Nice to meet you, *****!
CL is not an error code, but an indicator that the child lock feature is active. When the child lock feature is active, the control panel is disabled, and settings cannot be adjusted. To activate or de-activate child lock, press and hold the child lock button for 3 seconds.

Can you see an illustration like that one on your panel?

It has to contain two buttons which you have to press simultaneously for 3 secs.

In case with your model:
Press and hold the Delay Wash and Add Item buttons at the same time for 3 seconds to activate/deactivate this function.
Customer Reply
we have start/power button and Pause button are you refering to those?
Henry Miller

No, Please turn the power on and on your sensor panel find Delay Wash and Add Item and press them simultaneously.
That is your model, isn't it?

Sorry didn't got the issue. It's shaking hard while washing?
Customer Reply
yes when it is spinning it is making a loud noise and shaking hard enough to walk it out from the wall
I am running it on downloaded to test it out

Check its' legs, the washer is not stably standing. That's why it's shaking so hard.
Try to put something under one of the legs so it stands straight and there won't be that problem.
Customer Reply
so we adjust the legs when it's in place? they are going under a counter so not so easy to get to....
Henry Miller

Yes they have to hold the machine straight so it's not staggering.
Customer Reply
We have leveled the Machine with a level but it is still shaking ...how sensitive is it? My house is vintage so finding a level floor would be challenging
Henry Miller
Henry Miller Tech Expert & Writer
Not leveled floor is the reason so that's why you have to balance the washer using something external.
Customer Reply
rather than use the feet adjustments?

I can't see the full picture so you have to choose what is the best in your situation. But it's not broken or something, just needs to be stabled so don't worry.
Customer Reply
how do I reset the delay wash to zero?
Henry Miller
Henry Miller Tech Expert & Writer
You want to cancel it?
Customer Reply
yes
yes cancel
Will it hurt the washer if we run it when it's not stable? or it will just be noisey?
My housekeeper is here and she usually does the wash
First I need to cancel the Delay Wash button
Henry Miller
Henry Miller Tech Expert & Writer
It can hurt it actually with over vibrating, so it's recommended to stable it first.
Customer Reply
How do I cancel the delay wash timer?
Henry Miller
Henry Miller Tech Expert & Writer
You can cancel the time delay by simply turning the program selection dial to another program and then back again.

thanks
