  • 9215 May 26, 2009

    Sorry come to find out it was Te code, manufactuer stated to unplug it for a few sec and see if that reset the board, well it didn't. If you put it on a cycle it will start to fill w/water and start to spin then stop and falsh the Te code.

TE means that the temperature sensor is faulty. TE = TEMPRATURE ERROR NORMALLY THERMISISTER OR ELEMENT FAULT

Often this is caused by a leak from somewhere, possibly the soap dispenser but unlikely. Fairly straightforward and not too expensive to repair.
--------------------- Quick tip: 

During the wash cycle, press & hold the temperature button. This displays the current temperature of the water via the temperature sensor, this will tell you if the sensor is working or not
---------------------------- also try this  you will have  to remove the top panel of washer and disconnect all wiring clips and tubes from the off white rectangular plastic box monted in washer towards the top left. there you will see the thermostat.Then remove all the screws out of the thermostats and pull  them out and cleaned them. What you will  find  will that they all will  be scaled over probably by hard water. you   take  the rubber cap off box filled it with water and shook it up and flush it out. put back together and check out.it will mostly work if the thermostat is proper.if not then replace the thermostat.
------------------ to remove the thermister ,After pulling the lid and finding it location- you  had to do is flip washer on its back, the bottom of the washer cabinet is open and pull the thermistor out it is in rubber grommet and easily pulls out.
the thermostat and thermister are one and the same.so dont be confused in names. you can get new thermostat at  www.repairclinic.com or at  www.partselect.com
thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

    Hi,



    Please refer to page 17 of 44 of the repair document pasted bellow:



    http://136.166.4.200/contents/Laundry/WM...



    heater or thermistor fault.
    The machine may have stopped in heat pause, and is waiting for the water to reach the correct temperature before advancing on. Check the heater, heater connections, thermostat connections and the connections on the timer, (looking for a burnt out terminal or wire).Check for wear of the wiring insulation allowing the bare wire to short out on the machine frame. Heater is located at bottom of drum. If testing with a multimeter, disconnect the wiring and take a resistance reading across the terminals - should be around 20 ohms. If heater is blown (broken internal heater wire) it will give an infinite resistance. There should be no continuity between the either terminal and the metal sheath of the heater - if there is, there's an internal short circuit. When removing heater, disconnect wiring, undo central mounting nut and prise it out of its rubber seal - may require some effort. Replace heater, use sealant when refitting rubber seal and ensure it is fully pushed into the recess in the backplate. Make sure the element locates into mounting bracket inside the drum.(look inside the element with a torch and you will see mounting bracket). This bracket ensures that the moving inner drum doesnt strike the element and damage it.

Is it T3 or the TE code? The TE error code means the thermistor needs to changed. You will need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this issue.

Wait...I did find someone who asked this question previously and an LG expert answered with:
"I had this problem on my lg steamwasher wm2688hwm.
I had to remove the top panel of washer and disconnect all wiring clips and tubes from the off white rectangular plastic box monted in washer towards the top left. Then i took the screws out of the thermostats and pulled them out and cleaned them. What i found was that they had all been scaled over probably by hard water. Then i took the rubber cap off box filled it with water and shook it up and flushed it out. put back together and works just fine now."

Washer machine erroe code oe


The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.

Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter.
