Here is some more information,  

Tested and found 120v from Black to Gray, when reversed I have 120V form Black to White.  This should be correct.  I put a clamp on Amp probe on it and it is pulling .6amp while the motor is humming.  I believe this his should indicate that the board is not failing under load. But I could be wrong. 


I took a pin and turned the motor by hand and it does turn freely.  3 motors all do the same thing.  I took the original motor , cut the wires and hardwired it to a cord.  Black is the common so I connected to the N , I connected the white white wire to Hot and it just hummed, will not turn.  Strange very strange


Okay so the customer called me and said his friend who works for a big national store was at his house this weekend.   This gentleman said I have no idea what I am doing and the main control board needs to be rewired.  He told the homeowner that the dispenser uses a dual neutral control and you have to remove one of the neutral wires to work with the substituted main control board.   ??????? What????

210 is to hot?  I am using a thermal-couple on my meter and putting the tip in with the air filter.  I have done this for 15 years and 120-210 is about what I see on all dryers.  So please correct me if I am wrong the the average temp should be about 165 on high.   If you average out 120 and 210 you get 165

Yup 15 years of fixing broken junk and sometimes I miss the simple stuff.  Never to old to learn, thanks for the help, I thought I was going mad.
