There is a code CL on panel. Cannot start machine.

CL means the front panel child lock has been activated. Without knowing the make and model of your washing machine, I can't identify the correct keys to press and hold. On some brands, you need to press two keys and hold them for 5+ seconds. For others, you may need to hold a single key for 10+ seconds. You have to hold the appropriate key(s) until you hear a chime or the code disappears.

Often, there will be a tiny lock or child's face symbol on the key, underneath it or in the middle of a line between two keys on the control panel. The font for the symbol is much smaller than the rest of the type on the washer.

The model number is critical with some brands. One LG washer can toggle the child lock with the Tub Clean button. Another needs the Dry and Spin buttons held simultaneously. Yet another model, you need to press and hold End of Cycle. A fourth LG model toggles the child lock with the Options & Select keys.

If you add a comment with the make and model of your washer, I should be able to help you identify the child lock key(s) that you accidentally pressed.

Turn off child lock

Can you identify the model of the oven you need help with or anything like that? Not all child locks on ovens are configured to function or be utilized the same way.

I agree with the initial solution, depress the child lock button for at least 3 seconds.
If it does not clear, then try again.
Good luck.
