Question about Washing Machines
CA or Cl error codes
Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit
If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit (plain english the motor is drawing to much current due to a worn motor or shorted motor control board) has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for instantaneous current limit trip.
Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings. Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings. This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.
