Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
That's 'te' standing for temperature error/ heating error. Before you call an engineer try emptying the washer then pouring a couple of kettles of boiling water into the drum and leaving for 30 minutes then see. Another thing is to empty a couple of packets of limescale remover into the drum together with a couple of kettles of boiling water (again!) and leaving overnight. It possibly needs de-scaling anyway ;-0) If these fail it will be an engineer call, sorry ;-0(
Good luck, John C

The PDF Owner's Manual from Product Support contains error codes. It is not the exact same model but frequently the same product line uses similar components with similar error codes. Its worth a look anyway. Hope this helps.

I have a LG WM2487HWM front load steaming washer. It has had the regular odor/mildew/mold problem from almost the first month. Recently the machine has struggled with draining all the water. Now it leaves...

Leave the door open for 24 hrs after wash for Odor problem. You need to clean the rubber gasket around the door with 1:4 Bleach/Water (It's Fun!...Not!) First though. Not draining? You need a New Drain Pump! Go to YouTube and place LG Washer not draining. They have 20 videos on how to repair...Very Easy!

If the error code is DE, then you need the door lock assembly.

I will need the full model number to find the right part number.

My lg tromm washing machine has an error code LE

Empty Washer and unplug. Hold the start button (arrow with two lines) for 10 seconds. Plug back in and put on the Rinse and Spin cycle (right hand side) I went ahead and ran that cylce (31 minutes with some bleach) and all worked well.

If problem persists call CSR. 800-243-0000

We have an LG Tromm WM2487HWM that has an upside down f and e error code. The machine will sometimes start and then quit after about a minute into the run. Unplugging and replugging in does not seem to...

We have the same problem on our washer - same model as yours. Home Depot has the warranty on this thank goodness we bought it. They replaced the motor and water pump - didn't fix the problem longer than a month. A new repairman has come out and says we need a new heater and thermistor (whatever that is - I checked - not a thermostat but possibly related??) Approx a $300 fix. Good luck.

Clean the drain filter out. Then while the filter is out, take a flashlight and look into the filter hole. We had this problem and discovered a metal bottle top lodged in the hole which goes to the pump. Removed the bottle top easily and the machine works fine.
