Question about Whirlpool RF378 Electric Kitchen Range
I have a whirlpool gas range SF387LEGW7, my wife accidentally hit the clean button so she hit cancel. The stove made a few clicking noises by the oven door. She broiled some food then the next day the oven door was locked and will not open. Holding the cancel button gives a error message of E1 F5 I tried to run the clean cycle but nothing happens. On the bake cycle the oven will heat up but the door will not open
The Coat hanger is a great idea and it works. My oven was doing the same thing and I a female fixed it with the coat hanger. Thank you Thank you

The coat hanger did not work for my E1-F5 door lock problem. But, I did open the back panel of the oven and found the long rod that goes to the front of the oven and forms the locking mechanism. The rod was attached to a small plastic cam that was easily rotated by hand into the unlock position. The oven works normally again though I expect to have the same door lock problem on subsequent auto-clean cycles. But, i'll deal with that when it comes.

CC, first try unplugging the unit for 60 seconds and see if the latch motor will reset itself. E1-F5, latch motor did not unlock. You can get at the latch motor from the rear. It will have a rod that goes to the latch hook in front. Sounds like the motor just did not home after cancelling the clean cycle. If your handy with a meter the latch motor should ohm out at approx 175 ohms. Check the harness to the motor to make sure it's on good. It's possible that the cam assy. on the motor jammed. You may be able to use a coat hanger with a hook on the end and slide it between the door seal and frame, pull to the left and release the door....try this first...Catriver..post back.
