SOURCE: washer is showing "TE" error even after replacing the thermistor

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.

SOURCE: LG Tromm washer WM2688HWM tE error code. Very easy

LG Tromm Washing machine te error. The manual says to call for service. Not much help there. The reason for the error is the thermistor circuit (resistive element that becomes less resistive as it increases in temperature). The thermistor acts as a heat sensor. In many cases, the error occurs because the wireing harness is too tight at the bottom of the drum and one of the wires in this circuit becomes disconnected with all of the movement of the drum (unbalanced load, normal cylcing etc).

1. Unplug the washing machine from the wall. The thermistor circuit is at line voltage (110 in the U.S.) and it will bite! So do this first before proceeding.

2. Move the washer out so you can get access to the back of it.

3. Remove the stainless panel (the one that is not painted, it is large (aprox. 16x18 inches). It is held in place by 4 phillips screws.

4. Locate the thermistor connection block near the bottom of the machine, at the center of the wash drum. It is the small white connector that has two wires running to it. One wire is dark blue, the other is light blue. Insure that neither wire has pulled out of the connector. If either of them have, repair the connector and provide enough extra wire ( aprox. 2") to provide cable relief.

5. If the cable connector and wires are ok, there are other solutions here that recommend either cleaning or replacing the thermistor.

Good luck to you.

SOURCE: LG WM2277HW Thermistor (tE) issue

To be more specific, unplug unit. Behind the machine are two plastic kick plates, remove to slide off the top. Once off, two top self tap metal screws and one screw behind panel wall, remove. Remove two detergent screws. Lift electrical panel and set on top of machine. Remove four top screws. Bottom drain has one screw in front, take out plastic cover and one screw in back. Take off rubber by opening door. With a screw driver, prey and lift up the brass spring ring and remove. Then the front panel should slide up and out. Be careful because electric wire is still connected, move to the side of unit. You will then be able to find the thermostat. Unplug and replace, you will need to use the same rubber bushing. Took me an hour, I’m not an appliance repair guy.

SOURCE: Thermistor for LG WM2688H

Yes - repeated tE error solved by simply making sure the connections to the thermistor are tight. I had repeated tE error codes - my wife called service, and when the service man I told him I thought that the tE was a thermistor error...he said "this machine (WM2455HW) doesn't have a thermistor - it is all solid state". It sounded suspicious to me ... and then he "placed his hands on the machine" (claiming that it wouldn't reset by the button combination) and pronounced that we'd need a $290 control board (you can get them for $155 at Sears) and $170 labor + tax.

All of this just didn't make sense to me since 1) a thermistor IS a solid state device, 2) an intermittent problem is RARELY a problem with the solid state electronics (though occasionally, components can overheat and fail intermittently), 3) everything I'd read suggested the tE indicated a thermistor error...and 4) intermittent errors are OFTEN caused just by poor connections on electronic devices.

Well, I dug into the machine, found a thermistor (clearly labeled on the wiring diagram inside the machine), tipped the machine on its back to get access to the thermistor, unplugged the connector to the thermistor and pulled it out of the rubber grommet that anchors it to the wash drum. Then I squeezed the connectors on the female plug end to make a tighter connection and reconnected everything. I then opened the main control board and unplugged all plugs and reconnected them in case there was a bad connection to the main control board.

Guess what - everything works fine now - NO PARTS - and yes, there was a thermistor in the washer (the service man wasn't correct in saying there was no thermistor).

I am concerned that this may be a real scam. Certainly it could be that the service man comes out, says it is a control board, charges for a control board and in fact replaces the board even though it is still good. Taking the old (and new-appearing) control board to the next house where the same claim is made. They can pocket the $290 and the service call.

I probably would not be so cynical about this except for the fact that the service man specifically contradicted what I said about suspecting a thermistor problem and told me specifically that there was no thermistor in this washer (my wife witnessed this).

How can you trust the service folks anyway?

Te error code


Possible causes:

1) Damaged/broken wiring at the THERMISTOR PLUG (very common)

2) Weak/Intermittent connection at the THERMISTOR PLUG (add small amount of dielectric grease to plug)

LG dishwasher LDF modle 7811st error code tE just gives erroe code will not start.


TE error code means Thermistor Fault or Inlet Water Temp too High.

Check the resistance of the thermistor (located on the bottom of the unit in between 2 orange wires with single spade connectors which is the heating element) and it was good 11.7K ohms at 71 degrees room temp. Take the front door off and trace wiring. There is a white plastic wire loom and approx.6" up check the wiring being melted in the black mastic. The thermistor wiring is red and dark blue.

Generally, some lose or broken wires cause this. Keep us updated.

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!

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

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_

Check the thermistor before you change it it can also be the PCB...

Check the temperature. (Test Mode) If the temperature is displayed, adjust the Inlet Water Temperature to 120 . If the temperature is not displayed, check the wiring connection. check the electric resistance of Thermistor. (11~14k at 77 ) Replace the PCB
