L.G CL CODE/ERROR <br /><br />Good Day,<br /><br />Today I will explain to you how to remove the annoying CL code/error on all L.G Dishwashers & Washing Machines.<br /><br />Firstly let me explain let me state that this code is not in fact, an error code. It is actually there to tell you or warn you, that Child Lock has been activated. This feature was added because small children usually fiddle with controls on washing machines & dish washing machines. It is an easy way to lock in an operation and then be assured that it cannot be changed afterwards.<br /><br />The process usually involves you entering a method of washing (like pre-wash, extra dry, quick wash, economy wash etc), then activating child lock - and then have peace of mind that no wandering fingers will tamper with your settings...<br /><br />How to deactivate/activate Child Lock:<br /><br />Here are some examples of various L.G washer Front Panels:<br /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_23.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_24.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_25.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_26.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_27.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_28.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_29.JPG" /><br /><br /><br />All you need to do is press these two buttons connected via a small child face icon. On certain dishwashers you would need to do this while the door is open.<br /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_30.jpg" /><br /><br />That's it! All you need to do.<br /><br />I hope this Tip has helped you.<br /><br />Kind Regards<br />JEDEMEYER1<br /><br />* If this Tip helped you in any way, please rate it<br /><br />
To dectivate child lock press the key with the clock symbol for 5 seconds. The child lock will deactivate. If it still does not then you may have shifted the programme dial. Rotate the dial through each programme and try deactivating child lock in each programme setting. The child lock will deactivate only in the original setting that it was activated.
Follow this instruction.............
If you want to activate/deactivate the Child Lock function, press the Soil Level and Signalbuttons at the same time for 3 seconds.
How It Works:
1. "Child Lock" can be activated while your Washer is running.
2. Once you activate "Child Lock", all controls (except for the Power button) will be locked
until you deactivate "Child Lock".
3. The Child Lock button will be lit while it is in effect.
When buttons, other than the Power button, do not respond, please check if the "Child Lock" function is on.
Hope this helps u out!

If the model number is correct, you turn the Child Lock on/off by pressing and holding the "Energy Saver Dry" button for 4 seconds. If your model numbers differs, please post back with the correct information so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.
Your problem is: You have a Kitchen Aid Dishwasher that has a light on saying CONTROL LOCK,of which when on you can't do any wash cycles.You tried doing canel out,but no help.What can you do to get off so can use unit?? Is there a reset button underneath that will reset unit.you are very mechanical and can pull unit apart if needed....Thanks Scott
Should not be nessessary. The lock is for keeping playfull little hands from getting into trouble. You must have inadvertently activated it. Try pressing and holding the "heated dry" button. This should deactivate the lock after about six seconds. This same procedure will reactivate it should you feel the need.
