Machine wont turn on, front panel partially lit up


Make sure you don't have the child-lock or control lock function turned on. Check your owner's manual to find out which key activates and de-activates that function. If that's not it, then you probably have a bad control console.

L.G CL CODE/ERROR Good Day, Today I will explain to you how to remove the...


L.G CL CODE/ERROR <br /><br />Good Day,<br /><br />Today I will explain to you how to remove the annoying CL code/error on all L.G Dishwashers & Washing Machines.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />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...<br /><br />How to deactivate/activate Child Lock:<br /><br />Here are some examples of various L.G washer Front Panels:<br /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_23.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_24.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_25.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_26.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_27.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_28.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_29.JPG" /><br /><br /><br />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.<br /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_30.jpg" /><br /><br />That's it! All you need to do.<br /><br />I hope this Tip has helped you.<br /><br />Kind Regards<br />JEDEMEYER1<br /><br />* If this Tip helped you in any way, please rate it<br /><br />

I have a double draw dishwasher . the child lock key comes up and the dishwasher does not start


The lock button activates/deactivates the Keylock or the Childlock functions. This button has either a key or a padlock icon. I believe that on this model it is a padlock

Keylock

The Keylock feature disables all the buttons on the control panel.

To activate, press and hold the button until you hear one beep (3 seconds). The symbol

appears in the electronic display when the Keylock feature is activated.

Childlock

The Childlock feature locks the drawer and disables all the buttons on the control panel.

To activate, press and hold the button until you hear two beeps (5 seconds). The symbol

appears in the electronic display when the Childlock feature is activated.

To cancel the Childlock feature, press and hold the button until you hear one beep and the
symbol disappears from the electronic display.

This information can also be found in your product's Use and Care manual. If yours has been misplaced you can download or print one from Fisher and Paykel's website. http://www.fisherpaykel.com/customercare/userguide/index.cfm

If this doesn't work... And I've seen these units do some odd things. Try unplugging it for about an hour (if plug is not under sink you can turn of the breaker that powers the unit). Then plug it back in and see if that works. These dishwasher like many modern day appliances have solid state microprocessors in them which sometimes need reset just like a computer.

Hope this helps.

Child proof lock is on and dont know how to turn it off?


Child Lock is activated. Look for a picture of a small child's face on the Facial Panel (usually with picture of a lock) follow the arrows to 2 buttons, press and hold these buttons for 5 - 7 seconds. Child Lock will then deactivate.

Hope this helps

The lock light is "on" the front panel and the dishwasher won't start?


Sounds like the child lock feature has been activated.

Press and hold the "Lock" button for 5 seconds, and the lock light should turn off.

Electorlux dishwasher flashing CL


Error CL means that the child lock had been activated.
To unlock the machine you should put your finger up inside the handle and locate a slider switch, then push the switch to to the left side.
