The motor that controls the door lock was bad. Go online and order a new motor based on range model number. User can fix if reasonably handy with tools.

    I have a electric whirlpool self cleaning oven, after the cleaning process the door is still locked. It's beeping and error message E1 F5


    Assuming the door is still locked after cooling, then either the door switch is bad or the wiring from the control panel to the door switch has a problem. First disconnect the power from the oven. Then check the wiring and connectors (from the control to the switch and back). If those are fine, you need to replace the door switch. After replacing the switch or fixing any bad wiring/connections, reconnect the oven to power. Press and hold any key on the panel for at least one minute to clear the error. You should see F2 on the LCD panel. Press Cancel to clear the error then check to see if any new error (or the old one) message occurs. (Usually a new error message will come up within a minute.)

    Which model Whirlpool oven do you have? If you add a comment with the model number, I may be able to provide a parts list and diagram of the unit.

    I hope this helps.

    Why won't the oven door lock to start the self cleaning? The door appears to be shut all the way. After hit start, this code appears E1 F5


    According to the Whirlpool website, the self-cleaning latch may be interfering with the door, though this would be indicated by an "E0 F5" error code. If that's the case, Whirlpool recommends the following:
    1) Press "Stop/Clear" to clear your display.
    2) According to Whirlpool, there should be a door switch plunger in the upper right corner of the oven front. Press and hold this so that the door latch will unlock.
    However, if it is indeed "E1 F5" (or any other number with those letters in the code), Whirlpool recommends calling an appliance technician.

    Self cleaning F5 error


    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.

    Whilrpool Self Cleaning Range Door won't unlock


    try this 1. Verify error code by pressing and holding CANCEL/OFF key for 5 seconds.
    Momentarily (less than 5 sec.) press CANCEL key again to remove error code
    display.
    2. Press and hold any key for 1 minute until F2 E0 code is displayed.
    3. Cancel F2 E0 error code.
    4. Program and start the clean mode. Observe to see if door locks. If it does not,
    inspect the locking mechanism from the solenoid to the latch pawl and door to
    find the cause of the problem. If the door is not locking, then 1 minute from the
    start of clean, the F5 E1 code will again be displayed. Steps 1 through 3 will
    have to be repeated before another clean can be started.
    5. Once any mechanical problems with the latch mechanism have been corrected,
    program and start a clean cycle (after, if necessary, clearing F5 E1 error code)
    to ensure proper operation of the door lock. Immediately cancel the clean mode to observe proper operation of door unlock
