    the te is supposed to mean to replace the thermister, which was done by the repairman but it still does not work.

I had the tE error code on my dishwasher LDF7811ST and noticed that with the door half open the error would not appear. I faked the door being closed (pushed in the top latch (can be unlocked by pulling out with a paperclip after the test) after which the washer worked fine: suspected the wiring harness. Removed the stainless steel front and discovered quickly that 1 wire was cut (might have made contact with the door half open), 2 wires to the point where the insulation was gone and the bare conductor exposed (!)and 2 more were about to to be cut completely! I soldered and shrink wrapped the wires and the problem was gone. Made some pictures for evidence and plan to contact LG as this is a fire hazard!

The MOSt common reason for a "tE" error code is the temperature of the hot water from the hot water heater is greater thant 145 degrees (F)
Adjust your hot water heater down and measure the temp at the kictchen tap.
Good Luck!

I get a te code all the time and a he code from time to time.


from Lg this is the meaning of the codes.
  • The heater circuit has failed if "HE" is displayed. Discontinue use and contact a service technician. The dishwasher requires servicing.

TE
  • "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.

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.

Im receiving an OE error code on my LG Dishwasher Model LDF7811st. The machine runs for a little bit and then it dings a few times with the "OE" code and stops running. HELP please


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

Hi there I have a silver LG dishwasher..I am intermittentleey getting the Code PE. I have take the pump off the exit water pipe and chaeck for blockages etc... there are none. Any ideas?


Please confirm the model number of this LG diswasher.
On recent LG units, the avaiable error codes are: IE OE E1 FE tE LE
The PE code is abnormal. Can you confirm.
I would expect to see the error OE if water is not fully pumped out. Remove the filter from the sump area beneath the bottom rack. Look closely for debris causing a blockage/lock. Please get back to me with your findings and ask more questions as needed.

LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later


Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!
