Question about Washing Machines
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.
