I have Error Code TE or te showing on my Samsung Dryer. What does TE mean? Once I know the condition and meaning of TE on my Samsung Dryer, can you tell me what part to replace and where it is located? This will be very helpful in letting me fix the dryer myself. Can you also link to the part or parts that need to be replaced to clear the TE error code? Also link to or display a Samsung Dryer service manual or troubleshooting guide? This will allow me to save money and understand how my dryer works and where all the parts are located for future reference.
TRY THIS FIRST BEFORE REPLACING ANY PARTS WHEN GETTING THE TE ERROR CODE ON YOUR SAMSUNG DRYER:
1 – Be sure to clean out the lint filter in the dryer as a blocked lint filter can cause the TE error.
2 – Look at the back of the dryer and check that the exhaust vent is not clogged or blocked.
3 – When you know for sure that both the lint filter and the exhaust vent is not blocked, remove power to the dryer, check the wire harness and all wiring connections from the thermistor to the control board.
4 – If you find loose wires or disconnected wires, resecure them or replace the wiring harnesses if found bad.
5 – If the wire connections check good you will need to then use a multimeter and check the Thermistor resistance.
6 – The meter should measure resistance on the Thermistor around 10,000 ohms.
7 – You will need to replace the thermistor if resistance is off. See below for further more detailed instructions…
WHAT DOES TE ERROR CODE MEAN?
Samsung Dryer te Error Code Condition = Faulty Thermistor AKA = temperature sensor.
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.
WHERE IS THE THERMISTOR LOCATED?
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.
