Why is my washing machine making a squeaking sound?

My Kenmore Elite HE3 washing machine works well however it has developed a squeaking sound when it is running. I'm no expert but it sounds like a rubbery squeaking sound as if the sound is being made by a rubber part. The sound occurs when the drum is rotating only at slow speeds and it's only periodic.

Cause 3

Drive Belt

The drive belt might be defective. Over time, the drive belt dries out and starts to crack. Eventually, a piece of the belt can break off, causing the belt to make a loud noise whenever the motor is running. To determine if the drive belt is broken, inspect the drive belt. If the drive belt is broken or damaged, replace it.
