Washer is showing "TE" error even after replacing the thermistor

Hello, I just replaced the thermistor for our LG WM2277H front load washer. I've read the forums and apparently the "TE" error is due to that unit malfunctioning. The problem is that the newly replaced thermistor is still giving the same error message. Is there anything else that I can do or check or replace to get the washer fixed? Thanks.

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.

Front load washer LG wm2140cw with error code up side down FE. Any ideas what this means? Will start to run then error code shows up and it stops.


A tE error code on the display of the washer indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor.
  1. Unplug the washer from the power outlet for 10 seconds.
  2. Plug the washer back in and press the POWER button and then the SPIN SPEED button until No Spin is selected. Press the START/PAUSE button.
  3. Once the washer has drained, restart the wash cycle.
  4. If the tE error code appears again, close the water taps and unplug the washer. The washer will require repair service.

Lg front load washer with a tE error code and switched the thermistor that was located when I took the top off the washer and it ran two loads fine but code is back...I noticed online they keep saying the...


As many suggest, the tE error means there is a thermistor error. On my machine, simply unplugging the machine, tipping the machine backwards (careful! ... I put a few blocks under the front legs so I could work under the machine)...and the thermistor was under the drum, with a 2-wire lead going to it. It was easy to unplug, tighten the plug (squeezing the connector), plugging it back in. The machine has now worked fine ever since this simple procedure with no failures.

Make sure hall sensor is snapped in to correct location and is secure. Take a look at repair videos from repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com for guidance. And the error code is "LE" for sure not "tE" which is sometimes confused between the two.

Getting a "te" error code -- a heating issue?


I had the tE or te error (an L with a line through it) error on my LG front loader and my local appliance store sold me the thermistor for $7. I layed the unit on its side and accessed the thermistor through the bottom. It plugs into the bottom of the tank. Blue and white wires. No screws and 1 tie-wrap. (Leave the rubber grommet in - just pull the thermistor rod out.) Works like a champ!

Malfunction code tE


TE error code stands for thermistor error. You have to remove the front panel and ohm out the heating element. If you have continuity most likely it will be fine. There is a thermistor located next to the heating element that will probably need to be replaced. LG's are the only machine besides GE ref's that I have ever seen thermistors go bad on. There is probably an ohm reading you should get through the thermistor but unless you have an analog meter or a fluke most standard digitals wont read into mega-ohms. Removing the front panel is model specific. But i can tell you the spring around the front boot (drum gasket) needs to be removed and there will be some hidden screws at the bottom by the pump where the access panel is located.

Hope this helps _MJ_

TE message. machine turns on but nothing else. I found out the message means a thermastor problem


Perhaps the error is "[-E" and it means the thermistor is out of error. Replacing it will correct the problem
