Question about LG WM2688HWM TROMM SteamWasher
My machine is a little over one year old. Are premature water heater element failures common in these machines, or is it more likely the control board or thermistor that's causing the water-not-heating problem I'm currently experiencing with this machine? (I ordered a new heating element and the gasket clamp pliers special service tool, and will be servicing this myself)
I would also check that the unit is grounded. A non grounded unit can cause problems with the electronics

No, these heater normally should last a long time. Are you sure the heating element is bad and not the control board that feeds the power to the element?

For this error code you need to check both the water heater or element and thermistor, basically the washing machine is reporting a fault on the heating circuit with this fault code but it is not capable of identifying exactly where the fault actually lies.
On non-display panel models this fault code is denoted by the lights for 95, 60, 40 and cold being lit or flashing.
