When the rollers start moving there is a loud popping noise. any ideas?

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, but there are others.

My car sounds like a bell "ka-boing"

from your description of the damage it sounds like a metal reinforcement got loose (it helps the flat pice of metal such as the hood or trunk lid keep its shape and not flex) though it would help a lot to know year make and model of your car. is the dent only on the impact side of the trunk or did it form a bump on the side that didnt have direct impact, have you tried to pull the dent out? - that also puts tension on the metal and will make a noise. basically if you want to get a better answer let me know about your car and what has been done to it after the damage.

My 1995 Jeep Cherokee is making a clunking sound all the time. It sounds like it is in the back passenger side. What could it be?

have the u joints inspected as sometimes a noise is not coming from the area you might think it is.the noise could be a bad shock on that side or a rear spring bushing or spring problem.have it checked out,its a 95 so chances are you have not changed the shock and its worn out making noise.if it is change both shocks.

Dryer making a grinding noise when turned on. How do you get the top off to check the barrel motor?

Clanging Sound
1. If the noise coming from your dryer can be described as a clanging sound, the solution is probably well within your grasp. This common sound is typically the result of loose debris accidentally put in with the load of laundry. Change may be left in pockets of pants or other objects may be dropped in the laundry basket by children --- perhaps a toy car. The objects may not be noticed when put into the wash, and the water in the washer may have dampened the sound. Simply remove these items, and restart the dryer to resolve the issue.
Sometimes the clanging is from snaps or buttons that are actually part of the clothing. If you are drying a jacket with metal snaps or another garment with metal attached, you should expect this clanging sound as they tumble and strike the inside of the dryer tub.
Humming or Whistling
2. Many Roper dryer models are equipped with a safety feature known as a lint signal, which is usually a light that often accompanies a warning signal, telling the machine owner that the lint trap has become clogged. When the dryer cannot pull adequate air through the lint filter, it can overheat and become a fire hazard. The warning alarm may sound like a hum or whistle to get your attention. Look at the lint signal light, clean out the trap and the noise should stop.
Thumping or Grinding
3. If the noise you are hearing can be described as a thumping sound or a metal grinding sound, the device that turns the dryer drum, known as the drum rollers or glides, can be worn out. As the drum turns, there may be a constant and rhythmic thump each time the drum rotates. A severely worn or broken roller could cause the metal of the drum to rub against the metal housing of the machine, causing a louder grinding noise. The rollers will need to be replaced to remedy the problem.
Squeaking or Squealing
4. Most dryers work by using belts to turn the rollers, which in turn make the drum rotate and tumble the clothes dry. When these belts get loose, a worn belt or a malfunctioning tensioner spring may keep the belt tight. In either case, belt slippage may occur and will produce a squeaking or squealing sound that is easily recognized. The problem is likely to be the tension on the belt since most belts will break before wearing out to this degree.

The walking deck on my Weslo Cadence 975sel slides to the right and causes a loud rubbing noise. How can I correct this problem? Thanks,

Find the allen key that came with the machine. If you don't have it, you will need a 3/16" allen key to adjust the roller.
If the belt is pulling to the right, adjust the right screw by turning it clockwise 1/4 turn with the belt moving. You may need to do this more than once. Between adjustments, watch the belt closely to see how much it moves to the left.
Unless something dramatic has happened to the frame or some other part, the amount of adjustment should not be too great..

I have a proform380i that makes a lot of noise when started... I think it needs oiling .... where do i put the oil in the treadmill ?

Unplug unit remove motor shroud then plug unit in then start it observe where the noise is coming from. The best way to check the rollers to see if the bearings have failed is using a long shafted flat tip screw driver and place it on the shaft of the front roller, then put your ear on the handle and listen, if the sound has amplified then the roller is defective and needs replacing. If not then check the The drive motor the same way last but not least check the rear roller by placing the screw driver on the end of each adjusting bolts. If the noise is a squealing noise then it could be the drive belt .Call Icon Fitness to order part their is 1-800-999-3756.

LG DLG2526W it just started to make a weird noise unitl it wouldnt spin anymore. unplugged it but still wont spin

The belt for the drum has a tensioner to keep the belt snug while running. The tensioner has a roller that incorporates a bearing to make it run smoothly. When the bearing goes bad the roller binds receiving a flat spot on it so when it turns it makes the belt snap very quickly making the belt to slap the drum everytime. It does make a lot of noise I know for I heard a lot of them with this problem. No since it does not turn the belt has finally broke so you need a tensioner roller and a belt which are sold together by most manufacturers

I Have a TC500 2004 model with 2 rear roller bars. The bearing leaked the fluid and it make so much noise. Bowflex no longers sells those rollers. Where can I ehter buy them? Help Thanks

It might just need an adjustment of the hexagonal screws on both the front and rear rollers. Check out the post I had on adjusting someone's belt that was rubbing...the steps are the same. You're right, they don't sell the dual rears anymore, so if my other solution doesn't work, you'll have to call nautilus and purchase the newer treadles, which run about $900 from Bowflex. They sometimes give a 20% discount if you're nice to them, but it's still a lot of money. If the noise you hear is a consistent clicking or clunking sound, then you might get by with just adjusting it. If it's a constant scraping sound then new parts are most likely your only option. Here's a site that gives a blowup of the parts (unfortunately, I don't think they have the one for your older model, but the aside from the rear roller, it's basically the same.)

Good luck.
