Hi and welcome to FixYa,

You posted under a Whirlpool GS460 Gas Kitchen Range with an F5 - E1 error. This error code indicates " Self clean latch will not lock" which is actually the reverse of your stated concern "After self cleaning the oven door never unlock".

  • State: A conflicting condition, the mechanical is actually latched hence the door could not be opened, however, the sensor is telling the system that the latch will not lock;
  • Diagnosis: faulty sensor.
  • Recommended action: check sensor, continuity test (VOM or DVM), replace if deemed defective. To gain access, it will benecessary that the panels be removed.
An exploded parts diagram is available here to help you visualize parts location. Additionally, Whirpool error codes with solutions are posted here. Pls click on "Whirlpool Range / Stove / Oven Fault Codes".

In some instances, just letting it sit to "dry out" clears the problem. It may also speed things up with a spray of compressed air on the inside.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Unplug the power cord, let the oven cool down and see if the error disappear, if it doesnt , that means that the temperature proble had blown because of high temperature during self cleaning.

While self cleaning, we experienced a power surge. now the doors will not open and we can not get it to reset. F9-2 is the error message.


Hi happytrailri,

The F9-2 error code is a Latch, Unlock Upper. Check for obstruction in door lock mechanism.

Hope it helps.

I did the self clean on my oven, and now the oven door will not unlock (E1-F5-) pops up onto the oven screen.


Hi

Error E1 F5 means that the control has detected a problem with door latch switch. Switch off the power and unplug it from the mains. Check after 5-6 minutes whether the error has disappeared. If the error is still there then once again start the self clean cycle. Press the self-clean button to start the cycle. The panel becomes blank (---), then press the up arrow (^). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning. After self cleaning is done wait for 15-20 minutes and open the door. Try moving the latch manually to unlock it. hope this helps...

Did the self clean and now the oven door will not unlock


Hi
Door is not unlocking as the control has detected a problem with door latch switch or the cycle was interupted in between. Switch off the power and unplug it from the mains. Check after 5-6 minutes whether you are able to unlock the door. If the error is still there then once again start the self clean cycle. Press the self-clean button to start the cycle. The panel becomes blank (---), then press the up arrow (^). The panel will appear 3:00 (indication for the duration of self-cleaning). The oven will lock on its own and start the self-cleaning. After self cleaning is done wait for 15-20 minutes and open the door. Try moving the latch manually to unlock it. Please post back for any further assistance...

I justt recieve ur answer


It is not the temperature probe.

I have sent you a message afterward, I guess you did not receive it, that is because of a system problem.

I repeat here my additional message:

Sorry about my first diagnoisys, I looked into the service manual, E1 - F5 fault code means that you have aproblem with the door switch or latch assembly.

Oven door


Door lock motor has probably failed.....On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Push or pull the rod to unlock the door

Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method next time.
