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.

Why ar m201 sharp copier shows error h2 00

it means that the thermistor in the fusing unit is open

which could indicate that it may have become faulty or is because of power fluctuations, a simple crop 14 reset should remove the error, but if it returns it should be looked at by a qualified sharp technichian

Thermistor fuse Toshiba e-studio 232

There are only themostat and themistor on the fuser unit.
If C440 sign on frequently, probably the themistor is deformed, which need to be replaced.
For 1st C440 sign on, try to reset it by entering 08-400, change the value appear on screen to "0", then reboot machine, if the machine is working, just leave it.
If not, C440 will sign on again, then only u replace the themistor.
To replace it very simple, take out the fuser unit, reverse it, and u will see a black plastic compartment, open it up, and u will see the themistor.

How to repair error code f 05

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.

Anyone know what code t0 means? Dryer will start but never finish drying clothes regardless what cycle you're on.

To = Thermistor Open error.

The Thermistor resistance is very high.

Check for:
- Clogged lint screen.
- Restricted vent system.
- Check Thermistor resistance.

Replace themistor if out of range.

Hi i have a maytag front loading washing machine its about 4 years old haven't been able to find a model number either on the back or inside the door i get an number 5 error. the machine starts it filling...

I believe you are describing a tS code.

If it is tS showing it is an indication that the termistor is shorted. The thermistor is the temperature sensing device used on this dryer.

Before replacing the themistor 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.

LG front loader te code

A "tE" error code is more than likely the "thermistor" as CoolTech stated but fortunately it is not that difficult to service and doesn't require a technician (warranty expired for me, consider this for your own situation). It supposedly can't be serviced by untrained individuals (thus the directions to call for service) but 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...cleaned and problems since! No screws needed to be removed. My thermistor is a small, round, black rubber grommet with the metal sensor pushed through the center. I removed the entire grommet. It easily pops back into place. The face of the grommet and sensor appeared to have buildup from hard water which easily came off without the use of cleaners.
