SOURCE: LE code on LG front loader

I had the same error code along with the drum "freezing" up. The first unit that was delivered 2 years ago leaked water from the detergent compartment and they sent a second unit. I have only had this unit for 2 years and I am very disappointed in the LG product. LG was no help on the phone and I the only people that could service it were 45min away from were I live. I took the advice of a posting on this website that it could be a part called the sensor assembly (#6501KW2002A) and ordered it from an online electronics store (www.mcminone.com). To get to the sensor assembly, you first unplug and take off the back plate that has 4 small screws. Next, unscrew the big bolt in the middle and take off the hubcap looking part the bolt was securing. Next unclip the two sets of wires on the bottom of the circle you are looking at (the set of wires to the right are connected to the sensor assembly you want to replace). Next you will unscrew the 6 or so smaller bolts to take off the circular piece that the sensor assembly is snapped to. Take it off, unclip the old sensor assembly and clip on the new one – and reassemble. This worked perfectly for me and the part only cost $18 bucks plus shipping. When working, this product works well but I will not be purchasing any LG products in the future.

It was actually NEC (apologies), I was able to fix as 'OE' means there is a problem with draining water, after manually draining water from wachine i removed the draining pump and pulled it apart a hair elastic was wrapped around turning mechanism of motor after removing that and putting back together the washing machine now works as good as new.

SOURCE: Thermistor for LG WM2688H

Treegirl,
It's not an easy job to do.  
You will need to remove the top panel, then remove the control panel and then the front panel to gain access to the thermistor.  The part is not available to the public and requires an authorized service tech from LG to take care of this problem.  You will need a special tool to remove the front door seal spring clamp.
But you can call customer service @ 800 243 000 and see if they can transfer you over to parts.  Just give them the model and serial # and see if they would be willing to sell you the thermistor part.  You will also need the door seal spring clamp removal tool to make the job easier.  
What city do you live in??
Good luck.

It's actually a DE error code which stands for drain error. Pull the little basket out that's behind the small door on the lower left front (where the drain hose is) and look inside. The drain pump intake is about an inch in on the left. Make sure there's nothing in there like a paperclip or hair pin. If possible reach in and see if you can turn the impeller. If it won't move there's something in there if it will turn then the motor is probably bad.

SOURCE: Thermistor for LG WM2688H

Thanks so much for the tip regarding flipping the machine on its side. I was about do the lengthy process of disassembling the front and I tipped the machine over instead. Lo and behold, there was the problem in plain sight right away -- the wire to the thermistor had simply come off the connector! I restripped the tip of the wire and crimped it back on the connector, problem solved. Didn't even need a new part!

i would guess you are getting a "tE" error code. that is a bad thermistor. pretty common. and it starts out as an intermittent error. it really is an easy fix. great online videos. check out appliancepartspros.com for both video and parts or repairclinic.com for video and parts. or youtube.com

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.

How to fix the thermistor


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 from retired Englishman in SW France,

'te' on LG's normally means Temperature Error- a heating element problem. Sorry but I suggest you need to call out a service engineer to attend to it ;-0(
Good luck,

Getting a "te" error code -- a heating issue?


I had the tE or te error (an L with a line through it) error on my LG front loader and my local appliance store sold me the thermistor for $7. I layed the unit on its side and accessed the thermistor through the bottom. It plugs into the bottom of the tank. Blue and white wires. No screws and 1 tie-wrap. (Leave the rubber grommet in - just pull the thermistor rod out.) Works like a champ!

Error code tE, customer service recommended replacing thermoster, replaced but still getting error code. Can it be something else or does something have to be rest?


Hi,
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:
WM-2277HW Service manunal
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
