The F5 error code?

Whirlpool Super Capacity 465. The self-cleaning oven has worked fine up until last week. There oven was here when I moved in, so I don't have a troubleshooting book. Anyway, when I place the self-cleaning oven on, it will heat up for about 30 minutes and then the F5 error comes on. The oven will not open, unless I unplug the oven. Does anyone know what the F5 error message means? Or, better yet, how to fix this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. My oven is dirty. :) Sharyl

    My husband started the self cleaning oven cycle and when he thought it was finished - the oven door remained locked. The F5 error code came up but there is no book. I do not know a model number.. I just want the thing to stop beeping and work. Thanks, Fritz in 29 Palms

    F5 error started while self-cleaning. Door won't open - light on. Probably Whirlpool RS696PXG. Unplugged for hours - did not fix. How do get inside to check things? Thanks. Richard

    According to the Whirlpool oven manual and tech sheet, an F5 E1 is a door lock related error code. Below are the three causes of F5 door lock related errors. Two of them can be expected by looking at the wiring diagram. The third one is totally unexpected and not mentioned in the Tech Sheet error description section (or anyware else that we’re aware of).


    The Symptom and Documented Solution: An F5-E1 error is thrown on the lower oven.

    The Tech Sheet says:

    F5 E1 “Self-clean latch will not lock”

    1. Check the latch assembly: latch arm pivot joint, arm/solenoid connection, solenoid spring, and spring washer.
    2. Check the Latch Solenoid:
    – Check for firm electrical connections.
    – Disconnect the two wires from the solenoid and measure the resistance of
    the solenoid. A small resistance (approx. 175?) is normal. If the solenoid is
    open (??) or shorted (0?), it should be replaced.
    3. Check the Latch Switch. Disconnect it and use a continuity tester:
    – Door latched = switch closed, continuity should read 0?.
    – Door unlatched = switch open, continuity should read??.
    4. Check Door Open/Closed Switch. Disconnect it and use a continuity tester:
    – Door open = switch closed, continuity should read 0?.
    – Door closed = switch open, continuity should read??.
    5. Check power and element connections.

    The Actual F5 E1 Causes

    ONE– Problems with switches in the latch mechanism as mentioned in tech sheet.

    Fix: Repair or replace lock mechanism/switches.
    TWO– Door latch drive or door switch detect failed in control board.

    Fix: We take care of this with our board rebuild process. Call FixYourBoard.com to have your control board refurbished. 512-355-1108
    THREE– Here’s the kicker – this cause is not at all obvious! A FAULTY KEYPAD/TOUCHPAD MEMBRANE!

    How can it be?! Self-clean in the bottom oven of a Whirlpool Double oven is an option. The models that don’t have self-clean in the bottom oven still use the same control board as those that do have the option. A unique combination of shorts in the keypad membrane tell the control board which options are implemented in a particular oven.

    A frequent failure mechanism in the keypad causes the short that indicates “no bottom self-clean model” to fail open circuit – confusing the control board into thinking that there is a lock mechanism on the bottom oven! Now the control board tries to activate the non-existent bottom oven lock mechanism – and throws an error because it doesn’t work (or exist)!

    Fix: Replace the keypad. Call FixYourBoard.com for Ledgestone options.

Range throws an F5E1 code, cleaned the oven 2 weeks ago. Worked fine. Plugged it back in today to clean oven but it threw the code, door is not locked.this is in a rent house.


Using the 'self clean' function nearly always results in faults. We see it here all the time, burnt out elements, doors that won't open, fires and error codes. Google the manual for it. They are all online

The error is listed in this link. Also look at the video tab

Error codes E1 F2 whirlpool super capacity 465 oven


HI. This code is a good indication of a separated key pad ribbon or the actual key pad may be damaged. Use the procedure below to isolate the culprit.

1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control board).
2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad (also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate keypad in to control board as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also called ERC or clock).

The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

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.

Whirlpool Oven Model RF365PXGN getting a error of F1 and E2


HELLO, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FIND YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER BOX AND LOOK IN IT FOR THE BUTTON THAT SAYS KITCHEN. TURN THE KITCHEN POWER OFF FOR 30 MINUTES THEN TURN IT BACK ON. ONCE YOU TURN IT BACK ON THE OVEN SHOULD RESET ITS SELF. TRY THAT AND IT SHOULD HELP.
