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).

Hello,  I am am going to this exact same issue with an LG front load washer Mod # WM2487HWM   with the TE error code only.   It sounds as though this has a common issue with the wiring located near or at the wire harness connection for the Thermistor located at the bottom front of the tub.   this reminds me of the  the wiring for the RPS sensor and its wires at the bottom rear of the tub. I have run into that issue in the back several times with these LG washers.    Hopefully it will just be a bad wire as you mentioned and I will be in and out. .
