, I appreciate this so much!

The noise could be coming from motor or idler pulley any of four drum rollers.I install the whole kit part #4392067.Something could be in blower wheel.Maytag and whirlpool are the same dryer and the dryer comes apart like in the video.
