I am having difficulty finding a Tub Thermistor for my LG Washer Model WM2501HWA. I have already replaced the heating element and it still displays the TE error.

Hi there, I can’t find any information on a thermistor for WM2301HR… Is that a standard one for all LG Front Load washers?

The thermister and heating element are good and I cannot find a broken wire so I could really use some advice as I do not know what else to do. It Is an LGwm2101hw and the old thimister left a black carbon mark when it blew out
