Heard this loud beeping, searched all over to find it only to discover it was our dyer squeaking while running a drying cycle.

I am assuming it's a bearing of some sort or maybe a belt? Any ideas?

Hi Brian,

Yes, I hear it in the video.

Its usually the rear drum bearing that's the cause of that squeal noise.

Whenever you replace the bearing kit, its always best to replace the front glide felt pad kit as well.

Here's the rear bearing kit for your model you can order:
Drum Bearing 5303281153


Here's the front glide felt pad kit for your model you can order:
Felt Seal 5303937182


Also check your idler pulley to make sure the roller is spinning free both ways.

Here's the idler pulley for your model:
Idler Assembly 131863007


There is a HOW TO video in each part link, let us know how it goes.:)
