The TE error or fault code is to indicate a defective water temperature sensing thermistor. The thermistor cannot be repaired and will have to be replaced.

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

SOURCE: LG Washer

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.

SOURCE: FE code on LG Tromm washing machine, what is this

Hi. this code represents a faulty water valve. I would shut off the tap and inspect the water valve assembly inside the machine. If dissembling this machine is a problem and you are uncomfortable with the disassembling process, i recommend a quick service call. the water valve may have a malfunctioning solenoid.

please rate and god bless.

SOURCE: LG Tromm washer WM2077CW reading code LE

LE means "Overload in Motor" Unplug the washer, remove clothes, wait 15 minutes for motor to cool down. try again. If problem persists you'll need a certified technician.

SOURCE: LG Tromm washer WM2688HWM tE error code. Very easy

LG Tromm Washing machine te error. The manual says to call for service. Not much help there. The reason for the error is the thermistor circuit (resistive element that becomes less resistive as it increases in temperature). The thermistor acts as a heat sensor. In many cases, the error occurs because the wireing harness is too tight at the bottom of the drum and one of the wires in this circuit becomes disconnected with all of the movement of the drum (unbalanced load, normal cylcing etc).

1. Unplug the washing machine from the wall. The thermistor circuit is at line voltage (110 in the U.S.) and it will bite! So do this first before proceeding.

2. Move the washer out so you can get access to the back of it.

3. Remove the stainless panel (the one that is not painted, it is large (aprox. 16x18 inches). It is held in place by 4 phillips screws.

4. Locate the thermistor connection block near the bottom of the machine, at the center of the wash drum. It is the small white connector that has two wires running to it. One wire is dark blue, the other is light blue. Insure that neither wire has pulled out of the connector. If either of them have, repair the connector and provide enough extra wire ( aprox. 2") to provide cable relief.

5. If the cable connector and wires are ok, there are other solutions here that recommend either cleaning or replacing the thermistor.

Good luck to you.

Lg front load washer with a tE error code and switched the thermistor that was located when I took the top off the washer and it ran two loads fine but code is back...I noticed online they keep saying the...


As many suggest, the tE error means there is a thermistor error. On my machine, simply unplugging the machine, tipping the machine backwards (careful! ... I put a few blocks under the front legs so I could work under the machine)...and the thermistor was under the drum, with a 2-wire lead going to it. It was easy to unplug, tighten the plug (squeezing the connector), plugging it back in. The machine has now worked fine ever since this simple procedure with no failures.

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

I have a front load LG washing machine. Its two years old and it stopped working today and it is giving a code of TE on the read out. what does this mean? Any help would be greatly appreciated!


TE is a Thermistor error.

This can be a shorted Thermistor and or a bad heater element. These items are located at the front bottom of the washer's tub.

If you have a washer with steam function. It could also be the steam generator's thermistor and or a bad heater element. The steam generator is located just behind the dispenser’s housing on the top left side.

I can get you part numbers is you need them.

LE Tromm Washing Machine


i think you mean LG Tromm washing machine ... and the error code is LE ... thats a common failure with this machine .. often its cause by a defective " Hall effect sensor" this is used to detect the position of the wash basket ... if you are handy with tools then you can change it yourself at low cost ... but it does require removing a big bolt, the spin basket and several small bolts ... not difficult for a mechanic but probably more than aunt martha would want to tackle .. the URL listed below will give you good information on how to do that job ..
