1 – Be sure to clean out the lint filter in the dryer as a blocked lint filter can cause the TE error.

The Error code TE is telling you that the dryer sees the Thermistor is shorted out. If shorted, it cannot read the heat temp and needs to be replaced.

On most Samsung dryers the Thermistor is attached to the vent or motor area under or behind the drum. The Thermistor is a small plastic part that is about one inch wide. You will see there are 2 wires attached to it. Once you locate it you need to replace it to fix the TE error code problem. See service manuals below to assist you, also a video at bottom.
