The kit number you are looking for should be #4392065.

The belt doesn't usually make noise, the idler pulley does occasionally but the rollers are usually responsible for the bulk of the noise/squealing

On your model it almost always is the idler pulley making noise. Most likely you have the slide type and will be replaced with a roller type. here is a break down of dryer and part is #38

Look in cabinet, PJmax has the whole kit, Which is good but I almost never had to change rollers on that model. 1 or 2 drops of light oil on shafts is all that is needed. Take rollers off and clean all hair and lint stuck .
