Could I get a peak at this manual? I have a wm2487hwm giving me the "te" code. I examined the wiring. ohmed the thermistor out at 67.5kohms, put the machine back together and now it's totally dead! Any pearls of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!

<<<I have a wm2487hwm giving me the "te" code. I examined the wiring. ohmed the thermistor out at 67.5kohms>>>

**************************

The wash tub THERMISTOR should show 39.5 K ohms at 86 F.

I've never encountered a failed THERMISTOR on an LG washer.

A "tE" error is usually caused by a broken/failed wire at the plug which connects to the THERMISTOR at the front/bottom of the tub. This plug should be examined very carefully for a break in either the *white* or *blue* wires at the connector.
In some cases---the break in the wire will be *internal* and not visible.
It is necessary to perform a *continuity test* for both wires---from the plug/connector at the MAIN BOARD-to-the-plug/connector at the THERMISTOR. Have an assistant move/bend/flex the plug (at the Thermistor) to verify that the wiring is intact.

Test the HEATING ELEMENT next to the THERMISTOR---should show 12 to 18 ohms.

*******************************************

<<<put the machine back together and now it's totally dead!>>>

*******************************************

Verify that *all* of the plug/connectors behind the "jog dial" (Control Panel) have been re-connected (fully & competely until it locks).

NOTE: This washer is a *steam wash* model.
If an error "tE 2" is displayed---this would indicate that there's an issue with the THERMISTOR at the STEAM
GENERATOR (at the top of the tub assy).
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
