LG WM-1285FHD Error Code 'CL'

Hi,
My Washing Machine has come up with an error code CL - There is nothing about this code in the User error codes.
Also the machine was not on a cycle. It worked fine yesterday, come to use it today and it just says CL on the display and wont do anything. I have tried powering down for a few mins but comes back up with CL when plugged back in.
Any ideas ???? Thanks.

    An update, My Wife says that it did 2 loads this morning which worked fine. Machine then turned off. Later she leaned on it while talking to a friend and the error code CL came up on the display. It has been like that ever since !!!!!

    Same thing with mine. I just leaned on it and the code came up. FYI, I leaned on it to get to my dryer plug that had come out when I was unplugging my washer for a ue code. I called LG about the UE code and the customer servie rep helped me, but he was a total **** during the call.

The "CL" code is not an error! This means "Child Lock"!
To unlock a washing machine you will press and holding within 3-5 sec two button, marked "child lock".
And happy day will come! :))

    On the model I bought recently - LG TOP LOAD 5.0 CU. FT. WT1701CW, the CL symbol came up unexpectedly and the washer would not allow to do anything. To deactivate the CL, Child Lock, mode, a quick sheet that comes with the machine says to press and hold SOIL LEVEL button until the CL clears. This helped.

    I see there are many different LG models, I couldn't find the "child lock" button on mine at first and then finally noticed it was on the "pre-wash" botton. Held it for 5 seconds and now it's fine Thanks for the great tip! Found this info quickly online which is great because I can't find my LG manual

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

My child was pressing the delay wash button on my machine, I don't know how many times she did this before I scolded her. Then when I tried to do the lundry tonight, the machine went through the cycles but no water went into the machine.
Please Help!
Thank-you
Sherrie

This may mean that the child lock has come on. Your machine will have two buttons that you have to press together to undo it. Mine is Temp and Options (there's a diagram on the panel)

What is the error code CL mean for LG WM1285FHD


LG washing machines indicating error code CL may have the child lock activated.

Try holding down the temperature and eco/rapid options together to turn off child lock.

Some LG series use "TEMP and OPTION" at the same time.


Thanks
