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 "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.
