"@stevetheman LG Washer Error Code CL Fix. CL means that your washing machine's CHILD LOCK is ON. Since You did not give us a model number we have to give you the generic answer:

TO TURN OFF CL CODE ON NEWER LG FRONT LOAD WASHERS:

To TURN OFF CHILD LOCK on your LG washer, press and hold the CHILD LOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds.

The washer should now have CHILD LOCK mode DISABLED and all buttons will function properly.

NOTE: ON other newer LG front load washing machines hold the PREWASH/CHILD LOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn CHILD LOCK OFF.

This method is for LG washers with inverter, direct drive, smart drum, and others.

TO TURN ON CHILD LOCK ON NEWER LG FRONT LOAD WASHERS:

To TURN ON CHILD LOCK on your LG washer, press and hold the CHILD LOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds.

The washer should now have CHILD LOCK mode ACTIVATED and all buttons will not function except the POWER button.

NOTE: ON other newer LG front load washing machines hold the PREWASH/CHILD LOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn CHILD LOCK ON. from here"

The op mentioned that this is a top loader and not a front load washer. The error code stands for Control Lock and to deactivate it press the control lock button for three seconds. It is located on the far right hand side. The bottom of four selections.

"Hi @Jennifer Waldron

To activate/deactivate the CL (Control Lock) function in an LG WKEX200HBA, turn on the power and then press and hold the SOIL button for 3 seconds.

A chime will sound when the control lock has been deactivated."

"For front-loading washer dryer combo “Inverter Direct Drive True Balance” LG model #WM3499H*A:

Once LG is powered ON, go to the right touch-screen panel, press and hold “Pre-wash + Delay wash” buttons simultaneously for 3-5 seconds. This will turn OFF the CL (control lock/child lock). You’ll hear a little jingle when the function is processed. Similarly, pressing this combo again for 3-5seconds will turn back ON the CL .

Hope this helps!"

"Hi @Jamie Finlay,

I cannot find any information online about a Swan SW158230b.

The nearest model number that I could find was for a Swan SW15840b and even then there is no online or downloadable user manual for it, which may have helped. (The Swan website shows no listing for your model)

The best that I can suggest is that you contact Swan and ask them for the information or for the user manual which should have the information how to enable/disable the Child Lock (aka Control Lock)"
