Fan motors have rotations, clockwise and counter clockwise, lead end and opposite lead end. If you are looking at the motor from the fan blade side and the wires are on the back (opposite) side of the motor then you are looking at opposite lead end. Then you need to determine the rotation of the blade. It will scoop the air, so turning the blade that direction will give you the rotation. They also sell motors that you can change rotation by changing certain wires they have added.
When you replace a motor you need to notice the rotation and order that rotation. which end of the motor you are looking at to determine it. Then order the same rotation when buying the new one.
Maybe there is a blockage in the air conditioning coil above the furnace? This happens when people have pets, or dont use filters. Single phase 120-240 volt motors won't run backwards if you reverse the wiring that's dc or three phase, you have to check the rotation of the wheel, the right rotation is usually marked on the blower case. Some motors will allow you to change the rotation but you have to check the wiring diagram. Also use new capacitors when they go bad the motor can run backward. God luck
You haven't mentioned the brand name. As the error code changes brand to brand I give some solutions. Check with your unit. e-5 Outdoor activation of compressor over heat protection-Clean condenser coil and check out door f.motor speed. If less replace capacitor. e-5. Blower motor lock Rotate manually. If hard to rotate, replace bearings or motor. If easy to rotate, replace capacitor. Please mention brand name and other full details to get solution quickly. Thanks.
Zuraxus what you are seeing is normal for a time. Here is how this dryer works. With a wet towel in the dryer, the first 5 minutes is testing to see if the load is wet. If so then between 5 & 10 minutes the dryer will turn on the 800 watt heater section (only in clockwise rotation). If still wet enough from 10 minutes to 15 minutes it will turn on the 1900 watt heater (heating only in clockwise). If still wet enough 15 to dry will turn on the full 2700 watts in clockwise and 800 watts in counter clock wise. That is how the cycle works. However it is hard to tell with the rear cover removed as the blower pushes the air thru the heater. Careful that by running with the back panel off you don't trip the high temp manual reset protector. So yes this sounds normal. What is the issue that is causing you to think the dryer isn't working proper?
