Question about Washing Machines
If you mean the motor thermistor, it is attached to or build into the motor windings, It should close when the motor cools down, allowing the motor to run again , untill it overheats again.

The error is describing a tS code. It is
an indication that the thermistor is shorted. The thermistor is the temperature
sensing device used on this dryer. Before replacing the thermistor check for a
clogged lint screen or dirty vent pipe.If these are clear and you are still
getting the code the thermistor would need replaced, the resistance of the
thermistor should be about 10K ohms at room temperature.
thermistor is located on the blower housing in front of the motor.

The "F05" error code is indicating a Water Temperature Sensor Error. Does it take long time for the water to get hot when you initially start it? If the water is cold entering the tub when hot water or warm water is selected it possibly could cause the error. It only makes sense because after you cancel the cycle and restart the washer it does OK because the cold water has been purged.
There is a thermistor located on the heating element mounting bracket which is used to monitor the water temperature. The heating element w/thermistor will be located on the lower back portion of the tub. You might find a loose wire connection on the thermistor. You will need to remove the rear panel to access the heater and thermistor. You will need an ohm meter to measure the resistance of the thermistor. See images below for specifications. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord before removing the rear panel.
If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, the "F/05" error code will be displayed.
