sqeak! squeak! wp dryer

This may be two problems...
My 10 Year old Westinghouse dryer ( WDG546RB ) has recenly began to SQEAK very loudly, then stops for a while then SQEAKS loudly again ( I think it may do so in the cool down phase ? )
Also, sometimes I hear a distinct light "chafing" sound. I have noticed that the drum is very "tight" agains the upper "felt seal" thingy of the dryer, and not as tight on the bottom...(actually I think this is the source of the chafing" )
Finally, I think the dryer was off balance for quite a while before I noticed it...so I'm not sure what damage that may have done..
Anyhow, for reading online I'm confugsed if this is most likely the "drum glides" or the "rear drum bearing" ( or both! ).

If the idler is good, then you'll need to replace the rear center bearing. Disassembly help here:
