    I have a samsung dryer the yields a “te” error whenever it is run with a damp load. I have cleared the vents and replaced the thermistor. The ventilation shows plenty of airflow but the dryer is still getting too hot. What would my next step be?

      you need to be through in cleaning and checking your vents, to include removing front lower silver fan cover, to then remove white plastic hamster wheel fan center nut, to access removal of remaining fan housing, to expose visual inspection of the starting point of the hot air exhaust pipe that runs underneath the drum in which is the before and connected to the exterior pipe that leads outside. That’s where a mouse nest was my menace. Also check exterior pipe blockage visually, and to confirm a clear pipe from dryer to the outside, just remove it temporarily from behind the dryer for a couple of loads to see if TE error goes away. If err goes away you then have a clogged exit pipe, if not, your issue is still somewhere within the dryer. Also, re check thermistor you just replaced for 10k ohms with wires disconnected. If 10k ohms, look elsewhere. iF not near 10k ohms, then your new thermistor is bad too. if still looking for a solution after all that. Next ohm both thermistor wires from the thermistor to the control PCB while atleast one end of each wire is disconnected. Both wires need to be zero ohms. If not, fix or replace any open wires. Also check wire connections at the thermistor, and control PCB. Check for proper wall outlet voltage 120 volts + or – 10%. and proper third prong ground, < .5v. After all that above checks good, then lastly replace control PCB, for it doesn't know what to do with the thermistor signal. Don't forget to reinstall exhaust pipe.

        Also, make sure you first unplug power cord before servicing to avoid electrical shock.
