What direction should the dryer drum turn clockwise or counter clockwise?

Counter clockwise on a whirlpool kenmore. Clockwise on on all others. Just a guess.
Ain't really paid that much attention to it but I was thinking the whirlpool  blower is mounted to the rear of the machine and all the other blowers mount from the front. confused yet? :D I just looked up your blower wheel and it is Clockwise so I am going to say your drum turns clockwise.

I have only ever seen a dryer drum turn one way, the correct way.

Don't really know off the top of my head if that is clockwise or counter clockwise, sorry.
