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.

High Temp Error
This error is generated by the thermistor staying at a temp of 80c or higher for more than 3 seconds.

The ECS sensor or mainboard should be replaced. both easy to replace and parts are not that expensive. you can easily find the parts online. past experience states that the ECS sensor has either failed or is all dirty from food crud as it is located in the sun of the unit.

Have a whirlpool dishwasher model number 854241615810 The problem is that it doesn't complete a cycle and the start button flashes 3 times then a pause then 3 times . The water doesn't get hot eithe


The three flashes is the error code for a defective heating system. Usually this is a bad heating element that needs to be replaced, though it can also be a faulty control circuit or thermistor.

I get a te code all the time and a he code from time to time.


from Lg this is the meaning of the codes.
  • The heater circuit has failed if "HE" is displayed. Discontinue use and contact a service technician. The dishwasher requires servicing.

TE
  • "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.

LG dishwasher LDF modle 7811st error code tE just gives erroe code will not start.


TE error code means Thermistor Fault or Inlet Water Temp too High.

Check the resistance of the thermistor (located on the bottom of the unit in between 2 orange wires with single spade connectors which is the heating element) and it was good 11.7K ohms at 71 degrees room temp. Take the front door off and trace wiring. There is a white plastic wire loom and approx.6" up check the wiring being melted in the black mastic. The thermistor wiring is red and dark blue.

Generally, some lose or broken wires cause this. Keep us updated.

LG Dishwasher LDF7810 SST : tE Error (thermal error?)


Recommend that you closely check the water temp of incoming water. There is an error in some service manuals and if the inlet water temp is greater than 149 degrees (F) (some manuals incorrectly say 194 degrees), you could get an imediate tE error.
If that does not solve the problem:
_recheck_ the electric resistance of Thermistor. (11~14k Ohms at 77 degrees (F) )
Good Luck!

LG Dishwasher LD-2050WH with HE error code


This is a heater error. The cause is either a bad heating element or bad thermistor (the thermistor is part of the heater assembly). The heater assembly will need to be replaced.

TE error code


Note that there is am error in some guides. They say a maximum of 194 degrees (F), It should be 149 degrees. Re-check that inlet water temp is less than 149 degrees. Optimal and minumum temperature is 120 degrees.
A failing thermister is pretty rare.
Please report back with what has been found. Thanks.

INCREASE THE WATER TEMP AT THE HOUSE WATER HEATER SO YOU WILL HAVE 120 DEGREE WATER COMING INTO THE DISHWASHER. IF THE DISHWASHER IS NEXT TO THE SINK, PURGE THE HOT WATER LINE AT THE SINK UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY GET HOT WATER. THEN, START YOUR DISHWASHER.
