Hi


Error CL appears when the dishwasher control detects door switch is open or door is open. You'll have to open the door and check the continuity of the door switch. If the door seems to be closed then it is the control has detected an issue with the door latch. Check the door latch & seals to make sure door is closing fine. Unplug the dishwasher from power outlet and wait for 10-15 minutes. Restart the dishwasher and check if the error is still there. If error still appears then you'll need to repalce the door switch/door latch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

Based off what you have described you have performed multiple tests to your Frigidaire dishwasher and it continues to display a "CL". That code does stand for close door which can mean that the door switch is sensing it is opened. For this error code it could be a possible problem with your door switch or main control. I understand you stated that the control did not appear to have a burn inside of it so it is easy to assume that the door latch could be the issue. Remember if you are not a professional technician this could be the start of unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Why won't my dishwasher start?


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Based off the information you have provided "CL" stands for close door. If you continue to experience an issue with the "CL" error code I would recommend having a professional come out to your home and diagnose your appliance. "CL" could be a problem within your door switch or main control board. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Bosch Logixx won't start - Stuck on "Close the door" even though door is closed.


Open the door, look along the top stainless on the door and you should find the ENr number (model number) etched into the stainless, may need to give it a wipe and look at an angle to read it. Post the ENr and that should help with diagnosis.

Flashes "CL" to close door when it is closed and won't start


The door switch has failed. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the process will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model.

Frigidaire pld3460rdc1 the dishwasher flashed CL when the door is closed.


The CL is letting you know that the door was closed. If it continues to show CL it means you need to close and latch before the cycle will run. If it just flashes your okay.

Lights on the Asko D1996 keep blinking


This depends on the blinking pattern. Of the eight lights on the panel, if the four on the left blink on and then the right four lights blink on as the left ones go off, and keep blinking back and forth, that just means the mode has been set and the Start button pressed. After closing the door it should just continue on wherever it is in the cycle. (This is normal operation).
If you hold down the Start button, this resets the dishwasher. If you then close the door, nothing will happen because it thinks it's done.
If the lights are blinking in a different pattern, such as they all blink on and off in unison, that indicates an error condition and needs to be diagnosed. If the pump is not running constantly, then at least it's not because water is leaking out somewhere.

Frigidaire Dishw. Error code CL


this just happened to ours and it turned out to be the gasket that seals the door.

when you see the CL error and the door is indeed shut, pull gently back on the door. if you hear a click and the unit starts running again, it may be the gasket.

ours lost it's ability to keep the seal, allowing enough 'play' in the locking mechanism for it to think the door was not closed.

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDS02SRSS2 start light blinking won't start


I have this same kitchenaid model. It would not start after selecting the wash cycle and pressing start. The light would blink as if the door was open. I did the reset by pushing the sani-rinse, heat dry, sani-rinse, heat-dry and closing the door. You can hear something going on inside. After that stopped (about 3 minutes). I was able to select the wash cycle, press the start, close the door, and it started. Good luck!
