According to the manufacturer's website you should only need to Press and hold the "Lock" key for 5 seconds. A single tone will sound and the "Loc" will disappear off the display.

This is the link to Whilpool's website and to the manual.

Usually, there are fasteners holding the inside panel to the outside cover together. Between the two is insulation. Your two glass panels are probably held in place by tabs that are folded over or screwed in place retainers. To clean your glass, which apparently is soiled by a leak in the glass to panel and cover seal from either tabs being loose or retaining clips being loose.

You can use Oven Cleaner to clean the glass and then run them through a dishwasher, but check on the can of oven cleaner before you purchase them to be certain this product is safe to use on glass.

Hope this gets you on your way and has fixed your dilemma.

SOURCE: Clean Oven Door Glass

It is much more complicated than that. There are usually more screws once you take out the first 5. There are a total of 3 panes of glass inside the door. If you are very careful to note how the door comes apart once you've removed the screws, then you will be able to do this yourself. Just be aware that this is going to be more complicated than it looks. Lay the door on your counter or floor with the outside of the door up. Take out all the screws around the outer egde of the door. Lift by the handle and turn the top half of the door over so the handle side is on your counter. You will see 2 panes of glass held by the same bracket on each side. You only need to take one of the brackets off and remove both pieces of glass. Now you can clean the inner most piece of glass. Then clean the 2 you removed and put them back. Now reasssemble the door in the reverse steps. Make sure that all insulation and seals are back in place.

You oven latch handle is either bent or the switch that attaches to the last assembly is bad. More likely you have a bent latch. You can get to it after unplugging the range, lifting the cooktop up (3 or 4 screws under the front lip) then the panel under the cooktop has to be removed to see the latch.

the glass in the ovens should not crack when self clean is used. it could be that there was a minut crack in the glass or a build up of moisture in between to door windows that expanded at the extra heat but this should be brought up with the manufacturer for replacement.

I hope this was useful.

Is it safe to use the self cleaning if someone has used oven cleaners? is it safe to use self cleaning with a small crack in door glass?

No and no...
I would use the self cleaning anyway it gets everything too hot and cuases things to go wrong faster, like burning up the coatings on your wires and is a bad idea but it sells go figure.
Definetly noy if your glass has a crack... unless you want to replace it right now...

The inside of my self cleaning smooth top range

Using any kind of cleaning solution can cause the self-clean catalytic coating to be damaged. The glass itself isn't sensitive but don't apply anything like oven cleaner or other caustic cleaner to any of the other surfaces unless your owner's guide specifically permits it. On the glass, I have on occasion used a new single-edge razor blade to remove any heavy, baked on splatters and then conventonal glass cleaner to finish.

Self cleaning caused interior glass to crack

hi there,

this is called thermal breakage. basically, when the mfg. makes the glass, they either don't cook it long enough or let it harden long enough during manufacturing. remember, the glass is supposed to withstand over 1200 degrees, which is temperature during self cleaning. have a technician replace the door glass, as warranty should cover this.

Glass inside oven door.


You asked, there are no instructions how to manually clean the door glass on the inside of the door.

They sell a range cleaner that is like the type of liquid compound you use for your car.
It's thinner an smoother. Just ask at home store!
it's easy.

Cleaning glass on oven door

The marks may be on the inside part of the glass. If so then the door will need to be taken apart for cleaning. You can use a razor blade scraper and glass cleaner to soften the buildup. Self cleaning won't remove if it is on the inside.
