Re: 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.

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.
'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(
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.
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.
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 :-\
