The dryer was noisy when running so I replaced the rollers and tensioner/belt. One of the shafts looked a little damaged, but it seem to roll fine. Fast forward a couple of weeks and it now sounds like there is a tennis shoe rolling around inside the dryer, especially if it is a light load. I can reach in and pull the drum forward and it sounds better for a few seconds, then back to the thumping. Should I replace the rollers again and their shafts?

ANSWER Hello Bob. Make sure the felt seals are good. If so, then yes, you need to replace the shafts along with the rollers.
