Re: tried to selfclean my NEW oven but get error message...
Reading all the questions and responses - I had the same problem (would press "self clean", it would run for less then a minute then give the error message), so once I saw the code was E5F1 and what it meant (thanks for whoever posted that), I just pressed on the door for the first minute of the cycle, and self-cleaning then worked. Go figure :)

The error F5E1 indicates the over door latch is not operating. ... If the door latches and the code displays then it is most likely the control but if it does not latch at all then the latch mechanism is most likely bad. ... What does the error code E2 F3 mean on a Whirlpool Gold range?
The F5E1 message means that the door lock mechanism isn't working. This could be a fault at the lock, the mechanism or the wiring.
First press and hold Cancel to clear the error temporarily. Another code should appear. Press Cancel again to clear the second error. (Some models require unplugging the power cord to reset the code.)
To unlock the door, take a metal wire hanger and bend it. Slide it into the door opening and try to get the lock to move. (The lock is in the middle of the opening.) Then try to open the door. Otherwise, see below to see if you can unlock the door from the back of the unit.
You can check some of the parts by taking off the back panel and attempting to move the lock. Similarly check the motor and the cam that controls the lock. It should take a bit of force to move but not a lot.
The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cooktop. This rod connects to the actual latch mounted behind the oven door. The control board will then monitor a position switch that is actuated by the latch motor cam. As the motor rotates, the latch will engage the door locking it in place just as the cam contacts the switch button. When the switch contacts close, the control turns the latch motor off and starts the cleaning cycle.

Sorry to hear the "self clean" Gremlins are at it again. Several things have happened, none good. During the cycle at full power for several hours, a circuit on the control board has failed. Various errors are now keeping functions from occurring normally, although sometimes door switches fail causing similar anomalies. At any rate 'self clean' eventually becomes 'self-destruct'. Boards run 150-300$ . Hope info helps- Thanks-ED
The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...
Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused. You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.
If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display. This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.
Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.
