The CL code on the WD-10165FU indicates that the Child Lock (front panel lock) has been activated to prevent accidentally starting the washer. Press and hold the Temp and Eco/Rapid buttons simultaneously for several seconds until the CL code disappears. This is the method for several LG models

If this doesn't work, look at the panel on your washer for "Child Lock" or a small padlock symbol below a button's main function title or below a button or in the middle of a line between two buttons. This will be in a much smaller font than the other text on the washer. Press and hold the indicated button or buttons to unlock the safety feature. LG's support for the CL code does not give a specific button. See http://www.lg.com/za/support/product-help/CT20230055-20150159516623-others . The button you need could be labeled Pre-Wash, Tub Clean or Option. I found the How-To tip for power issues and the CL code on page 5 of the tips for the WD-10165FU at http://www.lg.com/za/support/product-help?categoryId=&superCategoryId=&searchChck=false&reSearch=WD-10165FU&search=WD-10165FU&symptom=&sort=₪tPage=5 .

I hope this helps.

(The Child Lock feature keeps the washer from being activated when you wipe the front panel clean. It will also stop a child from starting the washer with another child or pet in the drum.)

CL means that your washing machine's CHILD LOCK is ON. You can find two buttons Temp and Options in the panel. Turn ON the machine, press these two buttons together for 3 seconds and thats it. It might have a little kids face above a lock key, inbetween the wash and rinse buttons, hold these for 3/5 seconds and it should work

LG Washer & Dryer 7 (WD12331AD)
Its is a direct drive front loader with 7kg capacity for washing and 3.5kg capacity for drying.

when new

the older it gets the less weight it can wash and dry

worn motor or drum overload if it doesnt want to spin at all

leak at the door . replace the door seal ..is a most common fix

My machine is showing cl on the screen


CL is child lock. See your users manual for unlocking the child lock procedure. Usually it involves pressing 1 or 2 buttons for 3 to 5 seconds. Many machines actually have a lock button you press for 3 - 5 seonds. Others use the stop pause button.

I have an LG 7.5kg WD 10165FU front loader and it has stopped spinning. what can i do?


Hello there, Ok, first check under the lid, there is a peg that goes into the top edge of the washer. That is a switch. The idea between this is that it is a safety feature for mostly kids, so that when the washer is on that high speed spin cycle, that a child does not open up lid and stick there arm or hand in and have it injured. Most washer are designed so that the washer will only spin when the washing machine lid is down. So, of course you have it down, but sometimes the lid might have got a little bent or warped. So first try with lid down pushing down on lid while on spin cycle. If still wont spin, most likely it is that switch that that peg goes into, if you take a knife or flat head screw driver, with lid up on spin cycle and push into that hole with the knife or flat head screw driver and do not here a click when pushing it and releasing it, then you need to replace that switch, it is pretty cheep, normally under 20 bucks and a appliance store and when picking up the part they can tell you exactly how to replace it yourself, it is pretty easy and only takes a few minutes. Hope this helps. Mike Please select a 4 thumb up, if this helped you, and atestimony if you like. Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live. For a price, expert works with you while you work on your washer or anydo-it-yourself project. Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Error display "CL" - what to do?


THe child lock is on. Mine came on for some random reason. On my LG front loader there is a button on the right hand side with a cartoony picture of a child and a padlock. Press this.
