Question about Washing Machines
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

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."
