It means the Child Lock feature which locks the controls is turned on. Look for the two console buttons, usually adjacent, with the lock and child symbols between them like the one shown below. Press and hold those buttons simultaneously until the CL light turns off to unlock the controls.

Trying to make a load, CL comes up wont let me wash cothes, help


CL usually means that the child lock (or front panel lock) has been enabled. This is useful when you clean the exterior of the washer without starting the machine.

Without the manufacturer and model, I can't identify the exact button or pair of buttons to toggle the CL on or off. However this will be indicated on the washer in a very small font. There are two patterns for the child lock feature. In one case, there will be a button with a small padlock symbol on it. This will be below the button or on a second line on the button. Press and hold this button for 3+ seconds or until you hear a tone or see the CL removed from the LCD panel. On other washers, there will be a line between 2 buttons with either the small padlock or a picture of a child's face in the middle of the line. Press and hold the two buttons together for 3+ seconds or until you hear a tone or see the CL message disappear.

I hope this helps. For an exact solution, please add the make and model of your washer. Then I may be able to give the exact button or buttons needed to toggle off this lock.

Code for CL


On many washers, CL is child lock. This feature locks the most of the front panel buttons; it's useful when you clean the control panel. It also keeps small children from starting the washer with a pet (or sibling) in the unit.

Look on the control panel for a small lock icon or the words Child Lock. This will be in a much smaller font than most of the icons/text on the washer. You need to press and hold the appropriate button or pair of buttons to disable the lock. If a pair of buttons are used, the lock icon will be in the middle of a line between the buttons.

Please add a comment with the specific make/model of your washer if you would like more information about cancelling the lock. On my washer, the CL will remain on even if you unplug the washer for several minutes.

Lg wm2140cw washer error code cl My lg washer show cl and I couldn't use my washer


CL means that your washing machine’s CHILD LOCK is ON. You can find two buttons Temp and Options in the panel.

Turn ON the machine, press these two buttons together for 3 seconds and that’s it.

It might have a little kids face above a lock key, in between the wash and rinse buttons, hold these for 3/5 seconds and it should work.

Waht does code CL mean when trying to fill washer


Cl Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limitIf a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit 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.

Error code CL


The CL fault indicates that there was an instantaneous current spike of 26 amps at the motor windings in the washer. This could be caused by overloading the washer. It can also be caused by problems with the drive motor, thermal protector or the motor controller.

You should have been able to clear the display by pressing the STOP/CANCEL button.

If you try running the washer again and continue to get this fault code even with a small or medium load, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the washer.
