The F23 error code is an exhaust thermistor error. It indicates the thermistor is shorting out. This occurs after the thermistor heats up and that is why it happens after 2 minutes.

So even though I used a continuity meter on it and it beeps, it still may need to be replaced?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
the thermostat is good, what you need to replace is the thermister

I checked that too with the meter and it beeped as well...should I just replace it and see?

you cant get a reading on it that will be correct and if you jump it then it will also short it out
