    We have the same problem, TE error code / Thermistor.  Unit is only one year old.

    We have the same problem. Where can we get a thermistor? When I called LG's parts suppliers, it was $78 and they didn't have any instock, and had no idea when they would.

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.

What is BE error code on LG TROMM WM1814CW


According to page 21 of the owner's manual, the following are known error codes: IE= Water Inlet Error, OE=Drain Error, UE=Unbalance Error, dE=Door Error, tE=Thermistor Error, FE=Overfill due to Faulty Water Valve, PE=Water Level Sensor Error, CE and LE=different Motor Errors, and PF=Power Failure.


you have a BE error thats not listed i think its something to do with the motor in the pump
i think it could be the pump
take it out and examine it for any sign of rust/ damage etc
this could be a crack in the housing inside the pump causing a leak not always leaking out just into the inside of the pump motor
although OE is drain error BE maybe pump motor error
as its closer to the CE and LE other motor errors

isolate the mains supply too the machine and wait a couple of mins and plug it back ?does the error clear
if it is there when you didnt select a cycle then its something thats detected pre runtime

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.

Washing machine error code is tE, something to do with the power?


tE stands for Thermistor Error. This is a problem having to to with the water temperature, possible causes are: water heater was low on hot water, or the thermistor gave a faulty reading. It can be corrected by unplugging the machine for 10 minutes and restarting the machine.

If this helps you please rate my solution.

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!
