Simple, Unplug washer, lean it back against the wall, brace it so it won't fall while you crawl under it. The thermistor is on the bottom front of the tub, some units twist out. Some you have to unscrew one or two screws. Download this, http://188.8.131.52/contents/Laundry/WM2277/WM2277xx_Service_Manual.pdf and look at page 28. The thermistor is to the right of the heating element. Make sure the connections are tight. Replace if you are still getting an error codefor a thermistor problem. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

SOURCE: te error code
btw...the thermistor can be found easily by tilting the machine on its back. It is mounted to the back of the drum housing. I removed mine after getting a "tE" error and cleaned it and replaced...no problems since!

To be more specific, unplug unit. Behind the machine are two plastic kick plates, remove to slide off the top. Once off, two top self tap metal screws and one screw behind panel wall, remove. Remove two detergent screws. Lift electrical panel and set on top of machine. Remove four top screws. Bottom drain has one screw in front, take out plastic cover and one screw in back. Take off rubber by opening door. With a screw driver, prey and lift up the brass spring ring and remove. Then the front panel should slide up and out. Be careful because electric wire is still connected, move to the side of unit. You will then be able to find the thermostat. Unplug and replace, you will need to use the same rubber bushing. Took me an hour, I’m not an appliance repair guy.

The heater circuit has failed if "HE" is displayed. Discontinue use and contact a service technician. The dishwasher requires servicing.
"TE" means the thermistor has failed or the temperature of the water entering the dishwasher is over 194 degrees Fahrenheit. Turn the temperature down on the hot water heater in the home. If the error code reappears, replace the thermistor.
By the sound of this your heating system is malfunctioning and needs service.
If you need more on this let me know, but it is either your temperature sensor or your heating element or control board.
