If you see the TE error on the display of the LG washing machine, it occurs a few minutes after the program starts in normal mode. When the hot water mode is selected, you will notice that the water stays cold even after half the cycle has passed.
TE error means a problem in the heating circuit. In most cases, it is a sign of a breakdown. For an urgent need to wash, choose the option of cold water. Before calling the wizard, there are ways to try to handle it yourself.
Sometimes the error occurs due to a temporary software glitch. It can eliminate by restarting the washing machine. To do this, it is disconnected from the outlet and stays like this for 10-15 minutes, and then starts again from scratch. It is also worth checking the wiring between the control board and the heating element - it may have moved away.
If the TE error appears constantly, immediately after switching on, does not disappear after a reboot, then it indicates such malfunctions:
|Breaking||Causes||How to eliminate|
|The water is not heated. The high temperature program hangs in the middle.||TEN broke. This is the most common reason.||Installation of a new heating element.|
|The error is shown after a couple of minutes or during the washing process, the cycle stops.||Failure of the control board.||Re-soldering tracks. If the processor is faulty, replace the board.|
|The water is not heated, the program is interrupted.||Broken temperature sensor or thermistor.||Thermistor replacement.|
|In models with a drying function, an error appears when switching to this mode.||The sensor responsible for the drying process is faulty.||Installing a new sensor.|
|The code is displayed periodically.||Damaged wiring/contacts.||Repair or replacement of wiring.|
