Regarding my original question about the counter clockwise rotation of the dryer drum.

I replaced the heating element in a Frigadaire stacked combo and when reassembled and started the drum turns counter clockwise. Can this be correct?
Model # FLSE60RGS2

Having problems with your appliances can be frustrating. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, a suggestion I have is to visit Sears Home Services website to set service with a Sears technician. I have attached the link below. Hope this helps!

The normal rotation of the dryer drum in this model is counter clockwise.

I answered your previous question about the dryer and washer rotation. Here is a link for that answer in case you need it:

I am probably beating a dead horse but after receiving this email from the manufacture I still have a bit of concern regarding the rotation of the drum/dryer and the spin cycle/washer on the stacked FLSE60RGS2 unit. I am just not used to a product with regular threaded screws turning in reverse direction. The washer's agitator is attached with a nut that also is regular thread and is running counter clockwise/spin cycle, not agitating cycle. The bottom line, I guess- one way to resolve the question is to check the air blowing === - is the air blowing out on the dryer vent. Since the cage is directly driven from the motor the blower should blow out. If that is the case the unit's rotation would be correct. However, the manufacture sent this email to me this morning raising more questions.
"Thank you for contacting Frigidaire. The drum is suppose to turn clockwise. If it is turning counter clockwise, we suggest that you get you appliance serviced."
What do you think? I will check the air flow and also wait for your opinion.

I think that you should check the air flow out of the back exhaust vent of the dryer. If the dryer drum is turning the correct direction, then you should feel good air flow out of that vent.
