Question about LG Washing Machines

2 Answers

We have an LG Tromm WM2487HWM that has an upside down f and e error code. The machine will sometimes start and then quit after about a minute into the run. Unplugging and replugging in does not seem to help. The manual just says to unplug and call for service. Would this be the PCB gone bad or something else?

    Thanks for the feedback. I don't normally buy the extended warranties and didn't on this. We had the service guy come out and he immediately diagnosed as a thermistor. Had to practically disassemble the whole unit to get to it. $245 for parts and labor.

We have the same problem on our washer - same model as yours. Home Depot has the warranty on this thank goodness we bought it. They replaced the motor and water pump - didn't fix the problem longer than a month. A new repairman has come out and says we need a new heater and thermistor (whatever that is - I checked - not a thermostat but possibly related??) Approx a $300 fix. Good luck.

R u sure it is not an (LE) error code. Kinda looks like an upside down (F)? Very common on older LG washers. Indicates a hall sensor/ motor position sensor error.

I have a LG WM2487HWM front load steaming washer. It has had the regular odor/mildew/mold problem from almost the first month. Recently the machine has struggled with draining all the water. Now it leaves...


Leave the door open for 24 hrs after wash for Odor problem. You need to clean the rubber gasket around the door with 1:4 Bleach/Water (It's Fun!...Not!) First though. Not draining? You need a New Drain Pump! Go to YouTube and place LG Washer not draining. They have 20 videos on how to repair...Very Easy!

Lg tromm wd 85485 error code cl mean ?


Possible that the drain valve is clogged if the inlet line is working and so you need to remove the drain and back flush.Also check after the power plug is removed for few hours and see if the fault resets to start the machine only to show the error a few minutes later. if so clean the drain lines, check the inlet flow and the door switch.

LG Tromm washing machine model WM2487HWM has an error code. First letter looks like a capital E without the top horizontal line. second letter is an E


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
That's 'te' standing for temperature error/ heating error. Before you call an engineer try emptying the washer then pouring a couple of kettles of boiling water into the drum and leaving for 30 minutes then see. Another thing is to empty a couple of packets of limescale remover into the drum together with a couple of kettles of boiling water (again!) and leaving overnight. It possibly needs de-scaling anyway ;-0) If these fail it will be an engineer call, sorry ;-0(
Good luck, John C
