The inlet and outlet thermistors test OK with ohmeter and applied heat. In the diagnostics when I ran the blower exhuast test it has a current RPM value and says it is detecting I let it run 20 min and it was still detecting the value stayed at zero. When I ran the inlet thermister test the drum turned fine 30 sec in each direction several times each way. And the outlet thermistor moisture test showed 4.995 v. what else cam I test.
