Re: ERROR CODE : THEMISTOR PROBLEM OR WATER TEMP TOO HOT
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.
1E Water inlet problem > Condition : Not reached to the normal water level in spite of 10 minute water supply. Water supply problem. The inlet hose is kinked. The water pressure is to low (10psi) Inlet valve. The inlet water valve filter is clogged. The hall sensor. The impeller of Air guide is bound. Remedy : Check resistance of inlet valve ( 950-1300ohms) Clean valve. Check pressure. Replace the Air braker.
OE Drain error > Condition: The drain hose kinked or blocked. Wiring connections. The drain outlet of sump is blocked. The drain pump/motor or circuit is troubled : Remove kink. Check wiring. Measure the resistance of drain motor (20-40ohms) Replace the drain motor or repair the circuit.
E1 Leakage error > Conditon: Excessive RPM of washing motor happened during wash cycle due to water leakage. Possible cause: Water leakage in hose connections,water is leaked by damages. The motor water seal leakage of sump assembly. The height of drain hose connection ( sink drain hose ) is not over 20". Impeller of the washing pump is worn away.Replace the connections of hose. Check the point of damages and repair or replace the related parts. Correct drain connections. Replace the impeller of the washing pump.
FE Excess Error > Condition : Excessive water is supplied than normal water level (automatically drain pump operated. Possible cause: The inlet valve is troubled,or the controller.Possible cause: The inlet valve is troubled,or the controller. Replace valve or the controller.
BE (Thermal error) > Condition: the resistance of the thermistor not normally out put. Possible cause the inlet water temperature is very high(over 194°F) Wiring connections. Thermistor problem.Check temps to dishwasher 120°F needed. Check thermistor 11-14kohms at 77°F. Replace the PCB.
LE( Motor error ) > Condition : The motor is working abnormally. Possible cause : Wiring connections. The impeller of washing pump is locked. The rotor of washing motor is locked. The blade is locked.Correct wiring connections. Replace the cause of resrtiction. Replace the washing motor. Replace the PCB.
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.
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.
HE is a HEATER ERROR Possible causes ¥ The Circuit of Heater is troubled. ¥ The Thermistor is troubled. ¥ The Heater is shorted. ¥ The Relay Circuit is troubled. Possible solutions ¥ Repair the Circuit of Heater. ¥ Replace the Thermistor. ¥ Replace the Heater. ¥ Repair the Relay Circuit..
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) )
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.
