    The ribbon trick didn't help. I took the latch assembly off trying to figure out how to bypass it. When I reinstalled it the machine worked for a couple of days but now has the same original problem.

Take the screws out from around the top and take the control panel off to access the door latch assembly but first take the mylar ribbon off from the control panel and clean it with a pencil eraser gently and replace the ribbon see if that clears it and let me know now leave the two lower screws in the door panel so it wont come off

My dishwasher FDB2510LCC1 get a cl code while washing and stays running on the wash stage until it is shut off


Hello Randy, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is displaying an error code of "CL" this means close door. The dishwasher may not be sensing that the door switch is closed. The "CL" means that you could have a possible issue with the main control board or door latch. I would recommend checking to make sure the latch does not have any visible damage. This could also be a miscommunication within your dishwasher and a reset may help clear it out. In order to reset the dishwasher you would flip the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. We hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

Based off what you have described you have performed multiple tests to your Frigidaire dishwasher and it continues to display a "CL". That code does stand for close door which can mean that the door switch is sensing it is opened. For this error code it could be a possible problem with your door switch or main control. I understand you stated that the control did not appear to have a burn inside of it so it is easy to assume that the door latch could be the issue. Remember if you are not a professional technician this could be the start of unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Why won't my dishwasher start?


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Based off the information you have provided "CL" stands for close door. If you continue to experience an issue with the "CL" error code I would recommend having a professional come out to your home and diagnose your appliance. "CL" could be a problem within your door switch or main control board. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Why does display flashes "cl"?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the display is flashing "cl" on your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# GLD2450RD. The "cl" code you are seeing is stating to close your dishwasher door. The status indicator lights will also flash to indicate current cycle status. If the door is closed, try pushing it in just to make sure. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Our dishwasher is blinking CL - i think this means 'Close'... Even when the door is properly closed, it blinks CL and won't start!! Help!


Hi


Error CL appears when the dishwasher control detects door switch is open or door is open. You'll have to open the door and check the continuity of the door switch. If the door seems to be closed then it is the control has detected an issue with the door latch. Check the door latch & seals to make sure door is closing fine. Unplug the dishwasher from power outlet and wait for 10-15 minutes. Restart the dishwasher and check if the error is still there. If error still appears then you'll need to repalce the door switch/door latch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Flashes "CL" to close door when it is closed and won't start


The door switch has failed. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model.

CL Error Dacor Dishwashwer


I had this problem and it was driving me crazy! I finally figured out what it was, in my case. I thought that the door switch would be the problem, so I took the door cover off and jumpered out the switch. No luck. While I had it apart, I noticed that each time I bumped the main control board, I heard a short, and heard a relay close. I found that the main control board wasn't snapped all the way into its mount on the left side. Apparently, there is a contact on the back side of the board that only makes when the board is fully seated. Snapping the board firmly into place has fixed my problem.
