A "tE" error code is more than likely the "thermistor" as CoolTech stated but fortunately it is not that difficult to service and doesn't require a technician (warranty expired for me, consider this for your own situation). It 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 drum housing. I removed mine after getting a "tE" error...cleaned and replaced...no problems since! No screws needed to be removed. My thermistor is a small, round, black rubber grommet with the metal sensor pushed through the center. I removed the entire grommet. It easily pops back into place. The face of the grommet and sensor appeared to have buildup from hard water which easily came off without the use of cleaners.

    Good info, but I can not locate the thermistor. I have the back metal plate removed.

The themistor is a resisitive probe found at the bottom of the washing drum next to the heater connection. It fails and is not a matter of cleaning but replacement. There are simple service manuals availible online but the are simple and you must have some common sense in order to follow them. You must remove the top of the machine then the control panel and the the front of the machine in order to reach the part on the wm2688hwm. I would suggest ordering the part and having it in your hand first before tearing the unit apart to make reassembly easier. I purchased mine through Sears Parts & Service. (only took 45 mins talking to an east indian named CHAD). Tear down takes appox 30 min. with beer breaks and reassembly takes more if you wait a week for the part. (There is everyone confused yet)(Call for a service Tech if you are)

I had this problem on my lg steamwasher wm2688hwm.
I had to remove the top panel of washer and disconnect all wiring clips and tubes from the off white rectangular plastic box monted in washer towards the top left. Then i took the screws out of the thermostats and pulled them out and cleaned them. What i found was that they had all been scaled over probably by hard water. Then i took the rubber cap off box filled it with water and shook it up and flushed it out. put back together and works just fine now.

Te error code means the thermistor needs to changed.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this issue.  Sorry, no washy till fixed.

I have an washe - LG Tromm model # WM2277HB - and I am getting the error code te. What part do i need to repair this problem?


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,

LG wm2487hrm Washer not draining water. tE flashing. I drained water out of front and ran 2nd cycle same issue.


tE is a thermister error. It is a temperature sensor at the bottom front of the washer. tE can also be caused by a heater error. Some models have a seperate thermister, some incorporate it with the heater. It is very difficult to replace without taking the front off the machine.

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!

Te code is showing up. how do i fix this


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

The te code means a defective thermistor. but thermistors rarely fail in LG washers.

The most likey cause of the "te" error is:

1) Loose wiring at the control panel (directly behind the CYCLE SELECTOR KNOB)
2) Broken wire at the THERMISTOR (located at the bottom /front of the tub)


Test the washer. If the "te" error still occurs--it will be neccesary to remove the FRONT PANEL as well (two sets of special plier-type tools are needed).

Inspect the THERMISTOR closely--with good lighting. If there's a break in the wire it will be at or near the black sheathing / heat shrink material.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question's. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

Code error te


According to the manual, this is a control error, more than likely a sensor such as a thermistor. Call for service.

Code error problem


THIS IS TEMPORARY FIX, NOT A TOTAL SOLUTION. jUST TO GET WATER TO DRAIN AND RESET WASHER. , WITH WASHER POWERED OFF, PUSH AND HOLD START BUTTON FOR 4 SECONDS, RELEASE FOR 4, PUSH FOR 4 RELEASE FOR 4 UNTIL THE FRONT ALL LIGHTS UP AND DISPLAYS 88. sOON YOU WILL SEE YOUR CODES FLASHING, PRESS START BUTTON AS MANY TIMES NEEDED TIL NO MORE CODES FLASHING. tHEN WASHER WILL GO INTO DIAGNOSTIC TEST. aFTER THAT I DO NOT KNOW, BUT YOU CAN WASH 1 LOAD OF CLOTHES AND THEN PERFORM DIAGNOSTIC TEST AGAIN. THAT IS WHAT I AM DOING JUST TO HAVE A WORKING WASHER TOO MUCH TO FIX FROM WHAT I AM READING, SO GOING TO BU A NEW ONE ANYTHING BUT KENMORE. gOOD LUCK, HOPE THIS HELPS FOR IMMEDIATE RESCUE.

Unplug your machine for a few minutes or more and plug it back in. This will fix the LE error most of the time.
