No. As long as you bought the rollers for that model the drum will rotate the way it should. I believe they changed the replacement rollers for some maytag dryers.

Should not make any significant difference to the drum rotation If they are  same diameter Also suggest you check the drum surface where the rollers contact it. If the surface is in bad shape for whatever reason be sure to clean it  before you reassemble. Also check the glides at the front cover to make sure they are still present and not worn away. These support the drum at the front end.

I did not recall any of the Maytag units having rollers in the front but the same conditions apply. If you are reusing a set of rollers I usually take them off shafts, clean the shaft and roller bearing surface, lube them slightly with hi temp grease,  and switch the LH to the RH side as some tend to wear the shaft and roller bearing slightly more on one side than the other. When you take the roller off be sure to put them back on the shaft in the same orientation.
