Code "Cl" on Frigidaire means the door is not closed. Could be a bad door latch.

How do I fix a CL error code on my LG dishwazher

The CL indicates that the control panel (or child) lock is active. The method to toggle the lock on and off depends on the dishwasher model. For most LG dishwashers, either press and hold the Rinse and Spray buttons or the Dual Zone button (if the dishwasher is running a cycle) for 3+ seconds.

Please add a comment with the model number of the dishwasher if you want the specific CL toggle option for your appliance. The control lock is useful when you clean the control panel. It also keeps a child from altering the cycle or starting the appliance when it should be off.

I hope this helps.

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

Why won't my dishwasher start?

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Based off the information you have provided "CL" stands for close door. If you continue to experience an issue with the "CL" error code I would recommend having a professional come out to your home and diagnose your appliance. "CL" could be a problem within your door switch or main control board. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Why does display flashes "cl"?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the display is flashing "cl" on your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# GLD2450RD. The "cl" code you are seeing is stating to close your dishwasher door. The status indicator lights will also flash to indicate current cycle status. If the door is closed, try pushing it in just to make sure. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire gallery dishwasher CL code

CL is a generic clear code. Reset the unit at the household circuit breaker for about 10-15 minutes, and then retry. If the same code comes up then you have a communication error with your main control board, and will require a repair.

Frigidaire Dishw. Error code CL

this just happened to ours and it turned out to be the gasket that seals the door.

when you see the CL error and the door is indeed shut, pull gently back on the door. if you hear a click and the unit starts running again, it may be the gasket.

ours lost it's ability to keep the seal, allowing enough 'play' in the locking mechanism for it to think the door was not closed.
