The Te code means Broken Thermistor. You need to replace the thermistor. You will need to get a service person out to replace it.

Good Luck

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.

My washer has a te error code, lost the owners manual, what does the te code mean and how do we fix it?

It means the THERMISTOR is faulty and most likely needs to be replaced. It's about a 7-10 dollar part, plus shipping. The problem is, you'll need to take the machine apart to replace. The best thing to do, is contact a professional for repairs.

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,

TE message. machine turns on but nothing else. I found out the message means a thermastor problem

Perhaps the error is "[-E" and it means the thermistor is out of error. Replacing it will correct the problem
