That is correct, the belt tension pulley allows only one way rotation or the belt will be directed off the tub. Is it making noise or giving other trouble or were you just concerned about the drum rotation direction?

Expert:  Kelly replied 7 months ago.

If you are not having any other trouble with it, the drum is rotating in the correct direction and you have nothing to worry about. Be sure the vent line in the back is clear, as short as possible and not pinched or kinked.
