I've replaced the drum bearing system, as well as made sure nothing was touching the barrel as it turned. I put it back together and no change in the sound.

WE3X75 is the part number of the plastic rear drum support bearing. That is your squeak source.

I don't think that is it, The squeak only happens when a load is in the dryer. It's also louder when listening to it in the front opposed to the sides or behind it.

As SublimeMasterJW said the rear bearing is the most common cause of squeaks in this unit which I believe you said has been replaced.

They can also be caused by the idler roller or motor bearings.
Could even be the front glides.

Often it is difficult to find the cause as sound can travel through the case/frame and be deceiving as to it's source.

I would try a drop of oil on the idler wheel and it's support rod where it attaches to the frame/motor. Use sewing machine or 3in1 oil not wd40 as wd40 in not a very good lubricant.

The front glides seem likely. I did notice some areas that just looked worn on the front of the drum when I took it apart. I'll drop some oil or grease on it and see if it helps.
