Eventually discovered that if the 'start' button is held down for a few seconds it unlocks the 'child lock'.

This is probably a lid cover open protection. Check to see if there is a magnet on the cover, positioned almost to centre (slightly to the right) at edge of the cover. There is some sort of plastic catch to house the magnet. If it is not there, place a magnet at the corresponding area on the washer where the plastic catch will touch when the lid cover close.

I cannot find that model number in any of my LG data.

There is a button on the control panel that will say Child Lock. That button will have to pushed and held down until you hear the chime.

On some models if you hold in the spin and temp buttons together at the same time and while holding in, you depress the power button then the machine will go into test mode. Each subsequent push of the start button will go to the next test item, ie, spin, water fill, drain, etc. Might give it a try. Good luck.

How to turn off child lock on WTG7532W lg washing machine

Try pressing and holding the Rinse button (between the Wash and Spin buttons) for 3+ seconds. This should toggle the Child Lock off and the Start button should work to resume the cycle. (If you have touched the Power button, you may need to turn on the washer first. The Child Lock feature remains in the last used state.) See page 27 of the Owner's Manual for information on the feature. The manual is available from the manufacturer's support page: . The current link to the manual is .

If you can't get the Rinse button to respond, you may have a problem with the touch pad circuit board, the wiring between the touch pad and the control board or the main control board.

I hope this helps.

LG Tromm washer, what does error code ''CL'' mean?

Hello there and welcome to fixya
THE cl is not a error code at all
not to dismiss the feature simply press and hold the wash and rinse buttons for a minimum of 5 seconds and release Your machine may be different so you may have to press a different series of buttons like if theree are 2 buttons with the unlock or lock picture on them or shows a child or something like this but it should be 2 buttons that are neded to unlock ok
Hope this is very helpful
Best regards Mike

LG WD-10160 TP. Display is showing code CL and no buttons work. I think it may be child lock but can't turn it off. The problem occurred when I turned off the machine & disconnected the water...

You are quite right, the Child Lock is engaged.

3 options for you depending on the machine:

Find the two buttons Temp and Options in the panel. Turn ON the machine, press these two buttons together for 3 seconds and that should reset it.


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


If it has a program selector twist dial, set the selector to off or the end of a program (If it doesn't have, don't worry) Then, unplug from the mains. Leave for 20 minutes without tampering.

Power back on and the machine should have reset

Hi, the machine seems to have hung. there is a CL symbol in the timer slot and no button is functioning including the power button. i had to switch the machine off from the mains.

i am fairly sure that CL in the timer window means that the child lock has been turned on.
this locks all buttons to ensure that children cannot accidentally start the machine or change settings.
to turn it on or off, press and hold the prewash button for three seconds.

hope this works.
if not, please feel free to ask for more details

Machine displyas CL. Why

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.

hi Hills659.
this is all i could find out.
What does CL mean on LG washing machine?
LG Washer CL Code Definition (What does it mean?) = The CL Code on front loading LG washing machines simply means the CHILD LOCK feature is turned ON.
The CHILD LOCK feature on your LG washer is meant as a safety precaution so children are not able to change wash settings. CL is not an error code. It is indicating that the CL or CHILD LOCK feature has been turned ON and is active.
