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.

Putting on the oven door of a whirlpool gas range

You may need to pull the hinges away from the oven front to their first rest. That should allow for standing the door back on.

I have an electric wall-mount double Whirlpool self cleaning accubake oven. Can't fnd my manual, so I don't have the model number. It is 9 years old. Put on self clean feature, and it shorted out, and...

If you can see through a grill just above the door, then you might can see the lock linkage, and get something to push the linkage over (be sure to disconnect power first.).

If you can't, you'll need to pull the unit out from the cabinet and access it from the top.

The problem is often a thermal fuse in the top of the oven. But if you can provide more detail info on the oven, I can investigate further.

Whirlpool oven

When I had a similar problem, the door wouldn't unlock even after unplugging, waiting 30 minutes, and plugging the oven back in. I finally had to manually unlock the oven by turning the lock latch motor myself.

Here's a good page that describes what the lock latch motor looks like and where it's located. Of course, there is 220V current running around inside there, so please unplug before removing the back access cover and put it back on before plugging the oven back in.

My symptoms:
  • Oven failed to complete auto-clean cycle.
  • Oven started beeping; control panel showed FSE 1
  • About a minute after plugging in, oven started beeping and displaying FSE 1 again
Once I unlocked the door manually and plugged back in, the oven started behaving normally.
