Question about Washing Machines
Does this model have a thermistor? where's the PCB?
TE is mostly related to
temperature sensor wire and connection problem. Look for a broken or loose wire.

LG Tromm Washing machine te error. The manual says to call for service. Not much help there. The reason for the error is the thermistor circuit (resistive element that becomes less resistive as it increases in temperature). The thermistor acts as a heat sensor. In many cases, the error occurs because the wireing harness is too tight at the bottom of the drum and one of the wires in this circuit becomes disconnected with all of the movement of the drum (unbalanced load, normal cylcing etc).
1. Unplug the washing machine from the wall. The thermistor circuit is at line voltage (110 in the U.S.) and it will bite! So do this first before proceeding.
2. Move the washer out so you can get access to the back of it.
3. Remove the stainless panel (the one that is not painted, it is large (aprox. 16x18 inches). It is held in place by 4 phillips screws.
4. Locate the thermistor connection block near the bottom of the machine, at the center of the wash drum. It is the small white connector that has two wires running to it. One wire is dark blue, the other is light blue. Insure that neither wire has pulled out of the connector. If either of them have, repair the connector and provide enough extra wire ( aprox. 2") to provide cable relief.
5. If the cable connector and wires are ok, there are other solutions here that recommend either cleaning or replacing the thermistor.
Good luck to you.

Try pressing spin speed and soild level at the same time. Is the temperature about 10 degrees C over the the selected temperature? If no, then try replacing the main board.
Also make sure the thermister isn't loose. That could cause your problem.
If the main board doesn't fix it, then you have to replace the heater assembly.
Im actually looking the the service manual your unit as we speak.

"ND" means "Not Draining". I have the same washer, and when I get this problem, it's usually because I've tried to wash something that is causing over-sudsing (like a bath robe that was previously washed in an inefficient washing machine which left a lot of soap behind).
I find that turning the machine off, then selecting "Rinse and Spin" works. I suppose if it's a serious Not Draining problem, it could be that the drain hose is clogged somehow -- start by making sure they're not kinked.

LE is a water level issue.
- The part of the hose where the water level sensor is
located is damaged (punctured).
- The hose is clogged with foreign material.
- The hose is folded.
- Too much lubricant has been applied to the insertion
part of the air hose.
- Hose engagement error (disengaged)
- Part fault (Faulty internal soldering)
- The water level sensor terminal is disengaged.
- Main PBA fault.

To be more specific, unplug unit. Behind the machine are two plastic kick plates, remove to slide off the top. Once off, two top self tap metal screws and one screw behind panel wall, remove. Remove two detergent screws. Lift electrical panel and set on top of machine. Remove four top screws. Bottom drain has one screw in front, take out plastic cover and one screw in back. Take off rubber by opening door. With a screw driver, prey and lift up the brass spring ring and remove. Then the front panel should slide up and out. Be careful because electric wire is still connected, move to the side of unit. You will then be able to find the thermostat. Unplug and replace, you will need to use the same rubber bushing. Took me an hour, I’m not an appliance repair guy.
