Question about Dryers
By "rollers" if you are referring to the drum turning, it could be a lot of things. The drum itself turns on two rollers located at the back of the machine and is held in the front by a felt ring (all around the front opening. A belt is wound around the drum and connects to the motor pulley usually tensioned through an idler pulley.
A popping sound leads me to believe that either one (or both) of the rear rollers is defective, the felt ring needs to be replaced or possibly the belt idler is defective. (I'm guessing, but I 'm thinking that the drum is binding due to a defective support roller or felt and the machine needs to overcome this bind before it can turn. The motor starts to turn, the belt pulls and begins to bunch up until it overcomes the binding and then as it snaps back, caused the pop you hear.)
What I would do is remove the front of the dryer (usually two screws located on the front cover, down near the floor, then swing it up from the bottom until it unhooks at the top) and turn the drum by hand to see if you can locate where the sound is coming from. Its actually very easy to do this, but make sure to remember to unplug the dryer before opening. There are discount supply houses on line that can ship you new parts. I usually use repairclinic.com, but there are others.
