Just to add my 2 cents...

The inlet thermistor is a part of the high limit thermostat assembly and there not suppose to be any heat at all if the thermistor is bad.

The major problem in my opinion is: the dryer heats up while the motor is not running. The cause of this problem could be: a bad (shorted) motor centrifugal switch or a heating element shorted to ground. It's easy to diagnose with a simple Ohmmeter.

Here is the Tech sheet.
