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_

P11 IS THE CURRENT ERROR CODE APPEARING IN MY IFB WASHING MACHINE. PLS ADVISE


You are not very clear as to what else is going on with your washer.
Is it getting any power, are the dials on all cycles functional? Sorry I know what an IFB Washer is but there can be quite a few malfunctions. Please elaborate if possible.

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.

Getting "te" error message - help!


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'te' stands for Temperature Error in most LG washers I suspect; the water is not being heated. Probably the heating element is malfunctioning and it would appear you will need to make a service call ;-0(

Good luck,

Washing machine error code is tE, something to do with the power?


tE stands for Thermistor Error. This is a problem having to to with the water temperature, possible causes are: water heater was low on hot water, or the thermistor gave a faulty reading. It can be corrected by unplugging the machine for 10 minutes and restarting the machine.

If this helps you please rate my solution.

How I fix an error code on a LG wm2669hna washer that says TE error


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.

F35 appears. What is the problem and how to fix?


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

LG Tromm WD 12270 RD washer and dryer


Hi, I don't know how to fix your problem, Lia, unfortunately, BUT wanted to say "Thank You!!" for mentioning that you can get the washer to run through the cycle by rotating the drum and switching to cold water wash! We'd tried unplugging, leaving it unplugged overnight even, but the code/beeping started immediately after plugging back in. I'm kind of longing for an old-school washer right now, thinking of all the things that can go wrong with the newer digital-age computerized ones :-) If you see this, please share what you did to solve your washer problem! Hoping it's not too expensive to fix...or I should say to GET it fixed :-\
