Question about Kenmore Microwave Ovens
There is no error TE. The display is probably trying to say sE, which means that you have a stuck button in the control pad.
Try disconnecting power for two minutes to reset the display (trip the main circuit breaker). If that does not clear the error , then the keypad is defective and must be replaced. In that case call the Kenmore number listed on the owners manual to get further instructions.

The TE error code is an internal component failure and will need to
be repaired by a service technician.
You can try to clear the error code by pressing the stop key. If you already tried this, try to clear the code by unplugging the microwave for 5 minutes. Plug it back in and see if you can set the clock and use it normally. If the error code returns or you see a different error code in the display, the microwave will need to be serviced by a technician if you want to continue using it.
I would suspect a button is shorted on the touch pad, but this will usually throw the code -SE-. It is not advisable to attempt to repair the microwave yourself because of the large mount of electricity a microwave can store even when unplugged.

"TE" error code is caused by a faulty thermistor.
Thermistor rarely fail in washers; the most likey cause of the "TE" error is:
1. Loose wiring at the control panel (directly behind the cycle selector knob)
2. Broken wire at the Thermistor (located at the bottom /front of the tub)
To access the wire plug connectors at the Control Panel: remove the top cover of the washer.
Stand in front of the washer and look for the plug connectors behind the Control Panel. Pull apart the plugs and re-install. Test the washer. If the "TE" error still occurs: it will be neccesary to remove the front panel as well (two sets of special plier-type tools are needed).
Inspect the Thermisotr closely: with good lighting. If there's a break in the wire it will be at or near the black sheathing / heat shrink material.
Though not as common: a broken wire at this location is *usually* caused by excessive vibration during the spin cycle. This is also *usually* found on the older LG washers that are in *wood floor* laundry rooms.
Hope this helps.
