The lights flashed on mine for about three months before smoke started to pour out of it during the drying cycle. It nearly burned my house down.

SOURCE: 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.

There are a few problems that can occur with the diswasher door assembly. These usually involve the latching mechanism, the door seal, the counterbalance spring assembly or the hinges.
1) The door latch plate can occasionally become out of alignment. Some door latch plates are adjustable, some aren't. If yours is adjustable, try loosening the retaining screws and repositioning the plate. It's trial-and-error, so have a lot of patience. If this doesn't work, then the latch needs replacing.
2) A new dishwasher or a newly installed door seal can be difficult to close for a while until the seal softens and compresses over time. You can try adjusting the latch, if possible.
3) If the door feels unusually heavy, there could be a problem with the counterbalance spring assembly. These counterbalance assemblies allow the door to open and close easier and are held by two springs. On some dishwasher models, holes are positioned in line so you can re-tension the springs by moving the spring hooks to other tensioning holes. If any of these springs break, they will need to be replaced as a pair.
4) The door hinges might be bent. They can seldom be adequately fixed and should be replaced.
hope this helps

Thank you for your post, friend!
I see that you need assistance in repairing a squeaky door on your Frigidaire dishwasher. The best way to quiet down a squeaky door is to pinpoint the cause of the squeak. This could be an issue with your hinges, springs, or the cables. You can use a lubricant such as WD-40 on your those parts to see if that will help alleviate the squeaking. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Thank you for your post, Jacques Lanthier!
From what you have described it sounds like you could have a loose or bad gasket on your Frigidaire dishwasher. Typically, to clean any seals you would remove them and wipe them off with a rag and warm water. If you continue to experience an issue with water leaking I would recommend replacing the gaskets. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

Hi friend, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that the panel on your Frigidaire dishwasher has lights on the far right side of the panel. I would recommend a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker in the off position for ten minutes. The lights on the right side of the panel could be providing a warning to inform the panel that something is wrong. A reset could provide an error code for further diagnosis. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt
