Loud squeaking, and long drying time

First: I read a lot of repair stories on PartSelect.com, as well as on other sites.
Removed 2 screws and took off lower panel. I turned the drum by hand, and identified the left/rear roller to be the squeaking part. Removed the 2 screws that held the door panel, removed it, and enjoyed the fireworks!!!, because I had neglected to unplug the dryer first. The door switch was ruined, but I was thankful that no bodily injury or severe property damage happened.
While I was shining the flashlight toward the back/underside of the dryer, my dear wife noticed light inside the drum.
Ordered a new new door switch, roller axle, roller and rear felt cylnder seal...all arrived in 3 days.
Decided to replace the front felt seal too, and bought it at a local shop, along with the adhesive, which I couldn't find at PartSelect.com for less than $32.
Took the front drum panel, belt, drum and bulkhead panels off per advice at this site.
Replaced switch, but had to crimp on a new spade connector (included with the switch).
Cleaned off old felt seal adhesive with Goof-Off, and glued on the new seals.
Replaced the real axle and wheel, with a little added lithium grease.
Cleaned out the dirt in the dryer cabinet, and put everything back together with my wife's help and her keen common sense.
The dryer is much quieter, and dries faster thanks to the new seals.
The repair was straightforward, but I rated it "a bit difficult" because of the amount of taking-apart and rebuilding that I decided to do.

Squealing noise, intermittent

Solution: assy, idler lever (#37001287) the trick was to remove the top cover as there are no exposed screws 1. Insert a putting knife in the middle of the gap between the top cover and the front panel. Slide the putty knife to the left and then right. When you hit something, it is a clip. Use the putty knife to depress the 2 locking clips. Lift up the top cover. 2. Remove the front panel ( 2 screws, on each side and some electrical spade connectors) 3. Remove the blower duct (3 screws from inside the drum) 4. Remove the blower panel (9-screws). Set aside. 5. Remove belt tension from idler-assy 6. Disconnect motor harness connector from motor. 7. Rotate blower assembly counter-clockwise to remove from dryer. 8. Replace idler assy.

Dryer was making a screeching noise

I unplugged the dryer, disassembled the front panels and blower intake assy, then pulled the drum out far enough from the back seal to access the drum rollers and roller brackets.

The toughest part was getting the "c" rings off the shaft ends. I used needle nose pliers and put them in the gap between the ends and then spread the pliers open. Once I did that, the rings started to come off the shaft. I then was able to get the needle nose pliers to grab the rings and pull them off. Once off I was able to remove the rollers and remove the roller brackes with a 5/16" socket wrench. Putting them all back together was a cinch and the reassembly took no time at all.
Though one of the drum rollers was wearing badly, the screeching noise was due to a bad belt idler assembly which I had to replace (along with the belt) after that order came in. A little machine oil helped to temporarily silence the idler wheel (lasted about 3 loads).
