If it was that thermistor, you wouldn't have to replace the entire heating element.

Oh, really? That would be awesome. Is this the right thermistor, or is there another type that's used in the heating assembly? http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Thermistor/1268202

Thanks for letting me know! :D

The picture of that particular thermistor will not work on your tub. Your service manual was giving you the wrong picture of your actual tub and heating assembly. If you order directly from LG you will have to order a new element as the element and thermistor come together(for your tub/heating assy). But I would suggest prehaps heading to your local appliance place and asking someone if they prehaps have one that you could have.  I wish I had the part number of the thermistor for you, but I do not.

Ohhh, okay. That's a good idea. Hopefully our fix will work, but if it doesn't, it's nice to know we have options to try. Thanks!

It worked! ;D

At least, the drain hose replacement arrived, it's in the machine, and we've run a few loads of laundry without any leaks or recurrences of the TE error. So it looks like cleaning the corrosion/rust off the wash thermistor did it. Woohoo.

Thanks for all the tips and links and support. You guys and this forum saved us a lot of floundering. ;)
