I've adjusted worn bearings so there's no slop and still roll somewhat smoothly and no play, but when I've unknowingly dropped a bearing during cleaning It gets more difficult to get the slop out (some call it preloading) and still have a smooth rolling wheel. Or somehow the axle got bent. Good luck
