Default Noisy Dryer

My daughter has a Kenmore Dryer DWSR-ELE-2406028-FM54 that has started a squeeking noise each time shortly after start up. My thoughts are a bearing, with a quick look the other night (did not open it up) I am guessing it ether rides on nylon at both ends og the drum or sits on rollers at the bottom. can any one direct me to a site where I look at a parts lay out before I open it up?
TIA Jim

It's probably the felt strips at the front of the drum that are worn out. Using the model number you can find diagrams and parts list at SEARS

take the back off to access the heater and blower.
take the top off to access everything else.
you may have to disconnect the lint chute to get the top to hinge open.
