Very loud, high-pitched squeal on startup. After 3-4 minutes it stops completely. I'm thinking the front roller. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on narrowing it down? Thanks in advance.

Nope, a bad roller would only get noisier as the dryer heats up. It's a bad motor, the bearings are going bad in the motor. When the motor sits for awhile the bearing isn't being lubricated by the oil, once the motor starts moving, the bearing gets lubricated by the oil and the noise goes away. After awhile, the motor may not start.

Thanks for the input, Scott.

Any other suggestions for things to swap out while I'm ordering parts and have it torn apart? The dryer is 7 years old and runs at least once a day. In July '11 I replaced the drive belt, but other than that the dryer has been pretty dependable (the Asko washer... not so much).

Thanks again.
