You're not seeing them because they're invisible. :)

aad3b435b51404eeaad3b435b51404ee (LM) and 31d6cfe0d16ae931b73c59d7e0c089c0 (NTLM) correspond to an empty password.

This blog post explains in a little more detail, with command line examples to show how an empty password is hashed.

  • Also, my personal opinion: this question - about the expected output of a well-known security tool - is reasonable and topical for this SE. – Royce Williams Feb 8 '18 at 3:19
