Dryer Squealing from the tension pulley


I have a Maytag Bravos Quiet series 300 dryer,  It started squeaking every now and then.  Eventually it got to the point where the squealing was constant.  I took the drum out and removed all 4 rollers, cleaned them and made sure they were turning freely.  lubricated the bushing with WD 40.    I  put it back together and the noise was still there.  I then took the tension pulley off, cleaned it, used WD40 and put it back together.  The noise went away and a couple days later it was right back.  This time i took  the tension pulley off and put grease on the pin and bushing.  so far so good but its only been a day.  What is the proper grease / lubricant to use on the tension pulley and the  rollers?  I also broke the small plastic triangle keeper for the tension pulley.  I've used a bobby pin as a temporary fix.  Is there a circle clip that I can use as an alternative to the triangle plastic piece?  I'm sure home depot doesn't sell those.
