Question about LG WM2688HWM TROMM SteamWasher
Flashing "te" code . anything we can do ?? or is this no washy til fixed ???
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.

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.
