Whirlpool super Capacity 465 gas range-Door Lock

Hi- My oven door keeps locking by itself, then flashes "FSE1" on the display. The light inside also flashes on and off, all the while I have something in the oven baking. I have never set the self-cleaning function, and have no idea what is causing this!

Thanks for any advice!

    I did clean mine, but when it finished it flashed FSE1 and wouldn't unlock. I still can't get it to unlock.

    I'm having the same warning but have not tried to use the self cleaning feature.

    Had the same problem on electric version of this oven when trying to use the self-cleaning feature. After looking at the door and door locking mechanism to no avail, I tried applying slight (closing) pressure on the door after setting the oven to self-clean. After a few seconds, the "door locked" light illuminated and cleaning began.

Your latch is defective. they have parts that melt when you use the self cleaning cycle. they also just go out. the door should auto latch when you start the cycle but it times out when it is not seen.

Just tried out the self cleaning and got this error.

Got this same error right before last thanksgiving and the door was locking and unlocking erratically and oven wouldn't heat. The only solution to get rid of the noise that we had at the time was to turn off the circuit breaker for the oven.

When we lifted up the top panel and cross referencing the wires with the online diagrams (Googled model number shown when opening drawer which got me to diagrams on http://www.partselect.com/) and my wife notice a hanging wire and said perhaps it shouldn't be hanging and it should plug into something. plugged it in as diagram shows and made a great turkey.

So I'll open this puppy up again and see what I can see and ask my wife to lend her keen eyeballs again ... if I don't post then we failed.

Good luck to the rest of you.

How do I find out what FSE1 or F5E1 means on my oven display


If your oven is by Whirlpool (or from that family), the F5E1 error code indicates that the door lock mechanism is damaged, lock motor isn't working or the sensor can't tell if the door is locked. Did you try to do a self-cleaning cycle on the oven recently? Can you open the oven door? Look at the lock mechanism near the top of the door jamb in the oven and check whether the latch move freely from left to right and back. If the oven door is locked, you open the back panel and try to manually move the lock mechanism to open the door.

Please add a comment with the model of the oven for further assistance. The model number will be on a plaque on the oven frame for most models.

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool gas range self-clean cycle produces FSE1 on display and door doesn't lock, audible alarm sounds


I found this on an appliance forum. It sounds the same as your problem. They say the code is F5 E1. Apparently the door lock latch is stuck.

FSE1 CODE just popped up on the stove and the latch started going back and forth and the interior light would go on and off. We weren't even using the stove or oven when this happened. What does


The F5 E1 error message indicates the latch motor was unable to lock the door. When the self clean cycle is started, the control board will turn on the latch motor which is mounted on the rear of this range. The motor is connected to a cam that transfers the motors motion to a rod that runs under the cook-top. Here is the part to order.

F5E1 or FSE1 error code DOOR LOCKED LATCH NOT OPERATING


On this double oven, each door has it's own latch mechanism that consists of a motor, a position switch, and the door switch used to activate the cavity lights. Because the error indicated a latch failure (and the bottom door was locked), Start by cycling the power to the unit. Each time the power is removed and then applied to these ovens, both latches will lock then unlock the doors to ensure they are in the home open position. By doing so, you might be able to get the bottom oven door opened allowing me access to the latch assembly. With the latch removed, I try to begin a clean cycle so you could watch the motor operate and you will probably find that it will start to turn, but never would rotate enough to lock the door. Since the position switch was not actuated at the end of the motor operation, the F5 E1 error was again displayed. Replace the motor assembly

GE JGBP80 oven shuts off and the locked door light flashes


That's awesome! I just found this site on Christmas day minutes away from family arriving and I had exhausted the manual for help. Under the troubleshooting section of the manual it lists "door Locked" light blinking as a problem with the only solution being - "shut the door." With three dishes in the oven that didn't help!

I took the advice of the site and wiggled the actual door lock on the inside of the oven and that didn't work right away either.

I had to trick the oven into thinking the door was shut by pressing the sensor on the right hand side in and then turn on the oven cleaning cycle with the sensor held down. After the lock activated and moved across with the door open, I had to hold down the door unlock feature and wiggle the lock as it unlocked. A little more complicated, but none the less it worked!

It must be a sensor inside the locking mechanism that isn't reading the lock being open - or something...

We had a quick power outage and when the power came back on it locked our older (1991) Kenmore electric oven model # 40889 / 40881. Went throought the manuel and nothing pertains to this problem. We have turned off the circuit breaker and turned back on, but nothing seems to unlock the door. Any suggestions would be GREAT!!!!!!!
