My dryer has a terrible screeching noise when it first starts then slowly goes away. Is it the drum bearing? The dryer is six years old and used about 3 times per week. I just replaced the belt. The noise was there before the belt change but got worse after.
ANSWER Hello Kit,
This is either a rear bearing 5303281153 or an idler pulley 131863100 in need of replacement.
