The problem is that the "idler" assemby has gotten slippery. This is either a rubber tire or perhaps a gear that is driven by a belt inside the machine. In either case, this is a simple repair and is common as machines age. This should be a $75 repair including parts. The pinch roller (rubber cylinder) is what pulls the tape across the heads in a steady fashion and has no role in keeping the tape inside the cassette. This is handled by the idler assembly and works for FF/REW and PLAY. Also, a cleaning tape will clean the heads but not effect the pinch roller.
