The SE light flashes when turning on the washing machine

Not sure which washing machine you have. But assuming it is an LG SE is a serious fault.
Motor fault detected Can also be caused by be main PCB
This is not a good fault code to see as it will generally be correct and either the washing machine drive motor or the main electronic control PCB is faulty.
  • Check motor
  • Check motor tacho
  • Check all connections and blocks to the motor
  • Check connections on the main control module
  • Check main control module
For more detailed analysis please post make and model of your washing machine in the comments field.

The washing machine is very noisey when on the spin cycle. It makes a clunking noise. It is a new problem and the washing machine is a couple of years old, so it is not something simple like the pins left...

Please shut off the unit, remove the power and then using a good inspection lamp look into the back side/ underside of the washer.
manually turn to see if there is noise, this can come from faulty belts, motor, bearings on motor or the main agitator shaft assembly or even if the drum is out of sync due to poor suspension and support. If so remove and overhaul the unit. a bit of oil or grease can solve in many cases.
Also look for any foreign objects on the drum.

Wash & spin is blinking and machine is not working

Possible that the controller is not giving out the voltage to the motor or if so the motor is faulty.
You will need to look from the bottom to the motor for voltage , if there is voltage on motor then check the main capacitor for weakeness. connect one in parallel. If there is no voltage to the motor then the controller board is faulty.

Possibly the Main Capacitor is leaked/ burned.Try replacing it with new ones.

To locate it, you can follow the schematics diagram behind the machine.
It's look's like a mini can with cable, sometimes the color is white, and on the body written 25uF/400 VAC, or something like that.

Hope this work, if still won't, contact me for furthure assistant.

hi Hills659.
this is all i could find out.
What does CL mean on LG washing machine?
LG Washer CL Code Definition (What does it mean?) = The CL Code on front loading LG washing machines simply means the CHILD LOCK feature is turned ON.
The CHILD LOCK feature on your LG washer is meant as a safety precaution so children are not able to change wash settings. CL is not an error code. It is indicating that the CL or CHILD LOCK feature has been turned ON and is active.
