Tip & How-To about Dishwashers

L.G CL CODE/ERROR Good Day, Today I will explain to you how to remove the annoying CL code/error on all L.G Dishwashers & Washing Machines. Firstly let me explain let me state that this code is not in fact, an error code. It is actually there to tell you or warn you, that Child Lock has been activated. This feature was added because small children usually fiddle with controls on washing machines & dish washing machines. It is an easy way to lock in an operation and then be assured that it cannot be changed afterwards. The process usually involves you entering a method of washing (like pre-wash, extra dry, quick wash, economy wash etc), then activating child lock - and then have peace of mind that no wandering fingers will tamper with your settings... How to deactivate/activate Child Lock: Here are some examples of various L.G washer Front Panels: All you need to do is press these two buttons connected via a small child face icon. On certain dishwashers you would need to do this while the door is open. That's it! All you need to do. I hope this Tip has helped you. Kind Regards JEDEMEYER1 * If this Tip helped you in any way, please rate it

My dishwasher FDB2510LCC1 get a cl code while washing and stays running on the wash stage until it is shut off

Hello Randy, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code of "CL" this means close door. The dishwasher may not be sensing that the door switch is closed. The "CL" means that you could have a possible issue with the main control board or door latch. I would recommend checking to make sure the latch does not have any visible damage. This could also be a miscommunication within your dishwasher and a reset may help clear it out. In order to reset the dishwasher you would flip the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. We hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt
