Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

CL is not an error code. It is indicating that the CL or CHILD LOCK feature has been turned ON and is active. TO TURN OFF CL CODE ON NEWER LG FRONT LOAD WASHERS: press and hold the CHILD LOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds.

If that does not work or you can't find a child lock button give me the full model number of the washer and I can give you model specific instructions, thanks.
