I clean the shafts with emory cloth then then install new rollers dry.I think once a roller has begun to squeal the the bearing is damaged. If I don't have a new one I will oil it so they can use it until I get the new part.

I won't oil a squeaky roller, but oil when I install a new and never have to go back. Always clean the shaft.

I also use emery cloth to clean the shaft and then use a couple drops of synthetic oil on the shaft to get the residue of the emery cloth off the shaft and a rag to wipe off the oil so its dry and then install rollers.On any dryer i always install the belt,rollers,and pulley.I make up my own kits for all the popular dyers.Whirpool dryers i carry a least 5 F.S.P kits.If the belt is broken i change all parts and vacuum it out.Wd-40 has a strong smell to it i would be worried about smell when you turn dryer on for heat.Customer might say something about odor.
