LG WM2277HW Thermistor (tE) issue

LG WM2277HW has error code tE, which is the thermistor. Information on this and other sites indicate I need to check the thermistor to determine if a cable has come loose or a part need to be replaced. My question is that, although quite capable, I am not familiar with washing machines. I feel confident that I can fix the problem, but I want make sure that, as long as I've unplugged my washer, I will not, on my way to the Thermistor, encounter anything I might shock myself on.

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.

The only thing I can think of are capacitors but they may not be in the area that needs attention. Here's a pic of some if you aren't famailiar with them. I've highlighted in red the ones that are most likely present.LG WM2277HW Thermistor (tE) issue - a924576.jpg

Thermistor is made up of 2 words thermal (heat) and resistance. so a change in heat, increases or decreases resistance in electric cct. if u put a multimeter on lowest reading ih ohms, u should get a very low resistance, if its ok. if it doesnt move, even when u reverse probs, it's open cct and bust. needs replacing. its like a thermostat. u can put it in hot water and then take another reading and resistance should have gone up if its ok. worth doing as its fascinating to wattch it rise or fall. bit like charging and discharging a capacitor...lol

How to fix the thermistor


The TE error code indicates a heating error, usually caused by a faulty thermistor. First, attempt to clear the error by unplugging the power cord, waiting for 10 seconds, restore the power, and restart the wash cycle. If the same problem happens again, close water tap, unplug the washer because the unit may require service.

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 error code


btw...the thermistor can be found easily by tilting the machine on its back. It is mounted to the back of the drum housing. I removed mine after getting a "tE" error and cleaned it and replaced...no problems since!
