Frigidaire Dishwasher CL error light

Frigidaire Dishwasher, model #FDB2310lcc2. Error light CL flashing. I know it means close the door; the problem is that I've closed and reclosed the door, gently and firmly, and it will not stop. This has happened before, and wiggling the machine around a bit in its space has helped before. Not this time, though. Any ideas? Thanks.

Sound as if your having an issue with the latch not closing properly( switches not making contact inside) yo can take apart, requires dropping the front panels and checking the switches, or replace the entire switch costs about 60 bucks part number 154529403 (black handle)

Try replaying the tub gasket first. It's a $12 part. It is worn or breaking down, the door will not seal completely, causing the CL code to appear.

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

Hi Joseph - I understand your dishwasher is displaying a "CL" error code. A "CL" code typically refers to the main door switch. The first easy troubleshooting tip is to flip the circuit breaker to the dishwasher for about 20 minutes and see if that resets it and clears the error. If the circuit breaker trick doesn't work, it could potentially mean that the door is not closed completely. However, it could also mean that the control board is not sensing that the door is properly closed. I would recommend checking the door switches. Look to see if you notice if anything is bent or misshapen. Also, you might try the manufacturer site to see if you can download an owner's manual for future reference. They typically have a large number of owner's manuals for consumer use. If you have tried these troubleshooting tips and still come up with a "CL" code, you might need to reach out to a local service tech who can better pinpoint the problem for you. Best of luck!

Frigidaire dishwasher model FDB2320REC0 when I push the normal wash CL flashes


Hello linda_ross88 - Typically CL indicates that the main control board is not sensing that the door is properly closing. One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to the appliance by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about 30 seconds. If the error code persists, typically an expert would need to check the door switches, wiring, and test the main control board. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend seeking a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

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.

Frigidaire pld3460rdc1 the dishwasher flashed CL when the door is closed.


The CL is letting you know that the door was closed. If it continues to show CL it means you need to close and latch before the cycle will run. If it just flashes your okay.

Electorlux dishwasher flashing CL


Error CL means that the child lock had been activated.
To unlock the machine you should put your finger up inside the handle and locate a slider switch, then push the switch to to the left side.

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.
