SOURCE: code error te

According to the manual, this is a control error, more than likely a sensor such as a thermistor. Call for service.

SOURCE: My washer has a te

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.

SOURCE: 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!

How can I fix this?


Hello. There is an LE error that means "fill error". There is also a "tE" error that means "sump thermistor failure". You are probably getting the tE error--the thermistor is located at the bottom front of the washer tub in the center. If water is leaking from the bellow(the rubber part that seals tightly against the door), it might be spilling down onto the thermistor wires, shorting it out. With any leak, this will be an INVOLVED repair. My suggestion is to call for service--to reach anything in the front of the washer internally, the front panel must be removed--this is complex, and must be done carefully, especially if the bellow is leaking and needs to be replaced. I hope I helped you!

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.

I have an washe - LG Tromm model # WM2277HB - and I am getting the error code te. What part do i need to repair this problem?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'te' on LG's normally means Temperature Error- a heating element problem. Sorry but I suggest you need to call out a service engineer to attend to it ;-0(
Good luck,

Te code is showing up. how do i fix this


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

The te code means a defective thermistor. but thermistors rarely fail in LG washers.

The most likey cause of the "te" error is:

1) Loose wiring at the control panel (directly behind the CYCLE SELECTOR KNOB)
2) Broken wire at the THERMISTOR (located at the bottom /front of the tub)


Test the washer. If the "te" error still occurs--it will be neccesary to remove the FRONT PANEL as well (two sets of special plier-type tools are needed).

Inspect the THERMISTOR closely--with good lighting. If there's a break in the wire it will be at or near the black sheathing / heat shrink material.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question's. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

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

TE Code flashing what do this mean?


Error code tE is THERMAL ERROR. It is possible that the thermister has failed, but the most common cause is inlet water being hotter than 149 degrees (F) The optimal inlet temperature is 120 degrees minimum.
Always check that before you suspect hardware failure.
What did you find to be the problem? Thank for a reply.

tE error code means the thermistor has failed.  That part is located in the front of the drum next to the heater element.
