Question about Whirlpool GR465LXLS Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Door will not unlock after self clean.

I have Whirlpool Accubake range, ran self clean and after, it indicated that it was cool. However the door remains locked and every 30 seconds an error code, F5 E1 flashes and beeps until you press the OFF/CANCEL button and then it does it again in 30 seconds.

    I tried these tips but I still have the locked door.
    When I opened up my range it looked as if something at the bottom had burned out. I will call a pro to come out and fix it. I really appreciated this help as I did as much as I felt could do before asking for a pro. Thanks, I really appreciate this site and your helpful comments.

It's probably the timer motor which is stuck. unplug the range!! I recently had the same problem with my whirlpool (hereinafter known as **** inc.) range. Self cleaned the oven and then the door wouldn't open. Googled up similar problems and generally found out that ****inc. had this problem on both gas and electric ranges and it costs an arm and a leg for a new board plus labor. Found out how to manually open door with coat hanger but of course still had problem with same error messages; also the oven, clock, etc wouldn't function. Took the cover off the back of the stove. UNPLUG THE STOVE On the left rear facing the back of the range he found the timer motor had stopped.He unplugged input(230 volt power) leading to the stove, then unplugged and insulated the wiring to the timer motor and the microswitch on top of it ( 4 wires). Then he took the long steel wire off of it and unlatched the oven door. Told me that this probably had something to do with the timer motor on the self cleaning cycle and that it was stuck Said this whole thing could probably be fixed with a bit of WD40. Said probably nothing wrong with board but it sure must be a moneymaker for **** inc. The service techs probably clean the timer motor, say they changed the $300 board, and go on their way. Plugged stove back up and voila! Everything worked except self cleaning function. Hope this helps someone. caution!!!! Do NOT use the self cleaning function unless you fix the timer motor. Replace it or clean it.

Door will not unlock after cleaning


It usually takes at least an hour or more for the oven to cool down to a "safe" temperature and then it should unlock for you. If by morning it still is not unlocked, cutting the power (circuit breaker may be easiest) for 3 minutes should reset the electronics.
