Question about LG WM2277HSW XL Front Load Stackable Washing Machine

LG Tromm WD 12270 RD washer and dryer

Hi!

18 months ago I bought this front load LG TROMM washer and dryer. From one year now it shows sporadically the tE error code (manual says "unplug and call technician").

Since I live in a remote area, no technician would come, so I would really appreciate your help. For your info, I regularly clean all the filters, the detergent and softner cartrige (including the water inputs to this compartment) and drain the machine from time to time, using the drain hose at the bottom of the unit. I also clean regularly the rubber sealing between the drum and the body of the washer.

About one year ago, the tE error code showed up and the machine stopped in the middle of a washing cycle. I disconnected it, then plugged it in once again - the error code dissapeared and I could finish my washing. Since then, this code appeared sporadically, but lately it appears all the time. I can re-start the machine by manually rotating the drum and/or changing the cycle to cold water, so I can eventually finish washing the load.
However, the problem won't go away, so I would like to solve it once and for all.

Any ideas what to do?

Thanks,
Lia

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 :-\

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.

As many suggest, the tE error means there is a thermistor error. On my machine, simply unplugging the machine, tipping the machine backwards (careful! ... I put a few blocks under the front legs so I could work under the machine)...and the thermistor was under the drum, with a 2-wire lead going to it. It was easy to unplug, tighten the plug (squeezing the connector), plugging it back in. The machine has now worked fine ever since this simple procedure with no failures.
