LG WM-2277HW Error "te" THERMISISTER OR ELEMENT FAULT - How do I fix it
Washed a bulky load of horse saddle pads and this error came up - is it possibly a loose wire or connection? If so - where do I take apart the machine to check and what do I need to look for? You helped me once before with this machine's lint trap (BTW - the itty ***** rubber drain hose there for the trap is plugged with sediment - any way to clear that or change that? )
Thanks in advance with the price of fuel we just can't afford to call in a tech.

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.
TE is a thermister error. (temperture sensor) Located at the water
Supposedly can't be serviced by untrained individuals (thus the
directions to call for service) but the thermistor can be found easily
by tilting the machine on its back. It is mounted to the back of the
thermistor is a small, round, black rubber grommet with the metal sensor
pushed through the center.It easily pops
back into place.
Ive looked through a service manual for your washing machine and that give the exact same fault and solution you mentioned (tE = Heater Error - The THERMISTOR is out of order)
Here is the service manual for you to look at:

I had to scroll down to the troubleshooting section though but it has everything you would need to know in it.
I hope it helps
would that look like a tE or dE? TE is Thermistor error. Replace thermistor and check wiring back to control board. thermistor is accessible from bottom of unit reaching up to bottom front of tub. in middle of heater element it just pulls out of rubber seal. DE would be a door error. is door open or did it lock when cycle started. door lock asm should fix this.
