Could be a worn belt or a loose belt tensioner.

Check the belts for proper tension....

Find a long length of belting that's open (no pulleys) -If you grab the edges with your thumb & finger, you should be able to twist them perpendicular to its original position.

Whatever you do, don't spray anything on the belts or pulleys.

Check the belts for wear, cracks, etc.
