I am trying to understand what is causing the loud squealing heard while my dryer is operating, and what steps to take for repair.

Thank you for your help!

Excellent.

loud squealing heard while my dryer is operating

The noise sounds like it is coming from the rear drum bearing...

Another common trouble maker...

While in there, check the front glides and drum belt...

We went ahead and bought a new washer and dryer during a sale. Wife is much happier now. ;)
