I can only assume by rollers you mean bearings were replaced. Unless your dad measured both the ID Fit of the bearing and the OD fit [ inside diameter and outside diameter of the shaft and housings] new bearings could be on the small side of their tolerance, [new bearings are made to be within a certain amount of "slop" if the new bearing was on the outside tolerance, and the shaft or housing was on the large side of the tolerance, the bearings are still allowing the drum to move, and thump.
OR if belt driven, the alignment of the belt is important, if one pulley is out, and the other in, one shaft will be pulling and the other pushing, again a thump.
Something in the bearing/pulley setup has not been discovered bad yet, it takes micrometers and some knowledge of bearing tolerances to resolve this kind of problem.
Think about it, what can thump in a dryer? The tumbler cage. It is most likely that the journal or housings are wore, second the motor may have a front or rear bearing/ housing the same thing, gone bad,
This machine is old enough I would expect to find a worn housing or shaft, either drum or motor,most likely drum, check the alignment of the belt also, but most likely the thump is not cost effective to repair, plus Dad's time which is invaluable.
Start searching the sale sheets, and reading consumer reports, time for a new energy easy dryer anyway.

If your dryer is noisy, check these:
Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.
Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.
Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.
Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Hi, To get to the belt, remove the screws on both sides of the door opening. The dor will lift off. Pull on the front panel and set it off to the side. You will need to remove the front panel holding the drum up. It is not a hrad job but, another set of hands to help makes a difference.
I have a pic of you dryer but it doesn't show a good view of the back. Some models have an access panel to make it easier to finish putting the belt on the idler pulley and motor pulley.
It is tricky when you have to put the belt on reaching in from the front.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

are you getting power down to the heater?why did you change all those other parts?you need to unplug the dryer,with a meter read out all the parts you changed out again but first make sure you have 240 volts coming to the machine,you can check it at the cord in the back,touch the white to the red,you should have 110 volts or 120,then go from the white to the black and you should have the same thing,if not the problem is in the house,if it's correct make sure you have power coming down to the heater,you could have a bad timer or a burnt wire,when you check the other parts unplug the dryer and whatever part you check at least one wire has to be removed,do this and you'll find your problem,if you did this first you wouldn't of bought all those parts.let me know what you find

Hello amber mallette, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Crosley dryer is squeaking once it starts running. This could be a possible problem with your belt, pulley, or motor. You may need to disassemble your dryer in order to access those components. This is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend having a professional technician out, this will help to avoid any future issues or personal injury. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt
