Howdy all,

I had one heckeva Friday last week. My wife's Whirlpool dishwasher was leaking and I found it was the inlet valve. Bought one and went to replace it and shut off the water to the washer, at least I thought. Turns out I had a bad cutoff valve which did not turn off the water when it should have, they were ten year old contractor grade valves with cheap plastic bushings. So, you can imagine where this went. Flooded kitchen while I'm running for the water main cutoff.

 

We got around that disaster and, while the water was still off and unbeknownst to me, my wife tried to use the washer to spin dry some of the soaked towels.

 

According to my lovely bride, it sat for a little and then kicked out the dreaded "te" error.

 

Now, I know it is the THERMISTOR and I've checked the wiring behind the panel, it looks good. I haven't torn the front off yet as I'm nervous about not having one of the spring expansion tools, but dang they're expensive.

 

What I am curious is, could trying to run the washer without water cause this issue at all?

 

I had to wait until today to get to it as I had to work 12 hour shifts starting Saturday through yesterday.

 

I got my dishwasher running solid and the kitchen is dried out, but I'm down to my last undershirt. Forgive my ignorance on the subject, but I appreciate any help at all.

 

Brandon

A model number helps a lot; but here's a good article. I found it by entering "te code" in the google search box on the main page. The last LG washer I fixed had a broken wire near the thermistor, in the connector actually. I spliced the wires together directly and tied them down securely. I pulled the machine out from the wall a few feet, tipped it back against the wall to gain access to the thermister. From under the machine the broken wire was easy peasy....

Sorry, I had it in my mind to post the model, just forgot. It is a WM2455HG.


Also, it's on a pedestal, so I'l either have to remove the pedestal or come in from the front.
