LG WASHING MACHINE SHOWS ERROR CODE CL

You have loaded the laundry into the machine, selected the program, and pressed the Start button. But instead of the usual bubbling of water, you hear silence, and on the display of the LG washing machine the error code CL lights up.

Error description
On the display of the LG washing machine, the CL code means that the function of the child lock is activated (Child Lock). This mode is designed to lock all buttons except the POWER key from accidental pressing and changing the washing program by children. You may have forgotten that you activated this function in the last wash. It is possible that the child lock was activated by other household members. Or the function was activated by accident.

In any case, do not worry, the CL code is not an error. It is an information message.

How to clear CL error in LG washing machine
To do this, press and hold simultaneously for 3-4 seconds the two buttons marked with the icon “pacifier” or baby face with a lock. Depending on the model of your machine, these may be the buttons

Super Rinse and Prewash

and others.

For LG models with touch controls, you must hold down one of the basic function keys for 3-4 seconds, under which there is an asterisk labeled “Child Lock” to release the lock. For example, it may be the “No Fold” or “Delayed Washing” buttons.

Who is comfortable with the child lock mode
Those who have a small child, who wants to touch and “poke” everything. It is turned on the same way as turned off – by simultaneously pressing the two buttons, designated by the icon “pacifier” for a few seconds. Child lock mode can be enabled only during the washing process (after its activation, the LG machine writes CL on the screen). At the end of it, the function remains active, so the next time you wash, you must first deactivate the button lock.
