Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges
I set the clean time for 3 hours, and it worked fine until the end.
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.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: My oven won't heat
First you will need to verify if the igniter is coming on for the oven burner when the oven is turned on. You will need to remove the oven bottom cover. There is usually two screws at the back bottom of the oven compartment that holds the bottom on. If there are no screws then it should just lift out. You may need to slide the bottom away from you then lift from the back. You will need to remove the oven racks to make enough room to lif the bottom out. Once removed you should be able to see the burner(you may also need to remove a heat spreader on the burner). Now turn on the oven and watch for the hot surface igniter to start to glow. If it does then you will need to make sure the gas orfice and venturri for the burner are not plugged with debris. You can use a small can of compressed air to try and dislodge any debris. Then give the oven gas valve a light tap with a screwdriver or a wrench. Oven gas valve is usually located at the bottom of the oven. Remove the bottom storage compartment to reach it. If you tap it and the burner comes on there may have just been debris in the valve and you may have cleared it. Then turn the oven off and back on completely several times. If the burner comes back on you should be ok if it does not then it could be a weak hot surface igniter or a bad olven gas control valve. Now going back to the start if the igniter does not come on you will need to verify if the igniter is getting voltage. If it is then test the igniter with a ohm meter. The reading should usually be between 500 to 700 ohms. A common problem with hot surface igniters is that they will crack. Examine the igniter for any visible cracks. If the igniter is not getting voltage then you will need to verify that all wires are properly connected and none have come loose. Look for any melted wires from the self cleaning process. You may need to dis-assemble the back of the range to see if any wires have come loose or melted. Now I need to stress to you that safety is important. Be very careful performing these procedures. You can get shocked or possible burned.

That's fairly typical but I would suggest removing the shelves and cleaning those with oven cleaner if they need it at all.
Expect the door to remain locked for additional hours for safety.
The temperature rises to > 900 degrees F and is necessary to start the catalytic process that consumes the crud.
Sorry I didn't see your message earlier-
