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.

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.

Simple, Unplug washer, lean it back against the wall, brace it so it won't fall while you crawl under it. The thermistor is on the bottom front of the tub, some units twist out. Some you have to unscrew one or two screws. Download this, http://126.96.36.199/contents/Laundry/WM2277/WM2277xx_Service_Manual.pdf and look at page 28. The thermistor is to the right of the heating element. Make sure the connections are tight. Replace if you are still getting an error codefor a thermistor problem. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

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.

It means the THERMISTOR is faulty and most likely needs to be replaced. It's about a 7-10 dollar part, plus shipping. The problem is, you'll need to take the machine apart to replace. The best thing to do, is contact a professional for repairs.
