I took apart my LG Dryer to replace a felt liner, and when I reassembled it the dryer would not work and gave an error code tE1. I believe the problem relates to the connector into my power board that comes from the thermistor. When I took the wires out instead of disconnecting the 6 prong connector with blue, red, orange & green wires coming in, the 6 boxed receiving piece came out with the wire and I am concerned that it was possibly compromised. I put the 6 boxed receiving unit snuggly back on the board, and then put my omhs tester probes in the blue & orange connector (male end), and got a reading of 1 (when set to 20k). I pulled the thermistor and got the proper reading of 10.17. Is my wiring harness bad, or is there another problem with the board? If the harness is bad is that a difficult replacement? I am not an electrician, but can follow simple instructions.
ANSWER Hello Rando,
You will want to make sure that the connector is back in and locked in place. A common problem that occurs is the pin that goes into the connector has wings on them that allow them to lock into place and not come out. If it has slid back out a little because it is not locked in place it will cause the error. Double check and if it is locked in then it would be a harness issue.
