I have a super squeaky dryer. It just started happening all of a sudden. It usually happens when first turning on the dryer, and quiets down for the balance of the load, however it has occurred during the cycle as well. I'm worried that a bearing will seize or the belt will break so I don't run the dryer before I leave the house. Any thoughts? I looked it up and it appears that there is an idler pulley, two drum wheels, as well as the belt pulley and motor assembly that also runs the fan. I haven't completely disassembled it but I think that will be the only way I can narrow down the options.

I included a video with the squeaking.

Here's the kit you need. Be sure to clean out the motor and blower housing while you have it apart.
