Kenmore dryer squeals at start then stops after about a minute

Hello,
I recently changed solenoids on my kenmore gas dryer. After reassembly it now squeals at startup for about a minute then stops for the rest of the cycle. I was going to take the drum off again and reseat it, but should I replace anything as maintenance while itís apart or just try reseating it. The dryer is about 8 years old.
Thanks!
RM

It could be the belt idler pulley or one of the rollers on the back. You can put one drop of oil on the rollers shafts and try that.

Make sure nothing is worn thru on the front felt gasket.
