Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher
WHERE IS THE THERMISTOR? CAN IT BE REPLACED EASILY?
The thermistor is located in the sump assembly next to the heater element. The only way to get to it is to remove the dishwasher, turn it on it's side, remove the bottom panel to gain access to it. Before you do that, remove the front door panel to gain access to the wiring harness. About 1/3rd the way up from the bottom of the door, check to make sure that the wiring is not cut or damaged. If you do find a broken wire, repair it and it should run fine. Rarely does the thermistor go bad. Good luck.

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.
