Is there any cure for a squeeky gas dryer. It is only a couple of years old.

I just tore ours apart a month ago .It had a little ball kinda like a little trailer hitch ball on back of the drum that rides in a socket made of a plastic material and the front rides on some plastic pads . Any way the little ball had worn down thru the plastic and was rubbing on the steel holder . I just greased it good and I have got to get another socket when I get time. Thanks for reminding me to get that part I totally forgot about it

It is usually the idler. This is the device that keeps the drum belt tight. You can pull the bottom off and shoot some oil on it. This is a temp fix. It probably needs a new one.

Most dryers have nylon or teflon rub blocks that
can squeak if they are worn. This would likely be
a lower pitch squeak than the idler. To get at
them you have to disassemble the dryer and take
the drum out.
