Several LG dishwasher users have stuck with the CL error code and don’t understand how to fix it. So, let’s find out what CL means on an LG dishwasher.

If your dishwasher displays a CL error code, the child control lock function has been triggered. Most LG devices have this setting to prevent kids from opening the appliance while running.

If you accidentally activated the child lock option and wish to switch it off, follow this guide to learn how to repair the dishwasher properly.

CL appears on the display, and the cycle and option selection keys are disabled

How to Disable Child Lock on an LG Dishwasher

If you want to switch off the CL code on the LG dishwasher by yourself, follow the instructions step-by-step to make it correctly:

  1. Find the child lock button. Depending on the model, the LG dishwasher may flash CL or have a padlock icon on board.
  2. Click and hold the kid lock button on the screen until the code disappears from the display (3 to 5 seconds).
  3. Switch on your LG dishwasher’s cycle to ensure it does not blink the CL message.

If your appliance doesn’t operate or the CL code mode doesn’t erase, you must call a plumber or technician assistant to analyze the issue with the dishwasher.

What to Do If the CL Code Persists

As you can see, it is possible to reset your LG dishwasher. If it still doesn’t work, turn off the device for 1 minute and then switch back on.

Make sure that the appliance is under warranty. To break down, you can call the manufacturer to help you fix certain elements, replace the device, or indicate a possible problem.

Additionally, keeping the user manual handy can be a lifesaver. It often contains troubleshooting tips for common issues, including error codes like CL. If you’ve misplaced the manual, many manufacturers, including LG, offer digital versions on their websites. This can be a quick and easy way to find the specific information you need to address the CL error code and other potential problems. As one LG dishwasher owner, Aaron Sorkin shared:

Understanding the CL code and knowing how to deactivate it saved me a lot of stress. The user manual and online resources were incredibly helpful.

Common Questions

The CL error code on your LG dishwasher indicates that the child lock feature has been activated. It prevents the dishwasher from being opened while a cycle is running, ensuring safety, especially in households with children.
To deactivate the CL code, locate the child lock button on your dishwasher (often marked with a padlock symbol or displaying CL). Press and hold this button for about 3 to 5 seconds until the CL code disappears from the display. This action should unlock the dishwasher and allow you to resume normal operation.
If the CL code continues to display or if your dishwasher doesn’t operate normally after resetting, it may indicate a more complex issue. Consider checking the user manual for further troubleshooting steps or contact a professional technician for assistance and repairs.
